Rated Eagles shut out Pirates

Tuesday, October 23, 2007

LAWTON - The undefeated and seventh-ranked Lawton-Bronson Eagles flexed their muscle here on Oct. 12 with a 28-point first half, on the way to a decisive 38-0 Class A, District 1 victory over Galva-Holstein.

The 7-0 Eagles scored two touchdowns in the first quarter, two more in the second, and a TD and field goal in the third to finish out the game’s scoring, while the L-B defense shut out the 4-3 Pirates.

Tanner Gebers led the G-H rushing attack with 16 carries for 77 yards. Pirate quarterback John Forristal completed 3-11 passes for 10 yards, and Gebers was 0-1 passing. Marc Andresen, Mark Cronin, and Adam Parker each had a reception for the Pirates.

L-B notched 13 first downs, to five by G-H, and rushed the ball 39 times for 292 yards. G-H rushed 27 times for 101 yards. L-B was 2-6 passing for 69 yards.

Ben Andresen led the G-H defense with nine tackles, while Gebers had eight, Mark Cronin six, and Derek Hadden four.

“Lawton-Bronson has a very big, fast, physical football team,” said first-year G-H coach Butch Faulkenberry. “They were able to control our line of scrimmage and play a very tough man coverage scheme.

“Kyle Yearous kicked very well for us, and Tanner Gebers and Ben Andresen played very well, also. Tayor Nees was put in on defense in the second half and did a good job of slowing up their offensive line push.”

The Pirates host neighborhood rival River Valley (1-6) on Oct. 19 in Holstein.
