When it came to crunch time, Fremont made a few more plays than Lincoln North Star on Fridays.
The result was Fremont’s 28-7 win at the Beechner Athletic Complex, and the Tigers moved to 5-1 that season.
Midfielder Fremont Carter Sintek threw four touchdown passes – two of which came in the third down – while North Star struggled to maintain drive.
The problem started early for the Navigators. They came up empty on field-goal attempts after an 11-play drive, and Fremont responded with a 12-play drive that ended with a 16-yard touchdown pass from Sintek to Dawson Glause in the third down. Sintek’s second score fell to Drew Sellon from 27 yards.
It was the junior’s second consecutive four touchdowns.
“We set the run game, which opens the pass,” said Sintek. “I think our line worked really well tonight.”
“They brought Cover-2, which we haven’t seen much this year,” he added. “We had to change a few routes, and we did very well too.”
North Star (3-4) had a back-to-back drive in the Fremont area before half-time and failed to score in the first two quarters.
Fremont’s Mark Mendoza blocked North Star’s shot early in the third quarter to prepare his team for good ground position, and Sintek hit Tyler Downey for a short pass that put the Tigers up 21-0.
