Otter 7th Graders Fall to West Central Area

By Adam Schlepp - Fergus Falls, MN

The Fergus Falls Otter 7th grade football team hosted the West Central Area Knights in their second home game of the season. The Otters looked to stay unbeaten at home Tuesday evening, but the visiting Knights looked to finish their season 6-0 in what was the final game of their season.

The Otters played stellar defense in the first half, giving up no rushes or passes over ten yards, other than some trickery by the Knights. The Knights were desperate to get on the scoreboard early in the game, and pulled off a sneaky halfback pass to score early in the second quarter. The following two point conversion play was stuffed by Cole Kimball and Micah Bermel of the Otters. The Otters gained several first downs on their next drive, but could not find the end zone for the score. The Knights again needed a trick play to score, and completed a second halfback pass on the last play of the half to take a 12-0 lead into halftime. Mark Dahl and Aiden Swenson led the Otters in tackling in the first half.

The Otters played great defense in the second half again, only allowing three plays over ten yards. Two of these three plays were halfback passes. The Knights had four scoring plays in the whole game, all of which came on halfback passes. The Otters did put a nice drive together in the final drive of the game. The Otters were led by rushers Ethan McGuiness, Henry Wulfekuhle, and Jacob Widness in this final drive. Ethan McGuiness was credited with the Otters sole touchdown of the game on a short run to the right side. The following two point conversion run fell just short of the goal line and the game ends 26-6 in favor of the Knights.

The Otters are 1-1 in home contests, and would like to improve that mark to 2-1 at home next Tuesday against Detroit Lakes on the Levee Field at 4:30 pm.
