|Written by Bob Kalle|
On Saturday August 22, 2015, the Bears midget football team opened their season against the Colts. The colts took the opening kickoff and drove down to the Bears 28 where the Bears defense stiffened and recovered a fumble on 4th down. The defense was manned by Kundre, Spencer and Roderick on the line with Justin, Darrell and Greg in the linebacker spots and Donte and Colin at the defensive ends..
The offense took over with an offensive line of Dante, CJ, Tyler, Ethan , Brandon and Josh with Denny and Tariq in the wings. The offense stalled and the Colts took over in Bears territory.
On the second drive, the Colts ran for 35 yards and a TD, the extra point was not good.
The Bears got the ball back and after trading penalties, were stopped after three plays and had to punt.
The Colts promptly got the ball back, completed a pass for 16 yards and ran for 18 yards and had their second touchdown. The good after point kick was good making the score 14-0.
The Bears got the ball back one more time in the first half. Justin, Greg, Sayeed and Jackson gave their all carrying the ball, but the time for the half ran out.
The Bears received the second half kickoff and moved the ball a bit up the field. The game ended on the Colts 5 yard line as the Bears threatened the entire 4th quarter. The longest run of the day was 17 yards by Jeremiah. The defense stiffened in the 2nd half, allowing the Colts only 12 plays and no first downs. Players that also played included Grant, Drew, Sean, Ethan, Chris, George, Nick and Kjei.
Everyone was disappointed with the outcome. It means back to work this week preparing for next week’s game.
