Freshman team battles Lennox
The freshman football team lost their fourth game against a tough Lennox team on Thursday, Oct. 4, 39-0. The Tanagers played a tough game and just couldn't seem to stop the Lennox passing attack.

However, the Tanagers kept battling and managed to hold Lennox to only one score in the fourth quarter.

Leading rushers for the Tanagers were Ryan Husby with 82 yards, Dexter Mehlhaf with 60 yards, and Andrew McCann with 45 yards. Ben Kozak was 3-8 passing with 23 yards in the air. On defense Vermillion's leading tacklers were Carson Sullivan, 6 solos; Jake Knutson, 6 solos; Camden Raizola, 5 solos; and Andrew McCann, 4 solos.

Coach Jason Gault commented on the game, "Lennox was a great team today and I don't think we were mentally ready to play this ball game. However, I was very proud of the way the boys regrouped at half time and didn't just give up. It took a lot of heart to have the second half that they did."

Coach Joe Delvaux added that "our defense was decent with the exception of pass coverage. We are so close to being a good football team. We just need to minimize those big plays."

The freshman football team's next game is Thursday, Oct. 11 vs. Canton. Game time is 4:30 p.m. They finish their season up at Elk Point on Oct. 15.
