Oskaloosa Takes Down The Cardinals

Newton, Iowa – It was a return home for Oskaloosa Head Football Coach Jake Jenkins.

It was the first time he was returning home to Newton, but this time he was on the opposite side of the field and using the newly renamed visitor’s locker room, which was named in honor of his father.

His brother stood on the home side, and the brothers focused on their jobs once that whistle blew.

Oskaloosa got off to a quick start when Wyatt Krier carried the ball 10 yards for the touchdown with 8:25 on the clock in the first quarter. The PAT kick by Aaron Blom was good, and Oskaloosa was up 7-0.

Tyler Miller passed to Will Schultz for the 13-yard touchdown with 3:14 remaining in the first quarter. The PAT kick by Blom was good, and Oskaloosa stretches their lead over the Cardinals 14-0.

The first half ended with the Indians not being challenged, adding another touchdown when Tyler Miller rushed 18 yards with 40 seconds remaining. Blom once again boots the PAT through the uprights, and the Indians head to the locker room leading the Cardinals 21-0.

When the teams returned to the field to start the third quarter, the Cardinals were a brand new team. Newton’s Will Cheng carried the ball 12 yards for the Cardinal touchdown with 9:14 remaining in the third quarter. The PAT kick by Josh Meyer was good, and Newton was on the board, trailing the Indians 21-7.

The Cardinals added another score with 11:12 remaining on the game clock. Once again, Will Cheng carried the ball 11 yards for the touchdown. Meyer kicked the PAT through the uprights, and the score is now 21-14 Oskaloosa.

Just four minutes later, the Cardinals tied the ball game when Kyle Long passed to Julian Hotchkin to complete a 24-yard play with 6:57 remaining in the game. Meyer’s kick is good, and the score is 21-21, and the Indians are in danger of falling to the Cardinals.

With 2:54 remaining in the game, Tyler Miller pushes into the end zone from 1 yard out to put the Indians back on top. Blom remained perfect on the night, kicking his fourth PAT of the game, and the Indians are back on top 28-21.
