On Friday, Oct. 15, the Sequoit football team rolled through Round Lake with a final score of 54 – 6. The Sequoits led the Panthers with a 40 – 0 lead until halftime. 

The Sequoits as a whole played exceptionally well and only allowed the Panthers to score a single touchdown and stopped the Panthers from executing a two-point conversion. 

The defense played very well with many broken-up passes, tackles for yardage lost and a touchdown.

In the second half of the game, a huge broken-up pass that sparked the Seqouits was from junior Payton Holmes. 

The offense had an absurd amount of touchdowns to win the homecoming game for the Sequoits.

Junior Aidan Lennon had an amazing game with two touchdowns and lots of rushing yards. Lennon was very impressed with his team overall.

“We executed little details which lead us to a huge win, and a spot in the playoffs,” Lennon said.

There were many outstanding plays in this game. Still, some of the best were from senior Roberto Dominguez with an interception, Hunter Bukowy with an interception and touchdown, senior Austin Vasquez with a hard tackle and loss for yards and junior Ethan Kolloff with a fumble recovery and touchdown.

Kolloff’s fumble recovery and touchdown had the crowd cheering and the team hyped up to win. 

“I was thinking to myself did I really just score, but once it started to set in, it felt amazing especially when my teammates were bombarding me on the sidelines,” Kolloff said.

The Sequoits had numerous touchdowns from both offense and defensive players. One touchdown that stood out to the team was from Reino Hill. 

Hill played a great game with one touchdown, lots of rushing yards, and a huge first down to help the Sequoits score.

“As an individual I think I played pretty well, we spread the ball around so there weren’t too many opportunities for myself but I made most of what I was given,” Hill said.

Freshman Martin Cohen made an appearance in the fourth quarter and scored his first varsity touchdown to secure a big lead.

This homecoming game for the Sequoits was a game to remember with all the outstanding and impressive plays made by the team.
