This past Friday, Oct. 8, was the homecoming football game for St. Louis who played against Saginaw’s Nouvel Catholic Central Football team. It was a lengthy and entertaining game for all of those who attended, and the Sharks came out on top with a 14-12 victory. The first quarter was off to a great start, as the Sharks scored first on a Michael Baysah touchdown reception from Reece Giles. The Sharks added another touchdown in the second quarter when Ignatius Jackson connected with Trenton Farkas on a long halfback pass.

Sideline cheerleader Autumn Mann stated, “I believe that this game went great! I definitely know that we could have done better. However, the crowd had great energy, and I’m so proud of the boys for keeping up the great work and never giving up.” 

Once the second quarter was done and over with, an extended halftime began. Since this was homecoming, the court announced king and queen: Ignatius Jackson and Elizabeth Munderloh.

Once halftime concluded, the game continued and the teams traded the ball back and forth constantly almost as if either team wanted the win. Nouvel Catholic Central eventually scored six points whereas the Sharks were blanked for the rest of the game. 

The game ended on an amazing defensive stand which culminated in a Baysah fourth-down sack to preserve the two-point victory for the Sharks.

Junior Michael Hart commented, ”It was amazing plus I got to see Stedman again.”
