Our 2012 season came to an end last Friday night with a first round playoff loss to Middleton 36 to 7. Our defense played a solid game, but our offense could not get on track. The only time we got in the "red zone" we scored but we were only there once. We had too much pressure on the quarterback and only had a total of 141 yards on offense. We just could not get into a rhythm for the first time all season. We had a punt blocked which set up Middleton's second score. We have not punted very much all season and this was the first punt that was blocked. We had a chance late in the 3rd quarter after we blocked a punt to make it a one score difference with a touchdown, but our QB got sacked three times in the series to follow, to put us behind the 50 yard line.
We came into the playoff game with a first win over Minico since 2005. That win put us into a Kansas City playoff with Minico and Jerome. We were able to come out of the playoff with the second seed in the conference. Our team battled hard for 5 straight weeks to get us into the playoffs. We seemed to just run out of steam as the old saying goes. We had high expectations for this season with a very tough pre-season schedule. Our staff was pleased with the way our guys performed even though we lost 3 of our first 4 games. We felt that we grew and got better from each of our first four games. We ended up 4 and 1 in conference and shared the title for the conference championship with Minico and Jerome. We graduate 27 seniors and 19 of those seniors have been in our football program four all four of their high school years. Our football banquet will be on November 19th at the Turf Club at 7:00 pm. We would like to thank all of you who have supported our football team this season. We are looking forward to next season and your continued support.
Here are our final stats for the season.
