LaPorte Slicers 35 – New Prairie Cougars 7

Well I was half right in my prediction. I thought that the Slicers would score 35 points, but I had no idea that New Prairie would be shut down like they were. The game started great for the Slicers. New Prairie fumbled the ball on the first offensive play of the game, and David Kincaid ran the ball into the end zone for a touchdown. Kincaid looked to be trying out for the basketball team as he dribbled the ball into the end zone. On the next New Prairie possession they were driving down the field to tie the game when another fumble gave the ball back to the Slicers. Carlton Austin ran the ball in to make the score 14-0. New Prairie drove the ball right back down the field to get within 7, but that was as close as they would get. The Slicer defense clamped down, and did not allow another score. That defense forced four turnovers, and the offense led by a sophomore quarterback did not give up the ball. This is how I remember this rivalry, and hope that this trend will continue. The Slicers better be as ready to play next week at Mishawaka as they were tonight.
