CAPAC — The Capac varsity football team finished their 2022 season with a 60-6 road setback to Brown City in a non-league clash involving 8-Man squads last Thursday night.
With the decision, Brown City improves to 8-1. Capac watches a 3-6 campaign reach an endpoint.
“I was very disappointed in our tackling and pass coverage,” Capac Coach Rob Novy said. “We scored on our first drive but after that Brown City took it to us,” he noted.
“Derek Mason had a nice game at quarterback and Zach Langmesser had a good game on offense and returning kicks for us. We made a lot of improvements this year but have a long way to go in order to compete for our league title.”
In Thursday’s clash, Capac spotted Brown City a 32-6 advantage after one quarter was over with and trailed 39-6 at the half.
When the action resumed, Brown City continued to pull away. Thanks to a 14-0 third quarter edge, the Green Devils widened the gap to 53-6 with 36 minutes gone.
Brown City then outscored Capac 6-0 the rest of the way, finishing off a 60-6 win.
Capac generated their six-point total aided by a two-yard touchdown run by Derek Mason.
Mason connected on seven of 12 of pass plays for 72 yards as Capac’s quarterback. He threw one interception en route to those numbers.
Carlos Uribe-Arce was the other Capac player who aired out the football. Uribe-Arce completed one of two pass plays for 31 yards with no interceptions.
Their successful tosses were distributed to four different targets. Their ranks consisted of Zach Langmesser (three catches for 66 yards), Blake Phillips (two receptions for 17 yards), Wyatt Hurley (two catches for 14 yards) and Aden Uribe-Arce (one reception for six yards).
The Capac ground attack added 98 yards on 18 totes.
Langmesser (10 rushes for 51 yards) and Mason (24 yards on four totes) supplied Capac’s best rushing totals. The remaining four Chief totes netted a combined 23-yard gain.
Hurley (two solos and one assist) registered Capac’s highest tackle output that evening. Trenton Tice, Hurley, Phillips and Mason (two solos each) supported their performance.
