Football: Steamers take down Princeton 35-6

PRINCETON, Ill. — It took awhile but the Fulton Steamers finally got their second win of the season, snapping a four-game losing streak.

The Steamers played solid football to beat Princeton 35-6 on Friday, working through some issues in the win to keep their playoff hopes alive. 

“It feels good to get back on the winning side of the football,” Fulton coach Patrick Lower said.

Senior Bryce Holesinger stepped up for the Steamers and had a great night on both sides of the ball, providing a spark early and igniting a fire that never went out for the Steamers.

“Feels great (to win)," he said. "I haven’t felt like that since Week 1, and that’s something we’re hoping to continue because playoffs started today for us.”

The Steamers (2-4) started the scoring when, with less than a minute left in the first quarter, Princeton quarterback Jacob Reinhardt decided to loft a pass across the middle into a mass of Steamers defenders, trying to find his well-covered teammate. Holesinger came down with the interception and ran it in 18 yards for the touchdown.

After the "Pick 6" from Holesinger, the Steamers put the ball in Austin Regenwether’s hands and let him run wild in the second quarter. He rewarded the Steamers' confidence with two touchdowns in the quarter and 81 yards in the first half. He even surprised Steamers fans and the Princeton defense by going out for a pass and getting 40 yards on the completion.

“It’s always nice to switch it up a little,” he said.

On Fulton’s last possession of the half, it had one minute left to march the ball nearly 50 yards down the field and took care of that on one play. Quarterback Ethan Jones hit Holesinger down the right sideline for a 45-yard reception, putting the Steamers on the 2-yard line.
