The Holt Indians fell behind late in the first half to the Ft. Zumwalt South Bulldogs Friday at Soby Field, the came back late to make a game of it but came up on the losing side 49-35. The game marked the return of Coach Place to the sidelines…great to see him back!
The game was a back and forth affair early in the first half, Indian penalties allowed the Bulldogs to extend a lead to 21 points at half.
After halftime the Indians came out running on all cylinders on offense and moved the ball well the entire half. Sophomore RB Cole Mueller had several nice runs and runs after catch and Junior QB Drew Law got the receivers in the mix as well. The young offensive line continued their improvement.
Defensively the penalties and missed tackles hurt the Indians, there were a few good stops during the game but as a whole they will try and tighten it up for their next game.
Next up is Ft. Zumwalt East, Friday night at Soby Field, this is the last home game of the year and Senior night.
