Adams Central Downs Minden in Season Opener

A rare Thursday night contest was the season opener for the Minden football team as top ten and highly regarded Adams Central downed the Whippets 28-7 at Kuper Field on August 25. 

Both team’s defenses bent but didn’t break in the opening quarter. Seth Hauserman stopped the Patriots’ initial drive with an interception in the end zone for a touchback. 

Minden advanced the ball to the AC 13 before giving it up on downs at the 18. Then, on the Patriots’ first play, they struck for an 82-yard score off a short pass and long run. The conversion kick was good and with eight seconds remaining in the first period AC was up 7-0.
