Mooseheart got its 2016 football season off and running on Friday, but visiting Westminster Christian spoiled the Ramblers home opener, inflicting a 49-12 defeat on the Ramblers.
Mooseheart, coming off an 0-9 season in 2015, fell behind 28-0, but kept working to come back throughout the contest. The Ramblers got on the scoreboard with 2:55 to play in the first quarter when quarterback Tarry Johnson ran in from 35 yards.
A senior this year, Johnson was one of the team’s bright spots. He rushed for 128 yards on 15 carries and scored both his team’s touchdowns. Johnson’s second scoring run came from 15 yards with 6:30 left in the fourth quarter and proved to be the final play of the game.
Shortly after the Ramblers’ failed two-point conversion after Johnson’s second TD, game officials spotted lighting in the sky, which normally forces teams off the field for a minimum of 30 minutes. With radar showing a storm moving in, and with the score lopsided in the visiting Warriors’ favor, the schools’ athletic directors ended the game.
First-year Mooseheart football coach Jacob Pekofske got his first chance to see his team in game action in Friday’s contest.
“We’ve got some work to do,” Pekofske said. “It’s a work in progress at all times. Monday will come, we’ll watch some film and we’ll learn from it.”
Mooseheart returns to action next Friday with another home game, this time against Rockford Christian Life. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.
“We’ve got to take this one with a grain of salt,” Pekofske said. “We’re trying to change the culture after last season. We’re going to learn from this and move forward and get ready for the next one.”
