CAPAC — Capac came out on top of a 21-16 road verdict over Memphis in a Greater Thumb Conference East Division varsity football meeting last Friday night.
With the outcome, Capac raises its mark to 1-4 and 1-2. Memphis falls to 0-5 and 0-4.
In Friday’s meeting, Capac and Memphis concluded the initial quarter with zero points each.
Quarter two saw Memphis collect 16 points and Capac manage none.
When play resumed, Capac started to mount a comeback bid. Aided by a 14-0 third quarter edge, the Chiefs were able to trim their deficit to 16-14 with 36 minutes gone.
Capac then outscored Memphis 7-0 the rest of the way, pulling out a 21-16 victory.
The winning Capac side generated their 21-point output aided by a Jared Fahley to Conner Robinson 21-yard touchdown pass (followed by an Ethan Bastian PAT tote); a Fahley to Robinson four-yard touchdown pass; and a Fahley to Robinson 11-yard touchdown pass (followed by an accurate extra point boot from Ben Laskowski).
For the evening, Fahley completed nine of 15 pass plays for 79 as Capac’s quarterback. He threw zero interceptions along the way.
His successful tosses were distributed to three different targets. Their ranks consisted of Robinson (six catches for 58 yards), Danny Parski (two receptions for 14 yards) and Bastian (one catch for seven yards).
The Capac ground attack finished with 127 yards on 31 totes.
Jordan Cherry (19 rushes for 130 yards) and Bastian (10 yards on seven totes) supplied Capac’s top individual outputs. The remaining five Chief rushes netted a combined 13-yard loss.
Cherry (three solos and four assists) and Michael Dean (two solos and five assists) supplied Capac’s highest tackle totals. Robinson (four solos and two assists) and Omar Navarro (four solos) made their presence felt as well.
The Capac defense also registered one takeaway. Shane Hofmann (an interception) accounted for that.
Capac returns to action this Friday when it entertains Greater Thumb Conference East Division counterpart Ubly. That matchup lists a 7 p.m. starting time.
