The Sequiot celebs continue to keep up their undefeated season.

On Friday the 13th, a very rainy and cold night, the Antioch Community High School varsity football team battled it out against the Grayslake Central Rams. The Sequoits earned another victory with the score 48-15 and continued to add to their undefeated season of 8-0. 

To start the Homecoming game, junior Martin Cohen returned the opening kickoff and ran 74 yards to the end zone, earning the Sequoits their first touchdown of the game. After the touchdown, senior Carter Webb had a successful kick, earning them an extra point on the scoreboard.  The Sequoits showed in the game’s opening seconds that the weather would not impact their game, and they would maintain their lead for the whole game. 

After this strong start from the Sequoits, senior Aiden Van Alstine gave the team their second touchdown at the 2:27 mark, leaving the first quarter with a 14-0 lead over the Rams.

To begin the second quarter, Cohen ran in another touchdown. Following a long pass from senior quarterback James Sheehan, the Sequoits were set up to score again, with Cohen running in another five-yard touchdown, his third of the game. Following a strong series of defensive plays, the Sequoits ended the half with four unanswered touchdowns to put them up 28-0.

In the third quarter, Homecoming king Nick Day displayed his tumbling skills and jumped over the line, giving the Sequoits an additional touchdown. Day scored his second touchdown of the game later in the third quarter, helping add to his total of 118 rushing game yards. Senior Kellen Brawner showed the defense can put points on the board with a pick-six against the Rams. Following this play, the fourth quarter started and the final score was 48-15. This kicked the Rams out of playoff contention in the Northern Lake County Conference.

With the Sequoits having a great performance each game, they did not let the cold get to them during their Homecoming game. Get geared up for the Sequoits’ last regular season home game against Round Lake Panthers with the theme ski resort on October 20 as they hope to secure their undefeated season.
