It was Senior Night at Indian Hills home football game against Tenafly and all senior football players, cheerleaders and band members were honored at different points of the evening.

And while the team played hard, they could not overcome a Tenafly team that, at the start, outnumbered us just in players alone. In addition to Tenafly being well staffed on both sides of the ball, the Braves had to overcome some horrendous calls and non-calls by the referee team.

Some of the missed calls were so obvious we could observe them 20 yards behind the end zone as we watched the Braves give it all they had in this game. The Indian Hills fans were as crazed about the calls as we were with comments from the stands ranging from – “You are literally standing right there Ref” to “Pull your mask down, you’ll see better.”

In the end Tenafly won the game 41-0, but that did not take away from the festive atmosphere of the Senior Night game.

Good Luck to all the seniors for the rest of the season! The members of the Oakland Volunteer Fire Department are proud of you.
