    Nothing was going right for the Indians on Sept. 13 as they lost 6-53 against the Greyhounds in Sleepy Eye.
     
    New Ulm got an early lead in the first quarter after a 54 yard touchdown run put the Greyhounds up 7-0. It was looking to be a quick 14-0 lead after Sleepy Eye quarterback Austin Fischer threw an interception in the next drive, but the Indians defense was able to hold Cathedral back despite its good field position.
     
    The 14-0 lead came in the Greyhounds next possession however, after Sleepy Eye’s defense allowed even more running yards.
     
    Sleepy Eye Coach Cory Haala said his team did a good job of holding its own in the first quarter, but needs to work on keeping its momentum up.
     
    “Some how we need to get out the second quarter hole, we seem to come out with some intensity in the first quarter and hold our own,” Haala said. “We have to find ways to stop those tough momentum swings.”
     
    This time the Indians got into a 41-0 hole at half time, after they allowed New Ulm to score four more touchdowns in the second quarter alone. Three of the four were rushing touchdowns.
     
    Sleepy Eye finally put points on the scoreboard after junior Matt Berkner ran 39 yards for a touchdown to start the third quarter. Along with the touchdown, Berkner had 11 carries for 101 yards and three catches for 28 yards to lead the Indians in offense. Berkner also recorded five solo tackles and seven tackle assists on defense.
     
    Although Sleepy Eye was on the board, the Indians weren’t able to stop the Greyhounds from scoring even more, as two more touchdown runs were made and Cathedral ended with 471 team rushing yards on the night.
     
    Fischer made three completions for 28 yards for Sleepy Eye’s passing game. For the defense, Kennedy Capacia had three solo tackles and seven assists, while Juan Montemayor had three solos and six assists. Kyle Kjelshus had four solos and four assists for the Indians defense as well.
