 Sierra Lutheran football is hanging tough even with a smaller roster this season.
The Falcons compete at the 8-man level and fell to Loyalton, 62-26, Saturday on the road.
It was the Max Thomas-to-Flynn Scheibe connection early and often for Sierra Lutheran. On the first drive of the contest, Scheibe hauled in an 80-yard touchdown reception before Alan Morales added the two-point try.
Loyalton took the lead, scoring on its next two drives before the Falcons got back in the points column.
To start the second quarter, Scheibe bobbled the kickoff before going 99 yards to the end zone to give the Falcons a 14-12 lead.
Loyalton went on to take a 34-14 lead before Sean Kelleher grabbed an interception for Sierra Lutheran.
Thomas hit Scheibe for a 30-yard score to cut the deficit to two scores. Scheibe was on the receiving end of the Falcons’ final touchdown, snagging a 45-yard touchdown pass.
Hayden Erven’s fumble recovery set up Sierra Lutheran’s final score of the contest.
