On Saturday, October 13, the young Badger football team had a snowy battle against the Hays-Lodge Pole Thunder Birds.

The Badgers started off the game hot with a 34-yard run from freshmen running back Teagan Jorgensen on the first play from scrimmage. The drive ended with a 5-yard TD run also from Jorgensen. After a 2-point conversion by sophomore Gabe Waters, the score was 8-8.

Later in the half, Jorgensen threw a three-yard TD pass to sophomore tight end Kaden Shelton, but the Badgers did not convert on the two-point conversion. The next drive from the Badgers ended with a 20-yard TD pass from Jorgensen to Shelton once more, with Jorgensen running it in for the two-point conversion.

At half-time, the score was 32-22 favoring the Thunder Birds.

The Badgers scored twice more.  Senior Kolton Lynn made an amazing special-teams play by recovering a botched punt in the end zone for a TD. The last score from the Badgers came following a 50-yard interception return by freshman safety Justin Smith, who was tripped up right near the goal line. Jorgensen then punched it in for six.

“We were able to put some points on the board this week,” said fourth-year head coach Jay Fredrickson.  “We are still having trouble sustaining longer drives offensively and keeping opposing offenses off the field.”

The final score for the Badgers was a 46-36 loss to the Thunder Birds.

The last game of the season for the Badgers took place on Wednesday, October 17 against the Belt Huskies.

Starting off slowly, the Badgers found themselves in a 20-0 hole early. However, two great scores, one by freshman running back Preston Hastings and one by freshman quarterback Justin Smith, allowed the Badgers to trim the score to 20-12 at the half. The Huskies would score their last touchdown early in the second half putting the score to 28-12.

Several more big plays and a never-give-up attitude allowed the Badgers to put up 12 more points before the end, leaving the score at 28-24.

The young Badger team finished 1-8 but is more anxious than ever for the future of Badger football.
