Concord turns turnovers into victory at Elkhart Memorial

Minutemen convert two of their three takeaways into points in moving to 2-0 overall and 1-0 in the Northern Lakes Conference.

ELKHART — Concord converted turnovers into points and Elkhart Memorial did not as the Minutemen bested the Crimson Chargers 29-6 Friday, Aug. 29, in the Northern Lakes Conference football opener for both teams.

Two fumble recoveries by Concord in the first half led indirectly and directly to scores for the Minutemen (2-0, 1-0).

Moments after Zach Wynn was credited with the first of his first two recoveries, Ryan Tepe booted the field goal that put Concord ahead 10-0.

It became 17-0 when Marcus Fragale scooped up a ball and raced 86 yards for a touchdown.

Memorial (0-2, 0-1) produced two interceptions — one each by Geno Peek and Kaleb Summers — and also had a goal-line stand, holding Concord out of the end zone on four plays at the Charger 1.

But the momentum didn't last long enough to numbers on the scoreboard for the host team.

Before and during the game, Memorial fans paid tribute to the memory of Zach Talley, a 15-year-old student who died recently. There was a moment of silence and many students and adults wore orange, Talley’s favorite color.
