Bosco’s football season is over
By Ken Thoma

Behind 14-20 at halftime in the big football game last Friday night, Don Bosco’s defense and offense controlled the ball for nearly all the 2nd half as they scored twice, intercepted the ball one more time and forced three punts, but squandered too many scoring opportunities before Rockford scored to tie the game at 26-26 with just 31 seconds on the clock.

In overtime from the 10-yard line the Dons raced in for a TD but had it called back for holding and they could not recover their composure, giving Rockford their chance to run the ball into the end zone in just three plays, ending the season for Don Bosco.

For the record, the Dons leading rusher and tackler, Thomas Even, was out the entire game with a sprained ankle from the previous game and also out was big lineman, Alec Carpenter, with a concussion.

The quarterfinal loss ends the Don’s season with a record of 9-2 as the school will now prepare for basketball and wrestling. Note also: each of the top-four-rated teams lost that evening!
