Twisters lose second meeting with Arlington 34-6

The first time Indianapolis Arlington and Oldenburg Academy met on the football field this season it was not very competitive. The Golden Knights sent the Twisters home with a 61-19 loss.

The two teams met again last Saturday in Brookville and the outcome was the same, but it was much more competitive, according to first-year coach Wes Gillman.

The Twisters closed out the season with a 34-6 loss to Arlington.

It was a “far cry from week three when we trailed this same team 51-7 at halftime,” Gillman commented.  “We were very much in the game and trailed 14-6 at halftime.

“Tremendous improvement throughout the course of the season,” he added.

The Twisters had a pair of key second half turnovers in Arlington territory, which proved to be the difference. “Two second half turnovers in the red zone really killed us,” Gillman noted. “The final score does not indicate the competitiveness of this game.

“Extremely proud of our kids battling through this first year,” he added.

The Twisters got on the scoreboard first in the opening quarter with a rushing touchdown by quarterback Matt Moorman.

The Golden Knights scored twice in the second quarter to take a 14-6 lead into halftime. They added 20 unanswered points over the final two quarters to secure the victory.

Oldenburg was able to move the ball against the Golden Knights and finished with 192 yards passing. Moorman was 14-of-23 for 174 yards, while Tyler Hesselbrock completed one pass for 18 yards.

Luke Roberts was OA’s primary target. Roberts finished with eight catches for 97 yards. Dominic Cigolotti was second with three receptions and 40 yards.

The Twisters finished their first season of football with a 1-6 record. The lone win came against Traders Point Christian by a score of 19-6.
