Highlights:  Lover tossed a touchdown pass in the second quarter of his first varsity start and Schumacher ran in a short TD in the fourth quarter, but Sanborn’s explosive passing game lifted the Indians to victory.

Coach’s quote:  “Perennially, an opening game is often rife with mistakes, and today was no exception.  Despite some explosive offensive play, and a solid goal line stand, we were unable to eclipse an earlier deficit.  With a young team, I’ve no doubt they will learn from this, and progress as the autumn continues.” – Bow’s Paul Cohen

Records: Sanborn 1-0; Bow 0-1
