Once again on Saturday the Terry Terrier football team took the field, this time against the Lincoln Lynx.
The two teams met in Stanford to play a nonconference matchup — the Lynx claiming the home field while the Terriers were visitors.
On the offensive side of the ball the Terriers jumped to a 13 point lead by the end of the first quarter. The second quarter brought only one score to the Terriers while the Lynx capitalized on poor kick team coverage to score, then on a pass they hit the end zone again. That left the first half with the Terriers clinging to a 3 point lead, 19 to 16.
The second half is when the Terriers took control of the game, scoring 8 more times to the Lynx’s 2 more scores ending the game with a 38 point lead, 68 to 30.
Scoring for the Terriers: Kyle Lassle 8 TD passes, 1 TD rushing; Lane Stickel 5 TD receiving; Trevin Schroeber 2 TD receiving; Jordan Lassle 1 TD rushing; Tyler Sackman 1 TD receiving; and Zak Gierke 1 TD receiving.
The new defensive set was a great success, holding the Lynx’s scoring down and giving the offense good field position.
The Terriers only allowed two scores — the balance of the Lynx scoring came on special teams.
Tackles went as follows: Lane Stickel 15 tackles, 1 interception; Kyle Lassle 9 tackles; Tyler Sackman 8 tackles, 1 sack, 1 fumble recovery; Connor Self 8 tackles; Jordan Lassle 7 tackles, 1 fumble recovery; Trevin Schroeber 5 tackles, 1 interception; Tryston Seteren 4 tackles; Dylan McCulley 4 tackles; Austin Kountz 3 tackles; and Justin Kinn with 3 tackles.
Once again I am proud of you Terriers, good job. The season is half done and we are improving every week, keep up the hard work.
