Sophomore Season Writeup
With only seven Fresh/Soph athletes reporting for summer camp, a huge question mark hung over the season for the Sophomore Sentinel Football team. By the time the first game with Sandwich arrived the Sentinels dressed 17 athletes and were somewhat intimidated by more than double the numbers dressed across from them. But to everyone’s surprise, in particular the Sandwich Indians, the young Sentinel team led 7-6 after the first quarter. This was really the beginning of a trend for the season; they were smaller, out numbered, and yet showed up week in and week out, demoralizing many of their opponents. So much so that in week six the Sentinels were playing for the conference championship with a conference record of 3-0-1 against Wilmington 4-0 in conference. That game ended in disappointment with a 35-7 loss to Wilmington who later went undefeated. In the end the young Sentinel team ended the season like they started. Dressing only 17 athletes, they took on the much larger, nearly 60 player squad of the Plano Reapers who were undefeated, allowing only three touchdowns all season. At 3:57 in the first quarter, the Sentinels lead a stunned Reaper sideline. In the end the Sentinels lost a well fought battle 35-20, scoring as many touchdowns against the Reapers as all other opponents combined scored against them all season. In the end, the Sentinels finished the season with a 3-5-1 record, defeating Lisle, Dwight, Reed Custer on homecoming, and tying Seneca. They scored 163 points throughout the season and built memories to last a lifetime.
Varsity Finishes Season with Win
The varsity football team finished the season strong with a 27-14 win over Plano. The Sentinels were led by Zemar Boyd who rushed for 179 yards on 18 carries. Ian Mertens completed 8 of 13 passes for 92 yards. Melvin Jones and Calvin Casper led the Sentinels on defense.
Sophomore Sentinels Play Tough
Only letting up three touchdowns all season the 8-0 Plano Reapers presented a significant foe Friday night for the Sophomore Sentinel Football Team. Never the less the Sentinels managed to score three touchdowns in an exciting 35-20 loss to the Reapers. Gerald Austin, Rushing for 120 yards on 18 carries, and catching two pass for 46 yards scored two touchdowns. Jean Pietrzak scored the other rushing touchdown rushing for 38 yards and passing for 92 yards.
Varsity Falls to Herscher
The varsity team fell to a tough Herscher football team. The Sentinels were lead on offense by Zemar Boyd with 114 yards on 14 carriers. Ian Mertens completed 8 passes for 2 touchdowns to Sam Hummel and Collin Bailey. Melvin Jones and Mark Mckenzie led the Sentinel defense. The football team will play Plano this Friday.
The sophomore football lost to a tough Herscher team. The Sentinels had 123 yards of total offense. Jean Pietrzak had one interception on defense, and rushed for 25 yards on 6 carries. Gerald Austin had 28 yards on one carry before subbing in at offensive tackle for an injured Dawaun Williams. Danny LoGiurato had 15 yards on 7 carries, subbing in for Gerald at wing back. Tim Doll had 43 yards on 11 carries. Vince Aguilar, coming off of injured reserve, averaged 30 yards per punt. He subbed in for Kris Pierce, now starting as varsity linebacker.

Wilmington beats Soph Team
Going into the seventh game of the season who would of thought that the
Sophomore Sentinel Football team, with a record of 3-2-1, 3-0-1 in conference, would be play Wilmington, with a record of 6-0, 4-0 in conference, for the I-8 Small Conference Championship. But indeed this was the case. Unfortunately, the Wilmington Wild Cats took the game much more seriously than we did and scored 31 unanswered points through three quarters of play. One bright spot was a 48 yard touch down run by Gerald Austin early in the forth quarter.
Varsity Falls to Irish
The varsity football team lost 51-14. The Sentinels record now stands at 2-4. The Sentinels were led on the ground by Zamar Boyd 102 yards on 16 carries. The defense was led by Melvin Jones and Colin Bailey.
Soph Team Ties Seneca
The Sophomore Sentinel Football Team struggled against the “Wing T” offense of the Seneca Irish, but with the offensive line blocking bolstered by Kris Pierce, the offense moved the ball well allowing Tim Doll to score on a 14yd touchdown run in the first quarter. The special teams performed exceptionally well scoring twice on kick-off return. The first was an 80 yard run by Tim Doll in the opening seconds of the second half, putting the Sentinels up 12-6. The second was a 70 yard run by Gerald Austin with 3:10 left in the 4th quarter. Nick Oliva tied the score 20-20 on the two point conversion.

Tim Doll ran for 59 yards on 7 carries and 3 touch downs. Not to be out done by the offense Kris Pierce tackled the Comets Quarter back late in the 4th quarter jarring the ball loose, he then scooped up the ball and ran it in for a touch down. The defense did quite well considering the bad field position the special teams left them with through out the game. Jean Pietrzak had an interception and forced a fumble and a fumble recovery. There was the aforementioned forced fumble scoop and score by Kris Pierce; he also led the team in tackles and sacks.

Scoring was balanced with a 20 yd run From Kris Pierce, a 65 yd run from Nick Oliva, and a 1 yd run from Gerald Austin after a 25 yd pass from Jean Pietrzak to Danny Logiurato all taking place in the first half. Pietrzak hooked up with Jermauld Crowder in the second half for a 16 yd touch down. The Defense was very impressive allowing only one first down the entire game. It was a balanced attack with tackles spread out among the linebackers with notable contributions by Kris Pierce and Gerald Austin.
Varsity Loses Tough One to Lisle

Scoring came by way of two passes from Jean Pietrzak, the first, a 48 yard pass to Tim Doll and the second a 26 yard pass to Danny Logiurato in the first quarter. Both touch downs set up by stellar offensive running by Gerald Austin and Kris Pierce. In the Third quarter after Lisle’s first touch down Tim Doll ran the lisle kick-off back for a touch down.

Varsity Plays Tough but Indians Prevail

Sophomores Lose to Indians
After a lot of hard work over the summer and in the preseason, the sophomore Sentinel football team traveled to Sandwich Friday night with high expectations. The young Sentinel team began the 2nd quarter with a 7-6 lead over the Indians after a 47 yard touchdown run by Tim Doll, set up by a great offensive drive featuring Kris Pierce and Jean Pietrzak running the ball and Dewaun Williams, Roman Jones, and Chandler Blaine blocking.
The 2nd & 3rd quarters saw great defensive play, but because of penalties and mental mistakes on the special teams, the Indians had excellent field position to score two unanswered touchdowns. In the 4th quarter, with offensive line blocking bolstered by Kris Pierce and Gerald Austin at the tackle positions instead of their normal running back positions, the young Sentinel team moved the ball well, providing enough time for Pietrzak to hook up with Doll for a pass breaking into the red zone, setting up a touchdown run by Pietrzak. The Indians answered with a touchdown of their own, ending the game with a 28-13 win over the Sentinels.
