The Wildkats finished off the 2020 regular season game with a 52-27win against Indianapolis Arsenal Tech High School. The win brought the Kats record to 4-3 to complete the regular season above .500 for the first time since the 2017 season.
We got off to a slow start digging ourselves into a 21-11 hole in the second quarter. From that point on, we outscored the Titans 41-6. Overcoming our break from COVID-19, we knew we would start slow but preached all week to finish strong in all aspects of the game.
On offense we had 447 total yards and averaged over 9.0 yards per play! Leading us on the ground was Plez Lawrence with 169 yards and four touchdowns. Torian Smith had his season high with 96 yards and added another score. Evan Barker had another efficient night going 5-for-6passing for 122 yards and two touchdowns. The offensive line continued to click after two weeks off. Bronson Smith, Bryson Shoemaker, George Montes, Amir Cummings, Mitchell Van Horn, Sam Baity, and Noah Smalley were very impressive leading the way for a team total of 325 rushing yards.
On the defensive side of the ball Ta’Shy Stewart led the way with 12 total tackles, two interceptions, and also added 114 all-purpose yards in receiving and return yards. The linebacking core was solid totaling 17 tackles between Myles Lenoir and John Curl. Both had a blocked kick and they also added 1.5 sacks! Smith also added two interceptions on the night as well.
It was a night full of adversity but finding a way to overcome that and coming out on top after everything that we have faced in the last two weeks shows that this team is still ready to play a lot of football. We have a bye week this week, but come back and take on McCutcheon in Sectional 12 action at home!
Looking forward to seeing everyone on October 30th at Walter Cross Field at 7:00 pm.
