Dundee falls in sectional play

BATAVIA--The Dundee varsity football team ended its season with a 28-6 loss to Notre Dame Saturday, Oct. 20 in the first round of Class D sectionals.
The game opened with turnovers from both teams, with the Scots losing a fumble on their opening drive, followed by a interception by junior linebacker Colin Prior. Notre Dame scored first on a 12 yard touchdown pass, making the score 7-0 by the end of the first quarter.
Notre Dame scored quickly on their next drive on a quarterback keeper after a long pass put them on Dundee's four yard line, putting Dundee at a 14 point deficit. After being forced to punt, Prior nabbed a second interception when Notre Dame was in scoring position, which was then followed up by a 79 yard run by sophomore receiver Jon Huber. After three failed attempts to pound the ball into the end zone, senior quarterback Aksel Jensen took it in himself on a fourth down touchdown run for five yards, making the score 14-6 with less than two minutes left in the half.
Dundee managed to block a punt on Notre Dames next possession, setting the Scots up on Notre Dame's 10 yard line. Junior wide out Paul Pollack proceeded to get into the end zone on a screen pass, but it was called back on a holding penalty. The Scots were unable to score again before the half.
Dundee would not score again throughout the entirety of the second half, as Dundee offensive drives would either stall or suffer key turnovers, failing to build any momentum. Notre Dame scored two more touchdowns, each on one yard rushes, throughout the next two quarters of play, effectively ending the day with a score of 28-6, as well as Dundee's season.
Offensively, a majority of Dundee's offense came on the ground, with Jensen completing one of his 10 passing attempts to Huber for 18 yards. Huber led the team in rushing yards with 88 on five carries, while Prior followed closely behind with 69 yards on 16 carries.
Defensively, Prior led the team with 14 tackles, four of which were unassisted, with Pollack and senior defensive lineman Greg Ellison each getting in on 13 tackles.
