On September 7, The Lowry Varsity football team played the weaker Wooster Colts and faced little trouble. After a tough loss to the Truckee Wolverines the week before, the Bucks managed to dominate the Colts from the beginning of the game in a 31-3 win.
The Bucks started off slow as Wooster was able to continuously run the ball up the middle with little resistance and Lowry had trouble moving the ball down the field. But the Bucks tightened up and asserted their dominance as they sprung out to a 17-3 lead at the half.
In the second half, the Buckaroos went to town on the Colts as they forced the Colts into multiple three–and–outs. The Lowry offense utilized their passing game in the second half and marched the ball down the field at will as they ended up with a win in the record book.
“I think the game went really smooth, our team improved a lot since the game against Truckee,” said junior Kirk Berensten.
The Bucks were led by senior Michal Arenas who scored two rushing touchdowns and had a total of 72 rushing yards. Calvin Connors went 9-15 in the air for a total of 131 yards.
The Bucks face off against the South Tahoe Vikings as they hope to not only improve their win total but also make some improvements on the field.
“We could definitely work on our pass protection a little bit more, but if we come onto the field and play as a team and play hard we will be alright,” said Berensten.
