Wildcats break recent skid, dominate Boyer Valley 50-6

After falling in three back-to-back-to-back games the Wildcats of Glidden-Ralston broke back into the win column with a 50-6 victory over Boyer Valley Friday night.

From the first drive of the game, when the Wildcats promptly drove down the field and scored, until the final drive of the contest, Glidden-Ralston never lost control of Friday’s game.

Boyer Valley, a team that likes to use their passing game to win games, was limited to just 101 yards through the air in the game. Through the ground the front line of the Wildcats stopped Boyer Valley for just 70 rushing yards.

No offensive or defensive stats were available at press time for the Wildcats.

Miscues keep Ar-We-Va from upset victory over Newell-Fonda

Every game there are a few plays that teams and players want back. On Friday night, a couple of plays in the end of the first half kept Ar-We-Va’s offense was rolling onto a win over Newell-Fonda.

Instead it was the Mustangs that left Westside with a 32-8 victory.

“We gave them a short field due to special teams on one of their scores, and they also scored a defensive touchdown,” said Ar-We-Va head coach, Chris Petersen. “Outside of that, I thought we played really good defense. We were able to get pressure and did a nice job of slowing down their run game. Will Ragaller played an outstanding game on defense and was all over the field. Offensively, we struggled. We had the ball inside of their 10 twice and weren’t able to score, and we had a touchdown called back due to a penalty. If we can capitalize on a couple of those, it is a much different ball game.”

Newell-Fonda led 20-2 at halftime and scored their final 14 points in the third.

Cooper Kock finished the game 5-22 with 74 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.

Damon Ehlers had 15 carriers for 54 yards. Ragaller had six carries for 22 yards and four catches for 21 yards. Dalton Ehlers caught the touchdown from 53 yards out.
