Eagles run to a 70-6 win at Cedar Bluffs………..

The Allen Eagle football team opened the 2018 on the road at Cedar Bluffs.

The Eagles ran to the victory, amassing 445 yards on the ground, while only gaining 3 by air.  The rushing attack on a hot, humid night, took its’ toll on the Wildcat defense.

 

The Eagles scored twice in the opening frame.  Kyle Smith capped off the Eagles’ first drive with a 5 yard run.  The PAT failed.  Smith again broke loose on a 55 yard run before the period’s end.  Cedar Bluffs responded with a 30 yard touchdown pass to end the period at 12-6.  That would be the last time the Wildcats found any freedom or for the most part any Eagle territory.

 

Kobe Kumm added two second period touchdown runs, sandwiching a third run by Kyle Smith.  Kumm took the ball over from 10 and 19, while Smith went 42.  Lukas Oswald hit Devin Twohig for the PAT following Kumm’s second run to push the Eagles to a 32-6 halftime lead.

 

The Eagles tacked on three more scores in the third.  On the first possession, Smith chugged 45 yards.  Moments later, Brogan Jones intercepted a Wildcat pass, returning it 36 yards for a score.  Kumm added the PAT and all of a sudden it was 46-6.

 

Anthony Isom found the end zone on the Eagles next possession, and Lukas Oswald added the PAT run ending the third period scoring and a 54-6 lead.

 

Isom hit pay dirt early in the fourth period from 3 yards out.  Kumm added the PAT for a 62-6 lead.  Reed Hingst added the final score on a 1 yard run.  Gabe Reinert added the PAT run.

 

Offensively, Smith led the rushing board with 227 yards on 15 carries and four touchdowns.  Kobe Kumm added 75 on 12 carries and two scores, Anthony Isom had 9 carries for 54 yards and two scores.

 

Defensively, Brogan Jones wrapped up 12 ball carries.  He also scored on an interception return.  Devin Twohig and Isaac Verzani had 8 and 7 tackles respectively to bolster the cause.

 

The Eagles have a bye week Friday, August 31, and return to action at Allen on September 7th vs Emerson-Hubbard at 7:00 p.m.

 

COACHES COMMENTS:

 

We looked lethargic coming out of the blocks, but when we started handling the ball, and playing forward better, we took off.  I was pleased with the energy we played with on a very hot and humid night.

The offense was its’ worst enemy in the first half with two turnovers and some errant snaps.  We can clean that up.  The defense played fairly well and had hats at the ball.

We knew that we would have mistakes, and we did.  The team will work on fixing things we did not do as well as we should and be better at them next game out.

Congratulations team.
