Washington too much for Oldenburg Academy on football field

The Oldenburg Academy football team traveled to Indianapolis to face Washington on Friday.

The Twisters struggled to stop the Washington offensive attack and suffered a 65-7 loss.

"Washington's overall size and team speed made if difficult for us all evening," OA head coach Wes Gillman commented. "Defensively, we had a hard time containing their speed in the open field, and offensively, we had a difficult time blocking their speed up front."

The Continentals scored 31 points in the first quarter and tallied another 28 in the second. The second half they were held to just six points.

Oldenburg's lone score came in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Matt Moorman tossed a touchdown pass to running back Luke Roberts.

Moorman finished with 150 yards passing, while completing 13-of-26 attempts. Roberts led the team in receiving with three catches for 50 yards. Bryce Ahaus, Dominic Cigolotti, Tyler Hesselbrock, Jason Kline, and Nathan Hurm also caught passes on the evening, according to Gillman.

The Twisters were not able to get anything going on the ground. They finished with only six yards rushing.

"We will remember how this loss feels, put it in our back pocket, and continue to build as a program," Gillman commented. "It's difficult going up against experienced varsity football teams with mostly freshmen and

sophomores on our roster.

"But we also believe this is going to make us better in the long run. Our kids will recover from this and get back after it," he added.

The Twisters (1-4) return to action Oct. 11 when they travel to winless Union (Dugger) High School. The game is scheduled to start at 8 p.m.
