game recap

VARSITY FALL TO FREEDOM 24-14:

The varsity football team took on the Freedom Irish in their level 1 playoff game last Friday. The teams have scrimmaged in the past but this was the first meeting between the teams.

The game started out with Mosinee in possession on their own 32 yard line. Mosinee were able to make some big plays offensively on big runs from Trey Fitzgerald and Will Kennedy. A high snap put a pause to the drive forcing the Indians to pass late in the drive. After an 8 play 54 yard drive the Indians offense were unable to convert on a 4th down pass giving the ball to the Irish on their 25 yard line.

The Irish came out looking to establish the run game inside but were unable to get a groove going and the Defense forced a 3 and out giving the ball back to the offense. The Freedom defense proved to be stingy as they forced a 3 and out of their own on some big plays and a Mosinee Penalty.

The next few drives proved to the be the difference maker as freedom was able to score on their next two drives due to missed tackles from the Mosinee which led to a 2 yard scoring drive and an 11 play drive that ended in a field goal.

Mosinee's offense was able to respond with their biggest drive on the night taking the ball 75 yards for their first touchdown of the night. A balance of ground and air attacks from the offense led by 2 big catches by Jake Klasinski set up the score. The drive was ended on a 12 yard run by Trey Fitzgerald.

The teams would trade a series of 3 and outs each giving the ball back to Freedom on their own 29 yard line.

The next two drives would prove to be the decider as Freedom was able to score on their last drive of the half as well as their first drive of the 2nd half. After this drive they would not see the endzone again.

Right after their opening drive for a score, Freedom was able to move the ball well but were unable to score due to big turnovers caused by an interception from Suk Singh, as well as a fumble recovery by Keign Charneski. The turnovers would not be enough for the Indians that night as the stingy Freedom defense was able to keep the high powered offensive attack in check.

Leading the receivers on the night were Jake Klasinski (4 catches for 61 yards). Drayton Lehman, Michal Dul, and Carter Samples also added catches on the night.

The offense was able to capitalize on one of the turnovers caused by the defense on an 80 yard 8 play drive with a screen pass from Fitzgerald to Carter Samples who took the ball 42 yards for the touchdown.

Leaders of the defensive unit were Suk Singh (1 int), Keign Charneski (5 tackels, 1 fumble recovery), and TJ Obremski (15 tackles).

The loss closes the books on the 2018 season. The Indians finish 7-2 in the regular season and 7-3 overall.

thanks again to everyone involved in making this a great season!
