Cubs varsity football

The Kimball cubs fell to BBE 0 - 15 last Wednesday night. The cubs seemed shell-shocked when BBE put 15 on the board in the first quarter because of cub misques. But for the first time, all season the defense really stiffened up and wouldn't allow anything else for the rest of the game.

Other than one blown coverage which gave a touchdown to BBE, the defense played their finest game all year by far. As a unit, they found that they can hit and tackle. The pursuit to the ball and the effort was excellent.

Tyler Loch led the team with 20 tackles and Travis Schiefelbein was next with 15. Every member of the defense will receive a skull sticker for their helmets for their efforts against the jaguars.

Special teams were consistent after the long snap in the first quarter that went over the punter's head which gave BBE two points from the safety. Offensively, let's just say Wednesday was not the night to have seven turnovers, on one fumble in particular that BBE fell on in the endzone for a touchdown. We had too many misques and lacked intensity in the line to get the running game going.

Last Wednesday's was another game where the cubs have yet to show a complete game on all three sides of the ball. Yet, a big step was taken on the defensive side and hopefully just in time for the playoffs. Kimball's last regular season game is in Kimball versus Rockford at 7 p.m. Tuesday night, Oct. 20.
