Saturday was a tough day for the Washington football squad.

The Blue Jays (2-3, 0-2) held a halftime lead, but could never pull away, suffering a 28-21 GAC Central loss at Ft. Zumwalt South.

“Every time we got something decent going, we ran into an issue,” said Washington Head Coach Zach Schneider. “Kyle (Summers) ran the ball well and our line did a decent job of blocking, but we didn’t get much production otherwise. We tried to do different things, but couldn’t get anything going consistently.”

Ft. Zumwalt South (1-4, 1-1) scored three touchdowns in the final 12:15 of the game to pick up its first victory of the season.

“We didn’t do a good enough job getting their offense off the field in the second half,” Schneider said. “Hat’s off to them. They played hard. The bottom line is they just made more plays than we did.”


Washington accumulated 405 yards, 298 rushing and 107 passing.

It was another big day for Kyle Summers, who carried the ball 23 times for 235 yards and scored one touchdown. He also had a 12-yard reception.

Summers has rushed for 1,095 yards through the first five games of the season.

“Kyle is having a heck of a year,” Schneider said. “Other than his 68 yards against Timberland, he’s had four special games.”

Quarterback Isaac Lippert was 8-21 passing for 105 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. He carried the ball 12 times for 22 yards and one touchdown.

Christian Hardesty was 1-1 passing for two yards.

Adam Kleekamp, a freshman, also saw time at quarterback. He rushed for 17 yards on four carries.

Seth Bollmann finished with four receptions for 46 yards and carried the ball twice for six yards.

Austin Finder had two catches for 35 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 16 yards on two attempts.

Calvin Blaylock (12 yards) and Izeck Elbert (two yards) both had one catch.

Defensively, Alex Schull paced the Blue Jays with 11 solo tackles and one assist.

Jacob Brinker added eight solos, one assist and one fumble recovery. Nick Cunningham and Jacob Maerli both registered eight solos. Michael Wadlow had seven solos and two assists. DJ Quaethem had seven solos.

FZS quarterback Dillon Bowman was 14-19 passing for 174 yards and two touchdowns. He also carried the ball 23 times for 172 yards and two touchdowns.

Game Summary

Washington struck first when Summers raced 19 yards for a touchdown to make the score 7-0 with 3:56 remaining in the opening quarter.

FZS tied the game with 7:28 left in the second quarter when Bowman tossed a 17-yard touchdown pass to Gerald McBurrows to make the score 7-7.

Following a 78-yard run by Summers to the South two-yard line, the Blue Jays took a 14-7 advantage on a two-yard touchdown run by Lippert with 1:00 left in the second quarter.

Washington took a 14-7 lead into halftime.

“We had a chance right before half to score and make it a 21-7 lead, but couldn’t punch it in,” Schneider said. “We had our opportunities on both sides of the ball, but didn’t make enough plays.”

South tied the game 14-14 with 15 seconds left in the third quarter on a 40-yard touchdown pass from Bowman to Tyler Nolle.

The Bulldogs took their first lead of the game, 21-14, when Bowman had a six-yard touchdown run with 9:56 remaining in the fourth quarter.

The Blue Jays pulled even, 21-21, with 6:10 left when Lippert tossed a six-yard touchdown pass to Austin Finder.

South got the ball and capped a drive on a 12-yard touchdown run by Bowman to make the score 28-21 with 2:51 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Vianney Preview

Washington returns home to play Vianney Friday at 7 p.m.

The Golden Griffins are coached by Paul Day, former Owensville and Ft. Zumwalt West head coach.

Vianney (3-2) lost last week at CBC, 27-7. They also have lost to DeSmet. Wins have come over Howell North, Jackson and SLUH.

“Our next three games are tough,” Schneider said. “If we play at a high level, the way we’re capable of playing, we can compete and have a chance to win.”

The game will feature two of the top running backs in the Class 5 ranks in Washington’s Summers and Vianney’s Markel Smith.

Against CBC, Smith rushed for 129 yards on 35 carries. He’s rushed for 990 yards on the season.
