My Fit Life Personal Trainer AdThe Louisville Leopards Varsity Football Team fell to the visiting Wooster Generals 12-7 Friday Night at Louisville Leopards Stadium. With the loss, Louisville is now 2-4 on the season.

Senior quarterback Tyler Jackson was 14 of 27 for 184 yards passing and connected on a 13 yard touchdown pass to junior wide receiver Zack Seaman with 4:46 to go in the first half. That score gave the Leopards a 7-0 lead that they would take into the half.

Lingenhoel Group - Arden and Lisa Lingenhoel - Cutler Real Estate AdJunior wide receiver AJ Lingenhoel would finish as Louisville’s top receiver with 3 catches for 65 yards. Seaman also made 3 catches for 55 yards and Dan Kennedy pulled in 5 receptions for 33 yards.

The Generals scored 12 unanswered points in the third quarter. Junior wide receiver Zachary Harpster scored on a 19 yard touchdown run with 6:58 to go to tie the game at 7-7. After three-and-outs by both teams, Wooster junior punter Andrew Rader pinned Louisville at their own 1 yard line. 

After a penalty, seniors James Lyons and Luke Stokes stormed into the backfield on the next play for a Wooster safety. That gave the Generals their first lead of the night at 9-7.

Using their ground attack, Wooster pounded their way to the 2 yard line on a 10 play, 40 yard drive following the safety punt. The Leopards defense stiffened and Rader booted through a 20 yard field goal to put Wooster in front 12-7 with 38 seconds left in the third quarter.

The Generals defense shutout the Leopards the rest of the way to complete a perfect 6-0 pre-postseason. Late in the game Wooster had a 1st-and-goal on the 3 yard line, but Louisville’s defense made a goal line stand and held them at the 1 yard line on 4th-and-goal.

Lingenhoel then pulled down a 36 yard completion over the head of two General defenders on 3rd-and-8 for a 36 yard completion to the Leopards 39. However, Louisville’s dream drive would stall four plays later when a 4th-and-4 fell incomplete.
