Terriers experience first loss of season against Savage team


  The Terriers traveled to Savage Friday night to take on the Warriors in a battle of unbeatens.

Savage answered right back with a 34 yard pass from Shad Stanford to Matt Trzinski. Talon Mack blocked the extra point attempt helping keep Terry’s 8-6 lead. On Terry’s next possession Jerett Freiboth found Trevor Pisk for a 22-yard touchdown pass and Freiboth’s kick gave Terry a 16-6 lead. 
Savage’s Chris Reynolds scored on a 26-yard run, and again Mack would block the extra point attempt. 
Terry turned the ball over on downs and Savage drove down the field and scored on a 5-yard run by Clayton Eskridge to take a 19-16 lead. 
Terry answered back, retaking the lead 22-19 after a 20-yard touchdown pass from Freiboth to Pisk. 
Savage again answered with a 42-yard run by Reynolds to take a 25-22 lead. Terry drove down the field and scored on a 2-yard run by Luedtke (Freiboth kick) to take a 30-25 lead with just 9 seconds left in the half. 
Reynolds grabbed a 52-yard pass from Stanford to take a 33-30 lead into halftime. 
Terry couldn’t find the end zone in the third quarter, while Savage scored twice to take a 47-30 lead into the fourth quarter. 
Luedtke scored from a yard out to bring Terry within 11 points on the first play of the fourth quarter. 
It was all Savage from then on. 
Savage scored four times in the fourth quarter to put the Terriers away and won the game 74-36. 
Terry was led by Freiboth who had 271 passing yards and 11 tackles. Pisk gathered 212 receiving yards, two touchdown catches from Freiboth, and had 19 tackles. Luedtke had 112 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 29 carries. 
Terry travels to Hysham on Friday to take on the Pirates at 7 p.m. to end the regular season. 
“We played very well in the first half and really couldn’t get anything going offensively in the second half,” THS head football coach Casey Schladweiler said. “Savage is a very good football team in every aspect of the game. Overall, I’m proud of the way we played Friday night.”
