Brady Madsen tackles a Lake Holcombe/Cornell ball carrier in the backfield Friday night.

Webster lead at halftime 26-8. They could not get any momentum in the second half losing 26-28 to Lake Holcombe/Cornell.

Head coach Andy Smith said in the first half his team was able to keep up with the opposition’s rushing attack but they couldn’t hold on in the second half.

“Auston Sigfrids made some big throws and Gage Rossow and Mason Gustafson were able to come down with some nice catches that really changed the field position battle,” Smith told the Sentinel.

CJ Abbas had a quality performance with 128 yards rushing on 28 attempts.

On defense, the Tigers leading tacklers were Mason Gustafson with 11 total tackles, Timothy Fornengo with nine tackles and Marcus Maxwell who got seven tackles.

Smith commented on Maxwell’s performance, “We had to have a few kids step up because of injuries and I thought that Marcus Maxwell had a great game filling in both offensively and defensively.”

Gage Rossow picked off his second pass of the year, following his pick six last week to start the game.

This week the Tigers match up against Rib Lake/Prentice.

Smith admitted Rib Lake/Prentice has a nice running game and the Tigers will need to kept in check on Friday night when the teams meet in Webster.
