On Saturday, October 13, the boys JV and Varsity football teams played their last 2018 home game at Dubuque Senior High School. The rainy weather left Coach Korte Field in poor conditions, so the team opted to play somewhere else. Galena football took on Dalzell Field playing against Amboy. Instead of the field lights lighting up the players, the sun was out. The Pirates started earlier on in the day with JV at Noon and Varsity at 2 p.m.  

Senior Conner Einsweiler said, “We were all a little bummed that we weren’t able to play our last home game at Coach Korte Field, but it was a neat experience to play at Senior. Playing on Saturday kind of gave us that playoff feeling.”

The final score of the Varsity game was Amboy with 35 points and Galena with 14. Henry Anderson completed nine passes out of 29 attempts for 101 yards and a touchdown. Peyton Bauer led the Pirates for rushing with 83 yards on 23 carries. Einsweiler also led the team for receptions with five catches for 38 yards and one touchdown. Damian Stephanopoulos followed with three catches for 51 yards.

“Playing at the Senior field was a surreal experience,” said David Garcia ‘20. “The field looked like we were playing in a college stadium and that was pretty cool. I love our field but it’s nice to change it up a bit.”

Congratulations to the football team on their season and good luck to the Lady Pirates this week with volleyball regionals!
