Week 8 | Orangeville vs East Dubuque
On a sloppy night in Orangeville, the Broncos would host the East Dubuque Warriors in an NUIC crossover game, a rematch from the year before. Orangeville was in search of their 5th win to become playoff eligible, while the Warriors tried to play spoiler.
This game became a defensive slugfest, as neither team could get anything going offensively for the entire game, as a tie game of 0-0 at the half stood through the second half as well forcing this game into overtime.
East Dubuque would get the ball first, and began driving towards the end zone. It would be Jackson Bowman who found some ground through the mud for a 5 yard TD run to put East Dubuque up 6-0. A failed extra point attempt left the door open for the Broncos.
Orangeville would get the ball and begin their drive moving carefully down the field. Then QB Carter Kleckler found Caden Getz on a 5 yard TD pass to tie the game back up at 6. However, Orangeville called out the kick team for a PAT attempt, and the kick was good, giving the Broncos a 7-6 victory to secure that 5th win and playoff eligibility.
Orangeville (5-3) vs Stockton (6-2) | East Dubuque (2-6) @ West Carroll (5-3)
