Panther football makes a comeback


The Mirror reporter

After a record of 1-4, it didn’t appear that the SPASH football team would have a promising season. But the team managed to stun everybody, dominating Wausau West, DC Everest, and Wisconsin Rapids in their last three games.

Defensive corner Sam Simmons said, “It just feels good to get some wins after we got off on a bad start but we must win the rest of our games in order to make the playoffs.”

When asked about their chances at winning the next game, and making it to the playoffs, each player was confident in their responses.

Offensive lineman Luke Bahling said, “It was pretty bad how we started our season off but when we got back in the groove, we pulled together as a team. Our next game is against a tough opponent but we can pull through, and if we beat them, no team in the state can beat us.”

“It feels great. We’re playing better, and together, and we are peaking at the right time. If we keep playing the rest of our season like we have been, our chances at making playoffs are 100 percent,” said linebacker John Bohanski.

Head coach Pete McAdams said, “The comeback is fun, I feel excited about it. Anytime your players feel the hard work paying off is rewarding. It will be tough to guarantee a spot in the playoffs. We will have to win our next conference game coming up. Our opponents are good, but if we play right, I’m confident it will get taken care of.”

The last game of the regular season for Stevens Point will be against Fond du Lac at Goerke Field at 7:00, on Friday, Oct. 13.
