The Kimball Cubs welcomed the BBE Jaguars on Friday, Oct. 10, to the last home game for 14 seniors at Kimball. The game didn't go Kimball's way this night as BBE beat the home team 54-16. The Cubs just couldn't match up with the Jaguars' passing offense. The Jags had two receivers standing 6'6" and 6'5" going against Kimball's corners of 5'10" and smaller. The Jaguars' senior quarterback had a career night, as he threw for seven touchdowns and rushed for another. The Cubs scored in the second quarter on a five-yard touchdown run by senior running back Luke Schiefelbein, with the two-point conversion, which got the Cubs within 19-8. That is all the closer the Cubs got. Later in the game, senior quarterback Andy Dingmann hit senior wide receiver Travis Erickson for a 32-yard touchdown pass. Dingmann to senior tight end Stephan Kurkosky for the two-point conversion was the final scoring for the Cubs. The Cubs offensive leaders were Schiefelbein with 100 yards rushing, with a touchdown and two-point run, Dingmann had 140 yards passing and one touchdown, and Erikson led all receivers with five catches and 67 yards receiving. Defensively the Cubs were led by sophomore linebacker Tyler Loch with nine tackles, Schiefelbein with eight tackles and a sack, and senior nose guard Brandon Shonyo with five tackles and a fumble recovery. I would like to thank all the seniors for their hard work, commitment and passion for the game of football. It was my honor to coach these young men for four years. Seniors are Brian Wills, Andy Dingmann, Stephan Kurkosky, Tommy Linn, Luke Schiefelbein, Zach Hedlund, Burke Tagney, Mike Munz, Brandon Shonyo, Alex Bateman, Josh Almgren, Tyler Gregory, Travis Erickson and Tom Winkelman.
