Football falls to Great Bend 35-14



The Indians football team met with its well-known rival Friday night for a well fought game. The Great Bend Panthers were ready to play, being ranked fifth.

Fumbling the football in the first quarter, the Indians set Great Bend’s quarterback Jacob Murray for an open play. The Indians responded with 11 plays and reached the 21 yard line before they lost the ball on downs. The Panthers came back with a scoring drive to put them up 13-0, but missing the extra point.

With offense finally starting to coordinate, sophomore Keaton Markley scores a touchdown for the Indians off a 7 yard rush. Junior Hunter Brown then hit senior Collyn Kreutzer for a 15 yard touchdown. With junior Logan Clark making both of the extra points, this put the Indians up 14-13 at the half.

Fresh out of halftime, the Panthers hit Cal Marshall to score them a touchdown, followed by a two point conversion to put them ahead of the Indians 21-14. Panthers outscored the Indians 22-0 in the second half, leading to a 35-14 win.

Indians are now 1-1 on the season, and will look to expand that to 2-1 on Sept 16 at their first home game against Liberal.
