buckeyevsphsAlthough Wednesday's freshman football game against the Buckeye Hawks got off to a somewhat late start, the Badgers lost no time in jumping out to a lead.  After receiving the opening kickoff, the Badgers moved the ball well down the field with most carries being by #23 Chris Wright and #83 Kaine Bayze.  Helped along by a couple of penalties against the Hawks the Badgers got into the endzone first on a touchdown run by#83 Bayze.  The extra point try for a two point conversion was frustrated and the score was Badgers 6--Hawks 0.

The Hawks first series was a harbinger of things to come for them with three short running plays followed by a short punt.

After good runs by #21 Parker, #22 Julian Flores, # 83 Bayze and #7 Cole Roberts, the Badgers fumbled but .the Hawk runback was frustrated by a tackle by #52 Tim Duensing.

The second half featured a sack by #79 Jonathan Jarman, a blocked punt by #51 Sam Carnes  and a touchdown by #42 Alex Kinckerbocker.  Tackles were made by #9 Laursen, #49 LaMaster, and #21 Parker.  Another notable play was a completed pass by #7 Cole to #88 Joey Guzman for a touchdown.  This time the 2 point conversion was successful and the score at the end of the first half was Badgers 20-Hawks 0.

The ball went back and forth in the 3rd quarter with some good efforts by both teams nullified by bad punts and penalties. Alex Knickerbocker was injured and had to leave the game, although he returned at the end of the fourth quarter.  A touchdown was scored by #23 Chris Wright on a good run, leading to a score of Badgers 26-Hawks 0.  A fumble recovery was run back to near the goal line by #49 Tim LaMaster and punched in by #23 Chris Wright for the final score of the game.

There were long time outs after injuries to #55 Jared Hollaway, who had to be helped from the field, and to a Hawk player.  Hollaway was unable to return to the game, sitting out with a iced knee.  The trainer says he believes that the injury was a hyperextension, not a sprain, and Hollaway should be back on his feet soon.

In the fourth quarter many players made contributions including #64 Josh Newhall, #51 Sam Carnes #40 Jared Tiefenthaler and #9 Anthony Laursen and #49 LaMaster, who had a takeaway.

The final score was Badgers 32-Hawks 0.
