On October 27, the JV football team traveled to face the Fallon Greenwave putting their undefeated season on the line. The Bucks underestimated the Greenwave, which led to a 28-21 loss in the last game of the season.

Lowry outscored their opponents 345-0 in their first 7 seven games. Fernley was the first team to score on the Bucks, but Lowry still won that game, 48-26. The Bucks also destroyed one of their fiercest rivals in the Truckee Wolverines.

The Bucks had high hopes in going up against the Fallon Greenwave, who were also undefeated. The Bucks started off slowly and fell behind 21-6 at halftime in their first deficit of the season. Lowry was lacking motivation in the first half but they picked it up in the second half cutting the deficit to 21-14 to start the fourth quarter.

The Greenwave extended the lead to 28-14 at the beginning of the quarter but Lowry didn’t have enough time to come all the way back.

Robert Stepper said, “We lacked the motivation at the beginning of the game and in the whole week of practice and it hurt our chances.”

Tytin Johnson, one of the team’s leading tacklers, said, “We had too many turnovers to start the game and we had a lot of drives stop in Fallon territory and we just ran out of time.”

Lowry ended their season at 9-1 and was the first JV team to defeat Truckee. This was one of the most dominant JV teams Lowry has had in a long time and this team is going to be a major factor in Lowry getting a state championship in the next couple of years.
