Multiple Teams · Football Boys Falls in Sectionals


The 2015 football season came to an end Friday in the first round of sectionals against the Lakeland Lakers. The exciting back and fourth game ended with a final score of 42-35. The Patriots strong running offense kept them in this game with a 90 yard performance from Justyn Hart. Silas FInley tallied up 75 yards on the ground as well. Both athletes accounted for 2 touchdowns.

Heritage’s defense had 2 interceptions, one each from Juniors Zach White and Justin Hockemeyer. The Patriots defense struggled a bit against Lakelands big and physical running backs. The Patriots D failed to stop Lakeland on a key 4th down in which that drive eventually led to the deciding touchdown.

The Patriots finish the season with a record of six wins and four losses, one win shy of having the same record as last year’s squad. This was a fine sendoff for both the class of 2016 and Coach Dean Lehrman, who is hanging up his whistle to focus on coaching the baseball team.
