Football ends season with a loss at Maize South



The Indian defense sets up for the next play during their last home game.

On Nov. 8, the Indian football team traveled to Maize South to take on the Mavericks for their second playoff game after beating Goddard Eisenhower last week on the road.  

The Indians started off strong, with a touchdown for sophomore Carson Kieffer, and that was followed by a successful PAT by senior Matthew Goodale.  

The Mavericks fired right back, with a touchdown of their own on their second possession of the game. That tied the game at 7-7, and just a few plays later, junior Gaven Haselhorst recovered a fumble made by the Mavericks.  

The Indians could not keep the momentum going, so after four plays, the Mavericks had the ball again. They scored just two downs later, edging the score to 14-7 in favor of the Mavericks.  

Junior Tucker Veach had an interception the next time Maize South had the ball, and then after three downs, Goodale kicked a field goal, which made the score 14-10 in favor of the Mavericks at halftime.  

The second half was brutal for the Indians. They gave up 27 points in the second half alone and did not score the rest of the game.  

The Indians played the whole second half without sophomore Dylan Dreiling, who is the starting quarterback.  

The Indians will have 11 graduating seniors, including, Hayden Brown, Taivian CreamerBrian EscobedoLuke FletcherBrock Lummus, Gavin ManningDa’Vontai Robinson, Jimmie RoeDylan Ruder, Drake Summers, and Hunter Wellbrock.
