Falcons Football First Home Game of Season 2017
Kodiak was down seven points and a QB before some fans even made it to their seats Friday night.
And yet, thanks in part to a big fourth quarter by Kodiak’s Joel Francisco, the Bears had a chance to tie Thunder Mountain High School with under three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter at a drier-than-expected TMHS field.
Francisco, who scored a touchdown on the proceeding possession, intercepted a pass along the left sideline. The Bears didn’t find much yardage after that, however, and the 14-7 score in favor of the Falcons was preserved. TMHS sacked backup quarterback Dosey Berry on back-to-back downs to force one final punt.
“It’s the backbone of this team right now,” TMHS coach Randy Quinto said about the defense. “Coach Derek (Loftstrom) has got these guys flying around and doing a really good job.”
