The Terriers traveled to Ekalaka last Friday to take on the Bulldogs. At game time there was about 3 inches of snow on the field and it was still falling — a fun time for our starters who came out looking sharp, putting up 40 points in the first quarter. This allowed for some of the younger players to get some good playing time. The final score was 59 to 6.
The Terriers started with their spread offense and were able to score quickly. Scoreing was as follows: Kyle Lassle passing TD 3, rushing TD 1, interception TD 1 passing extra points 2; Lane Stickel receiving TD 3, interception TD 1, extra point receptions 1: Trevin Schroeber receiving TD 2, fumble recoveries for TD 2, extra point receptions 1; Justin Kinn passing TD 1; Tyler Sackman rushing extra point 1.
The defense played very well, four defensive scores helped to put the game away fast. The new defensive set that we broke in last week is seeming to pay off. The starters came out and played solid defense from play one, which allowed them to rest for most of the game. Defensive stats looked like this: Austin Kountz 11 tackles, 1 sack; Connor Self 7 tackles, 1 fumble recovery; Dylan McCulley 6 tackles; Justin Kinn 6 tackles; Trevin Schroeber 5 tackles, 2 fumble recoveries; Jordan Lassle 5 tackles; Zak Gierke 5 tackles; Kyle Lassle 4 tackles, 1 interception; Tyler Sackman 2 tackles; Austin Smith 2 tackles; Lane Stickel 1 tackle, 1 interception.
It is great to be 4-1. The Terriers will be working hard to hand the Jordan Mustangs a loss Friday, Oct. 11.
