Chelsea High School
Tecumseh High School
Tecumseh’s offense worked hard all day but wasn’t able to convert in key situations. The defense played well but was on the field for too many snaps and eventually give up some points. Chelsea played a solid game and put a lot of pressure on the Tecumseh team, who overall played well just wasn’t able to get a few brakes.
Tecumseh came out strong and started on offense. They moved the ball well on their opening drive but threw an interception giving Chelsea the ball deep in their own territory. Two plays later Chelsea scored on a running play. Tecumseh's defense played hard and held the score 6-0 through the quarter.
Chelsea opened the quarter with a long drive resulting in a running TD. Tecumseh had a good second offensive drive that stalled and was forced to punt. Chelsea then drove for another running TD. Tecumseh offense again drove the ball deep into Chelsea's territory but turned it over on downs. Chelsea was able to then take the ball and score on a long pass play before half.
Tecumseh's defense came out strong holding Chelsea forcing them to turn the ball over on downs. Chelsea was able to then force Tecumseh to turn the ball over on downs. On the following drive Chelsea was able to complete a long drive with a running TD.
This quarter was a defensive battle with neither team able to produce much yardage. Both teams turned the ball over on downs on multiple drives.
