Apaches stumble in season opener

by Gary Andrews

The Wabash Apache football team got off to a bad start at Peru on Friday and could never recover in a 40-13 loss to the Tigers.

Wabash would win the coin flip and deferred to Peru who elected to receive the ball to start the game. As it turned out, it was the right decision for the Tigers as they ran the opening kick off back for a touchdown to take a 7-0 lead 14 seconds into the game.

Peru would score two more times in the first quarter and led the Apaches 21-0 at the end of one. The Wabash offense couldn’t get anything going, giving the ball back to Peru as the Tigers scored two more times in the first half to lead 34-0 at halftime.

Down 40-0 the Apaches broke the ice with a Cody Clemons touchdown to make it 40-6 with 9:08 remaining. The Apaches would score one more time on a Yeadon three yard run for the 40-13 final.
