Mistakes, turnovers plague Eagles

Almond-Bancroft beat Menominee Indian 41-7 in a nonconference game Thursday afternoon at Menominee Indian High School.

"We killed ourselves," said Menominee Indian coach Chris Clache. "There wasn't anything we weren't expecting."

Menominee Indian had 12 penalties for 135 yards. The team also had a disastrous fourth quarter in which it lost three fumbles - including one on a kick return.

The Eagles also had a turnover in the first half when quarterback Alex Wynos' pass was picked off and returned for a touchdown.

"We had a bad first quarter and a bad fourth quarter," Clache said. "We played solid in the second and third."

Menominee Indian's only touchdown came in the third quarter on a Wynos 1-yard run.

Wynos went 1 of 5 passing for 5 yards and the one interception. He also had 43 yards rushing on eight carries and the touchdown.

Running back Forrest Tourtillott had six carries for 36 yards, and fullback Naeciwat LaTender had four carries for 21 yards.

Tourtillott also completed a 40-yard pass to John Peters.

The loss drops Menominee Indian to 0-2 in the season, with its conference opener Friday at Three Lakes.
