On Sept. 29, the Antioch Community High School football team took on the Wauconda Bulldogs at their field. This game was huge for the team, considering they had lost to the Bulldogs two years in a row. But the Sequoits set the tone early and came home with a win 33-12. 


The game opened with the Sequoits in possession of the ball and in just three plays junior Martin Cohen found an edge and ran a 66 yard touchdown in for the Sequoits. Senior Carter Webb made the extra point to put the Sequoits up 7-0.

The defense matched the offenses energy forcing Wauconda to punt after three plays. This punt was fumbled and gave the sequoits the ball on the 15 yard line. After a couple plays, the Sequoits find the end zone again with a one yard rushing touchdown by senior James Sheehan. 


The Sequoit defense remained strong in the following drives forcing a fumble and letting up zero first downs in the first quarter. Whilst the offense continued to march down the field. Senior Nick Day received his first touchdown of the game, to then get two more in the second and fourth quarter. 


The Sequoits were relentless in the first half and finished the half up 26-0. The game plan was to keep the energy going and to not give the Bulldogs any hope of a comeback. 


The second half started with the Sequoits on defense, and after letting up a long run, the Bulldogs scored their first points of the game. Though, these points did not go unanswered, as Day managed to get into the end zone after a long Antioch drive. 


Antioch wrapped up this statement game 33-12. Giving the Wauconda Bulldogs their second loss of the year, and their first conference loss of the year. The Sequoits extend their record to 6-0 and keep their hopes of an undefeated season alive.
