The football team finished their regular season last night with a record of 9-0, beating the Grayslake North Knights 25-20.

Both teams played aggressively; the Sequoit defense held the Knights through the first half, while the Knight defense held the Sequoits to 3 on a 48 yard field goal by senior Benjamin Gutke, breaking the previous school record of 46 yards also set by Gutke.

The Sequoits started off strong in the second half with an eventful third quarter thanks to a big run by senior Michael Kawell. The Sequoits followed this with a pass by junior quarterback Branden Gallimore to junior Javen London for a touchdown. Gutke then ran for a two point conversion to put the Sequoits ahead 11-0.

Though the Knights countered this with two touchdowns of their own, junior Drew Porter ran for a touchdown to make the score 18-13 at the end of the third quarter.

Gallimore started the fourth quarter by running for a touchdown, to put the Sequoits ahead 25-13. The Knights came back with another touchdown to bring the came to 25-20.

With 55 seconds left in the fourth quarter and the Knights at their 40 yard line, junior Andrew Hare intercepted a pass to end the game with a score of 25-20.

“Freshman year my team went 3-6, and now we’re 9-0, it’s insane. Nobody ever thought this would happen,” senior, captain George Bessette said. “Nobody ever thinks that Antioch is going to go anywhere and nobody thinks that we’re good; so going into the playoffs 9-0 is a statement.”

The boys look to continue their winning streak in their first playoff game at home next Friday, October 28, against the Wauconda Bulldogs. The first time the two teams matched up this season the Sequoits got the victory 33-29.

“I love it [being 9-0]. I’m so happy on so many levels for the players, the coaches, the Cardinal Crazies, and the school, it’s so exciting. This is a big part of what high school is about,” head coach Brian Glashagel said. 

The team plans on getting healthy again before their next game, as well as working on their weaknesses for preparing to play Wauconda.
