Ben Triplett, No. 34, runs a sweep to gain yardage for the Irish against Holdingford. No. 80 is Alex Toedter.

The Irish played hard Friday, Sept. 23, at Holdingford, but couldn’t overcome costly penalties and turnovers and fell 26-22 to Mid State Sub 1 foe, the Holdingford Huskers.
Friday was the first loss for the Irish in an otherwise flawless season.
Holdingford struck first on its home field by completing a six-yard catch in the end zone. The extra kick failed.
The Irish recovered with a 14-yard run by Hunter Malachek and an Andy Mavencamp kick gave them a one-point edge over the Huskers to end the quarter.
Malachek and Alex Toedter scored a touch down apiece to lengthen the Irish lead 22-6, but that is when it began to fall apart for the home team.
Mental errors in the second half led to costly penalties and turnovers.
