Varsity Football Falls to Challenging Competitor

Sam Newton is hoping that the offense will get closer to the field goal range, so he can play. While he was waiting, he cheered on the team.

The football team competed against O’Fallon at Francis Howell Central on Sept. 13 for its regular season game. Central lost 26-20, but they are not going to let that ruin their season.

“We kind of felt like the scoreboard didn’t reflected how we played,” senior Sam Newton said. “We knew O’Fallon was going to be a good team.”

Newton felt the team tried their hardest, even though they didn’t win. Newton knew O’Fallon was a good team and playing against them would be a challenge, and was just happy to compete against them.

“We are doing way better, We have way more chemistry than in the past, the whole team we’ve known each for a while. We’re all good friends,” senior Kyle Roland said.

Roland felt the team is better this year than in past year because they all are more comfortable with each other. It was a close game; so they were able to keep up with O’Fallon on the scoreboard for most of the game.
