Kimball football game v Rockford By lamie Leither, coach The Kimball football team opened up the 2011 CMC con- ference schedule with a game against the Rockford Rockets. Both teams came into the game with 1-0 records. This was going to be a tough game for the Cubs. The game started with good defensive plays for both teams. The Cubs turned the ball over three times deep in their end in the first quar- ter. The defense for the Cubs had two big stops to keep the Cubs in the game. The defense was led by LBers Travis Shiefelbein and Tra- vis Wills, but many players helped in the cause. The rockets finally punched one on a one-yard run for a touchdown. After one quar- ter, they were up 6 to 0. They set- tled into a defensive struggle in the second quarter with Rockets scoring one more touchdown to go to halftime up 12 - 0. The Cubs regrouped in the locker room, made some adjustments, and gave the crowd a second half that won't be forgotten for a long time. The second half started with defense stopping Rockford on three plays, then on their first play on offense, sophomore QB Camron Hunt threw a swing pass to senior WR Austin Ruehle and Ruehle went 65 yards for a touch- down. The Cubs were far from done. The defense forced a turn- over in Rockford's territory and Hunt finished the drive with a two- yard run to tie the score at 12. The Cubs went into the fourth quarter with momentum, and they forced four turnovers in the second half. Three ints by Hunt, Ruehle, And Freshman Jordan Joseph kept the Rockets grounded on offense. The Cubs scored on a 12-yard pass to Junior WR Preston Peglow for a touchdown and Andy Linn kicked the PAT for a 19-12 lead. The Rock- ets finally solved the Cubs defense and started moving the ball with a hurry-up offense. They were able to move the ball down the field and score a touchdown with 2:20 left in the game, to make it 19-18. They went for a two-point for a possible win, and came up short, and the score was 19-18. The Cubs recovered the onside kick, but were unable to run out the clock, so the Rockets were able to get the ball back with 1:20 left on the clock. They moved the ball down to the Cubs 23 but ran out of time, as the Cubs hung on for the win. The offense was led by Hunt's 194 yards passing and two touch- downs. Ruehle led the receivers Leisure Page 11 Travis Schiefelbein blocks two Rockford players so Austin Ruehle can gain some big yardage. Staffphoto by Marguerite Laabs.
