The Indian football team traveled to Goddard Eisenhower to take on the Tigers. It was a mustwin game for the Indians, or else their season would end 

Junior Trey Adams intercepted a pass meant for the Tiger offense. On the Indians first offensive play of the game, they handed the ball off to sophomore Jaren Kanak, and he ran it in for a 53-yard touchdown, followed by the successful PAT by senior Matt Goodale.  

That made the score 7-0 in favor of the Indians. The Tigers scored a touchdown, but the PAT was blocked by Adams. The score was 7-6, when before the half, the Tigers scored another touchdown, but it was called back for holding.  

Three plays later, junior Dawson VonFeldt intercepted a pass and that kept the score at 7-6 in favor of the Indians going into halftime.  

At the beginning of the first half, Goodale kicked a 42-yard field goal, which set a career long for him. That field goal put the score at 10-6, and the Indians came back just a few plays later with a six-yard running touchdown from senior Hayden Brown.  

Shortly after the fourth quarter began, junior Gaven Haselhorst recovered a fumble from the Tiger offense, which was followed by another touchdown for Brown, making the score 24-6. 

The following play, sophomore Dalton Dale intercepted a pass, which led the Indians to faking a field goal, and junior Tucker Veach threw a 10-yard pass to Adams for the last touchdown of the night.  

They won 31-6 and will travel to Maize South on Nov. 8. The seniors and the team hopto keep this momentum running to ensure that their season will not come to an end anytime soon.
