Badger Freshmen Prevail Against Cactus Shadows

21 September 2012  

Badgers 19 - Falcons 7

Despite a few miscues, the Prescott High Badger freshman team beat the Cactus Shadows freshmen on Wednesday night, September 19 at Prescott. A small but encouraging crowd turned out in the late afternoon sunshine to cheer on their team.

This turned out to be a good night for Prescott quarterback Austin Mengarelli and his receivers #83 and #85. They accounted for 12 of the Badgers points on solid pass plays. The third Badger touchdown was scored by Justin Castro, who ran for a couple of first downs, and followed up with a 3 yard touchdown run. Of the three extra point trys, only one was good.

The kicking game was good overall, although the Falcons did score their only touchdown on an 85 yard runback of a kickoff. Derek Knotel is proving to be quite a reliable punter. He also plays on defense and had numerous tackles including a couple of quarterback sacks.

The Badgers’ defense was effective all night. Notable players were Luke Roberts, #49 Hayder, Daniel Hernandez Many others also contributed. The defense was able to break up a last minute passing attack by the Falcons, leaving the final score Badgers 19 - Falcons 7.

Editor's note: Unfortunately, we didn't catch some of the names, only their Jersey numbers. Please accept our apologies.
