Week #5 Central Catholic vs. Pontiac
Saints Miss Capitalizing On Turnovers
Normal (Hancock Stadium) - The Saints fans may have thought Christmas had come early as Pontiac fumbled the ball twice late in the fourth quarter in their own territory, giving the Saints a chance to tie the game up or win, but the Indians defense decided to play the role of Grinch.
With 5:38 left in the game and Pontiac leading 21-7 a Pat Fruin fumble recovery couldn't have come at a better time. Pontiac's defense who had played tough all night long didn't even allow Central to get a first down on this possession. The Indians chasedAndy Newbold out of the pocket on 4 & 7 and would stop him short by a few yards of getting one. Two plays later Andrew DuFrenne would recovered another Indians fumble to give the ball back to the Saints with 2:35. The Saints would come up short once again as a Newbold pass to a closely covered Fuin would sail in front of him by a few feet as he lunged in the back of the endzone with only 1:48 left
Pontiac would then run down the clock with fullback Kevin Watson.
Central got it's only points of the night from a scoring that started in their own territory. Running back Brian Segobiano did just about everything he could to put the Saints into the endzone, with the clock running down in the 2nd quarter, on a halfback pass he threw a strike to QB Andy Newbold which put them with in a few yards of scoring. On the very next play Segobiano lost his helmet as he pushed his way into the endzone to give the Indians defense it's only blemish of the night.
Both Defenses played hard in the throughout the night as Aaron Vogt for Pontiac and Brandon Soebbing for Central made big plays for their teams.
