HOBART | For three quarters, it could have been anybody’s game.

A pair of fourth-quarter miscues proved deadly for Hobart Friday night as the Brickies fell 42-28 in an upset bid against South Bend St. Joseph.

After a 15-yard sack forced the Brickies into fourth-and-long in the waning minutes of the second half. A blocked punt gave St. Joe what was at the time the best field position of the night, taking over on the Hobart 28 with the score tied 28-28.

Just six plays later, Indians quarterback Mathew Moncerez dived into the end zone from the one to put St. Joe up 35-28. Hobart fumbled the ensuing kickoff, and the Indians recovered the football, taking over on the 22.

Three plays later, Taj Smith cruised in from 11 yards out to upend Hobart's upset bid.

“I’m disappointed in the outcome, obviously, but I’ve been proud of our boys all year long. And I’m just proud of this senior group,” emotional Hobart head coach Ryan Turley said. “It hurts. I feel bad for the seniors.

"Only one team’s happy at the end of the season. These are the tough ones because you see a group of seniors that is graduating from the program, but they’ll always be a part of Brickie pride.”

Hobart lead 21-7 after the first quarter, and the score was tied 21-21 at halftime and 28-28 after the third quarter. The fourth-quarter miscues proved too much to overcome.

“We had control of the game early on,” Turley said. “We just had some bad breaks at some bad points, and St. Joe capitalized. What can you say? They finished on top.”

Hobart quarterback Andrew Barras was 9-for-18 for 227 yards and two touchdowns in the loss, hitting Drey Devereaux and Nicholas Bokun. Noah Smith ran for 90 yards and a touchdown. Zach Satterfield also ran for a touchdown.
