CAPAC — Capac absorbed a 48-8 loss to visiting Kingston in a North Central Thumb League Stars Division varsity football game last Friday night.
With the outcome, Kingston goes to 6-1 and 5-1. Capac slips to 2-5 and 1-5.
“We played tough with Kingston through most of the half,” Capac Coach Rob Novy commented. “We scored with three minutes to go in the first half to make it a one score game, but they scored twice before the end of the half,” he noted.
“Kingston is a very good team and will make a run in the playoffs. Our kids played hard and never quit. We had some good performances on defense from Peyton Frankowiak and Alan Uribe-Arce.”
In Friday’s homecoming game, Capac spotted Kingston an 8-0 edge after one quarter was complete.
Quarter two saw Kingston collect 20 points and Capac manage none, staking the former to a 28-8 advantage at the half.
When the action resumed, Kingston struck with a 14-0 third quarter edge. That increased their cushion to 42-8 with 36 minutes gone.
Kingston then outscored Capac 6-0 the rest of the way, closing out a 48-8 win.
Capac generated their eight-point output aided by a Carlos Uribe-Arce five-yard touchdown run (followed by a PAT pass from Carlos Uribe-Arce to Nolan Maday).
For the evening, Carlos Uribe-Arce was four of seven for 41 yards as Capac’s quarterback. He threw no interceptions en route to those numbers.
His successful throws went to two different targets. Their ranks consisted of Maday (three catches for 23 yards) and Sam Schneider (one reception for 18 yards).
The Capac ground attack managed 64 yards on 24 totes.
Individually, Frankowiak (eight rushes for 35 yards) and Schneider (nine rushes for 16 yards) led Capac. Carlos Uribe-Arce (seven rushes for 13 yards) supported their performances.
Alan Uribe-Arce (five solos and two assists) and Schneider (four solos and two assists) provided Capac’s highest tackle outputs. They were backed by Frankowiak (five solos), Wyatt Hurley (four solos and one assist) and Carlos Uribe-Arce (four solos).
The Capac defense registered one takeaway. James Meadows (a fumble recovery) provided that.
Capac returns to action this Friday when they travel to Brown City for a NCTL Stars Division matchup. That encounter is scheduled for 7 p.m.
