Apache football team downs Alex, 42-7

By Gary Andrews

The Wabash football was out to show they are for real this year on Friday night and did just that as it  beat up on Alexandria, 42-7

The Apaches grabbed a 7-0 lead when Braxtin Rowley scored on a blocked punt. After a defensive stand the Apaches went to work on offense. On the back of Luke Proctor the Apaches marched down the field and were on the five when time ran out.

To start the second the Apache drive stalled when the offense went backwards, then missed a field goal attempt to give the ball back to Alexandria. The Apaches would recover a backwards pass late in the second and take advantage of it. Sammy Hipskind hit Ben Dillon for 31 yards before a Hipskind keeper put the Apaches up 14-0. The Wabash defense would hold once more. After a blocked punt that Reese McDonald ran to the 3, Luke Proctor would score as the Apaches increased their lead to 21-0. Again the defense would come up big with Matt Jones recovering a fumble with 26 seconds left.

The second half would be more of the same as the Apaches totally dominated the game. In the third again it was Proctor carrying the load before Hipskind hit Dillon to the 25. Three more Proctor carries and it was 28-0.

Wabash would tack on two more scores in the fourth. Proctor scored from 15 yards out with the Apaches capping off the night with Owen Yeadon scoring from 25 yards out for the 42-0 lead. Alexandria would score late in the game to avoid the shutout as Wabash beats up on the Tigers 42-7.
