Papermakers Cut Indians' Postseason Run Short

The Indians and Papermakers played a tight game for the first half, but an avalanche in the third quarter sealed a 31-0 win for Kimberly Friday.

It looked like fans of Kimberly and Menomonee Falls were in for some old fashioned grind-it-out football after the first half Friday at Papermaker Stadium, which is 90 miles north of Falls near Appleton.

However, we all know there are four quarters to a game, and the 28-point third quarter was one seniors won't forget - and the underclassmen will look to redeem next season.

The defenses stole the show in the first half, and the two teams went into halftime with Kimberly up 3-0. But right from the start of the third quarter, the Papermakers cut the Indians with stinging offense and defense. 

The second half quickly turned into the J.P. Peerenboom show for Kimberly. He carried the ball six straight times to drive Kimberly down the field and finish the drive with an 11-yard touchdown run. On the next Falls possesion, running  back Christian Almonte fumbled on the second play from scrimmage.

Peerenboom rushed five more consecutive plays, and then quarterback Ben Diedrick connected with Ben Pribbenow for a 26-yard touchdown pass.

On the next drive, Falls quarterback Adam Vechart was intercepted by Nate Pozolinski who ran it back more that 40 yards for a diving touchdown. Peerenboom added another rushing touchdown late in the third to put the lead at 31-0. Falls threatened late in the game, but never could get on the board.

The Indians finish the season 7-3 overall. The Papermakers will travel to Arrowhead for a level three matchup next week.

A unsuccessful season is never defined by one game, and one game doesn't make your season was successful. When you look at the entire season, the Indian players, especially the Seniors, have a lot to be proud of. Overall, they had a VERY seuccessful season. Congratulations on an exciting season.
