Freshmen football defeats Wooster in first home game

By Weston Irons Posted September 10, 2012

Scoring 34 points in the half alone, Lowry’s freshmen football team defeated Wooster High School, 41-6, in their first home game of the season.

Nearly Shutting out the Wooster Colts, Lowry freshmen performed great defensively and offensively and controlled the majority of the game. Coming off the loss to Yerington’s JV team in the team’s season opener, they looked better Thursday night.

“Our first game against Yerington we looked like freshmen playing their first game against a JV squad. We played well at times but made too many mental mistakes to be competitive. But tonight, we cut our mental mistakes way down and everyone played with a sense of urgency,” said Coach Greg Scott.

Anthony Silva and Wyatt Warn both had a good game.

“We had quite a few kids step up and start the process of becoming players. Two kids that stood out to me were Wyatt Warn and Anthony Silva. They were by no means the only ones, but I thought they made the biggest leap from week one to week two,” said Scott.

The freshmen team plays South Tahoe in their upcoming game this Friday.

“I think we regained some confidence and I am looking forward to seeing our growth as a team against South Tahoe Friday night,” said Scott.
