Two of the top players in the GAC Central were on display during Washington’s homecoming football game against Holt.

In the end, Darren Love and Holt got the better of Kyle Summers and Washington last Friday at Scanlan Stadium, 37-28.

In the conference opener for both teams, Holt (1-3, 1-0) gained its first win of the season by outscoring the Blue Jays, 16-0, in the second half.

“The big thing in the second half was they weren’t going to let Kyle Summers beat them. They sent eight or nine guys at Kyle, which was a big risk, but it worked out for them,” said Washington Head Coach Zach Schneider. “We didn’t have anyone else step up. We tried several different things that didn’t work out. We’re probably going to see more of that.”

It was another big game for Summers, particularly in the first half.

Summers carried the ball 30 times for 242 yards and scored two touchdowns. He had 208 yards on 24 carries and two scores in the first half alone.

Love was a thorn in Washington’s side all night, scoring three touchdowns and grabbing two interceptions. One of his touchdowns came on a 90-yard punt return, which began the Indians’ second-half rally.

“The punt return was the turning point in the game. It was fantastic punt by Kyle. It was inside three feet from the sideline near the nine-yard line,” Schneider said. “We had great coverage. Three of our guys were there, but Love made them miss. He’s a special player and an elite athlete. A lot of our missed tackles on the night were because of him.”


Washington (2-2, 0-1) accumulated 402 yards, 289 rushing and 113 passing.

Summers has rushed for over 200 yards in three of the Blue Jays’ four games and has 860 yards on the season. He also had three catches for 14 yards and completed a pass for 24 yards against Holt.

“Our line did a tremendous job in the first half,” Schneider said. “In the second half, they had more people around the ball, more than we could block.”

Seth Bollmann also has emerged as a major threat for Washington. He finished the contest with eight catches for 78 yards and one touchdown and also had two carries for 47 yards and a score, giving him two for the game.

Isaac Lippert started and was 12-17 passing for 65 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.

Christian Hardesty was 3-5 passing for 24 yards.

Austin Finder had five receptions for 21 yards and twice scored on two-point conversions.

“We take pride in not being a one-dimensional offense, so we have to work in getting other people involved,” Schneider said. “We need to make an effort to give Seth more touches and execute those plays.”

Defensively, Jacob Maerli paced the Blue Jays with eight solo tackles and one assist. Alex Schull added six solos and recovered a fumble.

Bollmann also had six solos. DJ Quaethem finished with five solos, one assist, one interception and one fumble recovery. Michael Wadlow, Jacob Brinker and Nick Cunningham each had five solos. Wadlow also had an interception.

“We did some good things defensively, like forcing turnovers. At the end of the night, they still scored nine more points than we did,” Schneider said. “We need to be more consistent with our tackling.”

For Holt, Love had seven receptions for 104 yards and two touchdowns. He carried the ball six times for 50 yards.

Jake Thompson rushed for 121 yards on 17 attempts and scored one touchdown. He also had a touchdown reception.

Emilio Monsivais was 12-17 passing for 176 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions.

Game Summary

Summers had touchdown runs of 18 yards and 17 yards in the first quarter for the Blue Jays.

Holt scored on a pair of touchdown passes from Monsivais to Thompson for 34 yards and to Love for 55 yards.

The score was tied 14-14 after one period.

In the second quarter, Bollmann had a 32-yard touchdown run to give the Blue Jays a 20-14 advantage.

The Indians came back on a 16-yard touchdown run by Thompson to grab a 21-20 lead.

With 41 seconds to play in the second quarter, Lippert tossed a 12-yard touchdown pass to Bollmann.

Finder then scored his second two-point conversion to give the Blue Jays a 28-21 halftime lead.

Holt pulled to within 28-27 with 7:13 left in the third quarter when Love returned a punt 90 yards for a touchdown.

Love and the Indians struck again on a 25-yard touchdown reception with 5:01 left in the third quarter, giving the Indians the lead for good, 34-28.

Holt made it a two-possession game with a field goal in the fourth quarter.

Ft. Zumwalt South Preview

Washington returns to action Saturday, Sept. 28, at Ft. Zumwalt South at 1 p.m.

The Bulldogs (0-4, 0-1) lost last Saturday to Ft. Zumwalt North, 55-19. They also have lost to Troy 48-20, Howell Central 43-0 and Howell North, 48-20.

“They have good size up front and have some skill players,” Schneider said of South. “I’m sure they’ll send everyone at Kyle and make someone else beat them. We still have to give Kyle the ball, but we also have to get other players involved and have them make plays. We need to keep them in front of us defensively and keep progressing offensively.”
