The Indian football team traveled to Buhler to play the Crusaders on Oct. 17, winning 17-7, with seven defensive takeaways.  

The first half was 7-3 in favor of the Crusaders, but there were many attempts made that did not end in points being scored. (This is a bit confusing… what do you mean?) 

Junior Tucker Veach intercepted a pass while playing defense for the Indians, which set the Indians up with a good field position.  

In the first half, the only points for the Indians were from senior Matthew Goodale’s field goal.  

Just after the start of the second half, senior Da’Vontai Robinson sacked the Crusaders’ quarterback on a third down.  

The Indian defense had four more interceptions in the second half alone, which made the total five for the whole game.  

Veach had two out of the five interceptions in the game and scored one of the touchdowns. Veach was a standout for the Indian defense.  

Sophomore Gavin Meyers almost had an interception by stealing the ball from the quarterback’s hands, but did not successfully do so.   

 The Indians will take on Salina Central at home on Oct. 25.
