Blue Indians beat Portage Indians


The crowd screams with excitement for another touchdown. It was humid, which was appropriate for the tropical theme.

On Friday, Sept. 6, the varsity football team faced the Portage Indians in a triumphant battle with a final score of 12-8.

Mitchell Oskam (12) played a significant role throughout the game.  He helped to regain possession with a last minute interception near the end.

“[My best moment was] when I intercepted the last play of the game,” Oskam said.

Overall, the team worked together in unity to beat Portage.“Defense shut everyone down.  [On] offense, we need to pick it up a lot,” Thomas Quinn (12) said.

The players progress with the help of Coach Brett St. Germain.

“I think the team played well, which is most important in a football game. You got to have a team that fights.  We made a lot of mistakes but we found a way to win at the end of the game, so that’s the most important thing,” St. Germain said.

The next varsity game will take place at home Sept. 13 against Crown Point.
