8th Grade Highlanders Football Defeats Stanley

The Highlander 8th grade flag football team avenged their only this loss this season to Stanley. In Tuesday’s rematch the Highlanders shutout Stanley 14-0. The defense was led by Chris Conn who knocked down many pass attempts and made many tackles. Other outstanding players on defense were Cade Becker and Will Jiang who made many stops on defense, and Max Manalo-Leclair who pressured the Stanley quarterback all game.

The offensive line led by Christian Turner, Jacob Watson, and Max ML provided great pass protection as Nick Pacult completed passes of twenty yards to Andrew Meredith, a 15 yard touchdown pass to Quinn Porter, and a point conversion to Meredith. The second touchdown was a 25 yard touchdown pass from Pacult to Meredith. Later in the game Becker  intercepted two passes that sealed the fate for Stanley. The Highlanders record is now 5-1-1.
