Scots suffer season opening defeat

DUNDEE (9/3/16)--The Dundee varsity football team suffered a 44-13 defeat in their season and home opener against Red Jacket Saturday, Sept. 3. The loss puts the Scots at 0-1 heading into next week's road contest at Hannibal, Saturday, Sept. 10 at 1 p.m.
The Scots received the opening kickoff, but the Indians were able to score first to take an 8-0 lead. This would be the only score of the first quarter.
The second quarter was all Red Jacket, as the Indians took a 30-0 lead into halftime. The scoring continued into the third quarter, as the Indians increased their lead to 44-0. Dundee got their first score of the game early in the fourth quarter on a one-yard quarterback sneak by Kyle Cratsley to bring the score to 44-7. The scoring drive was assisted by kick catch interference and late hit penalties against Red Jacket. After forcing a punt, the Scots scored again on another Cratsley rush to bring the game to its final score of 44-13.
"We are going to get more reps for our younger kids," Head Coach Sheldon Gibson said after the game. "We are extremely young this year. We are asking a lot of our underclassmen. We have many sophomores starting. It does mean that the future is bright, but it means they are being thrown right into games at the varsity level in a kind of trial by fire. We are going to address some things this week in practice to get ready for Hannibal. We are looking forward to that challenge. We just need to try to get better every week."
