Western Game 2 vs Lumen Christi
Western lost to Lumen Christi 22-7. Walker Plate scored 3 touchdowns and had 258 yards on 32 carries to pace the Titans. Western was lead by Landon Raczkowski’s 52 yards on 12 carries. He also caught 3 passes for 55 yards including a 38 yard touchdown from quarterback Tyler Pape. Clay Falde’s extra point tied the score at 7 going into the half.
In the second half, Lumen outscored Western 15-0. After Plate’s second TD, Landon French returned the ensuing kickoff to the Lumen Christ 8 yard line. However, a block in the back penalty negated the long return and squelched any momentum the Panthers had gained. Defensively, double-digit tacklers Bode Brown, and Brock Myers paced Western. Julius Adams and Myers had fumble recoveries for the Panthers. Western will host their bitter rivals from Northwest next Friday.
