Apaches fall short at Peru

By Gary Andrews

The Wabash football team got off to a very slow start Friday, falling behind 21-0 to Peru before coming back and falling short 21-20.

After a scoreless first quarter the Tigers would strike three times in the second in a 5½ minute span go grab a 21-0 lead. The Apaches answered with 3:10 left in the half on a 30-yard pass play from Sammy Hipskind to Eryk Weber to make it 21-7 at the half.

Wabash would draw a step closer in the third when they scored on a Hipskind keeper with 7:59 remaining on a 3-yard run to close the gap to 21-14.

With 6:54 left in the fourth, Wabash would score again on a 1-yard run by Luke Proctor, but missed the extra point to make it 21-20 which is where the game ended.
