Louisville and Jackson Clash in Football Scrimmage

Bryce Mathie Louisville Leopards Vs. Jackson Polar Bears

The Louisville Leopards and Jackson Polar Bears competed in a football scrimmage at Louisville Leopards Stadium Saturday Morning.

The scrimmage began with Special Teams. Jordan Hughes made a field goal from 42 yards away and Beatty's Sports Under Armour Summer 2013 Adwas accurate on most of his kicks leading up to that. Stephen Kerzan assumed punting duties as well and Kyle Woost, Garrett Yoder, and Dakota James took Kick/Punt Returns.

Next, each team ran goal-to-go series starting on the 10 yard line. The Polar Bears 1st String scored on 2 of their 3 goal-to-go possessions and the Leopards scored on both of their 2 goal-to-go possessions. Runningback Walter Schrock scored from 10 yards out and Quarterback Connor Zwick hit Wide Receiver Andy Minster for an 8 yard score.

Each team’s second string tried two goal-to-go possessions. Jackson scored on both of their possessions, while Louisville scored on 1 of 2. Quarterback Joe Crank found the endzone from 5 yards out for the Leopards touchdown.

On the first play of the normal 10-play scrimmage, Bryce Mathie stirred the crowd with a pick six. Dylan Kline also had a sack during the Leopard’s first defensive possession. Jackson’s first touchdown came after a debatable jump ball that was nearly intercepted by Yoder. This type of play has become known as a “Touchdown Seahawks” in the football world. The Polar Bears also scored on a long pass play before their offensive possession ended.

Louisville also scored on their first possession. They methodically took the ball down the field before Zwick hit Minster for about a 25 yard completion inside the Jackson 10. Zwick then hit Schrock for the score.

On the next possession, Kyle Ashcraft recovered a fumble on defense for the Leps. Leopard Nation’s coverage of the scrimmage ended after that in order to cover Volleyball in North Canton.
