Fort Scott High School's freshmen football football team defeated Colgan's frosh, 28-14, Monday night in a game at Frary Field which was held up three times, then shortened by lightning.

The game began 36 minutes late, then was delayed an extra 15 minutes at halftime. The third quarter was shortened after a third delay.

Colgan scored first when quarterback Luke Marquardt scored on a keeper from 21 yards out. A 2-point conversion failed.

Jash Pytlowany tied the score early in the second quarter on a 1-yard run and Jonathan Allen put the Tigers ahead with the extra-point kick.

Race Kastl returned a Colgan fumble 26 yards for a touchdown later in the period to make it 13-6 after the PAT kick was wide.

Quarterback Zach Denton threw a slip-screen pass to Allen for a 28-yard scoring play with 5:36 left in the third period. Denton then found Clayton Hixon for the 2-point conversion to make it 21-6.

After the third delay, the teams traded ends of the field and the clock was reset to 10 minutes for the start of the fourth quarter.

Denton scored on a 26-yard run to make it 28-6 with 6:49 left in the game. Marquardt cut the deficit with another keeper run with 1:42 remaining, then found Christian Cedeno for the 2-point conversion to cut the margin to 28-14.

The Panthers attempted an onside kick but the Tigers recovered.

This was the last game of the season for the freshmen, who were playing Colgan as a replacement for Iola, which did not have enough freshmen out for football to field a team.
