Cardinals finish season 3-6

The Wetmore Cardinals traveled to Wakefield Thursday, Oct. 26, looking for a win, after they fell to Frankfort the week prior. Wakefield played well offensively and defensively and was too much for Wetmore. The Cardinals would lose 6-54 and finish their season 3-6.

“We had too many miscues and gave up too many big plays defensively,” said Head Coach Rick Schnacker. “Wakefield’s size and speed was too much for us tonight. We played hard, but at the end of the game, we could not match Wakefield’s offense and defense.”

Wakefield started off strong in the first quarter, scoring four touchdowns all while holding Wetmore’s offense scoreless.

During the second quarter, Cardinals receiver Ethan Osterhaus found the end zone after catching a 73-yard pass from Kyler Vance. Wetmore’s extra point failed. While Wetmore only scored one touchdown, Wakefield kept their offense going and upped their score to 48. Going into the second half, Wakefield led 48-6.

In the third quarter, Wakefield found the end zone one last time. The final score was 54-6, Wakefield.

Despite the loss, Schnacker said he is proud of the team and their efforts.

“These boys deserve much credit for what they accomplished this season,” he said. “Although our record isn’t what we hoped it would be, we made great strides this season and I’m proud of them. We established a foundation that can be built upon in the future.”
