On Friday evening, the Canadian Wildcats drove into a town filled with Black & Blue ribbon celebrating it’s homecoming. Those same Wildcats came ready to play some football, despite the festivities. Eagles fought hard but without some key players, found a well- disciplined opponent.
The first half was all Wildcats. They moved their offense and scored rather quickly to take an early 18-0 lead before a packed stadium.
Turnovers plagued the Eagles all night, and gave the Wildcats great field position.
On a better note, the Eagles continued to get great defensive plays from Caleb Manzella, Brady Robbins and Aaron Swain. Halftime score was 26-0.
When the Eagles returned, they seemed to be on a different track, but a costly return kick fumble gave Canadian six more points.
A pass from Chris Bryan to Christian Ward would give Ward his first TD this season. PAT failed and the score was 26-6.
Fritch’s Robbins picked up a huge fumble recovery that looked to be a great turning point. The luck soon faded when an interception that gave Canadian the ball again. WR Issac Lewis was gave Canadian a touchdown in the last quarter.
All the injuries to key players of Fritch meant a rough night for Bryan and Valle, statistically.
Hopefully, healthy players returning will help get Fritch back on track before next week’s game in Tulia.
Final score Canadian 44 Fritch 6
