The Mississinewa Indians football team kicked off the 2021 football season last night against a tough opponent in Pendleton Heights. The Indians would receive the football first, on the ensuing drive a Carson Campbell fumble would allow Pendleton Heights to take over the ball in excellent field position. The Arabians would march down the field and score on a Luke Candiano 1 yard rushing touchdown. At the end of One quarter Pendleton Heights led Mississinewa 7-0. In the Second quarter a couple of huge plays defensively forced a turnover on downs, that led to a 79 yard rushing touchdown for Senior Carson Campbell which tied the game at 7-7. Late in the Second quarter Mississinewa was able to march back down the field with an opportunity to score after Carson Campbell rushed the ball 13 yards down to the Arabian 1 yard line, a penalty for a block in the back called that back. At halftime the game was tied 7-7. The Third quarter turned into a 53 minute quarter. A quarter that saw the Indians starting quarterback Landry Rock and starting running back Carson Campbell leave the game with injuries. That brought In Sophomore quarterback Nolan Quaderer and Junior tailback Hayden Nelson. The Arabians would execute on the injuries scoring a touchdown taking a 14-7 lead at the end of Three quarters. In the Fourth quarter Carson Campbell would return to the field, Quaderer connected on a pass to the flat with Campbell which led to a 28 yard gain and put the Indians in scoring position. Hayden Nelson would score a touchdown Two plays later. A tied game with Two minutes left in the ball game the Indians had the ball marching down the field, the Fifth Indian turnover turned into the dagger for the Indians. A Thirteen yard pass from Luke Candiano to Will Kaster with 19.8 seconds remaining would eventually hand Mississinewa the loss falling 21-14. The Indians were banged up leaving Pendleton Heights. “We need to check on Landry and see what’s going on their, we just need to make sure we prepare our bodies for games” said head coach Kyle Buresh. There is no doubt Mississinewa had to battle adversity and did they ever by giving the Arabians all they wanted. “I loved our fight and I loved our guys heart, they didn’t stop competing no matter what was going on now I just need to do a better job of preparing them” said Buresh Friday night. Despite Landry Rock going out in the Third quarter it was Sophomore wide receiver Nolan Quaderer called upon for the quarterback duties. “Nolan is a poised individual, he’s a phenomenal kid I didn’t put him in the best situation this week because he didn’t get any reps at quarterback because he was actually rotating in at receiver. Thats on me because I didn’t prepare him well he’s only going to get better and better from here he works hard at it and I’m excited for his future” said Buresh. The Indians return to action next Friday as they host Marion at 7pm.
