The Indian football team played against Garden City on Sept 27. They lost, which moved their record to 1-3.  

The Indians started out strong, by scoring on the second play of the game with a 73-yard touchdown run by sophomore Roy Moroni. The PAT kicked by Matt Goodale, a new addition to the team, was good and pushed the score to 7-0. 

The Indians snapped the ball back 16 yards into the Buffaloes’ end zone, and then the Buffaloes recovered it and scored. They missed the PAT, which left the score at 7-6. 

This was followed by a 65-yard touchdown by sophomore Dylan Dreiling, and then Goodale missed the PAT, leaving the score at 13-6. 

The Buffaloes answered with their own touchdown, updating the score to 13-12.  

Moroni had a 33-yard touchdown, and Goodale made the PAT. The Buffaloes scored another touchdown and got the two-point conversion, tying the game 20-20 at halftime.  

Garden struck first in the second half with a touchdown. The Indians answered right back with senior Hayden Brown’s six-yard touchdown. 

Junior Tucker Veach had an interception and ran it all the way to Garden’s 25-yard line.  The Indians did not score on the next drive, but on the fourth down, Brown found senior Dylan Ruder in the back of the end zone for a touchdown.  

The Indians went for the two-point conversion, and failed at it, which left the score at 32-27 in favor of the Indians.  

The Buffaloes scored one last touchdown and edged the score to 35-32 in favor of the Buffaloes. The Indians will take on Wichita South in Wichita on Oct. 4.
