Wildcats routed by Brady near season’s end
By LaDonna Swedberg
The Wallace Wildcats entered this week’s game with determination as they looked to redeem themselves from last week’s loss. The Brady Eagles shot down their fire and hopes for a victory as the Wildcats fell and fell hard to the Eagles 56 to 0.
The Eagle offense was the first to take the field and the Wildcat defense looked like they could challenge the Eagles. Wallace had them at a fourth and two when an off sides penalty gave Brady a first down.
The next play Tyler Kleinow broke through the Wildcat defense for a 27-yard touchdown run. A successful two-point conversion put the Eagles up 8–0 early in the first quarter.
The Wildcat offense really struggled with the big Brady defense and finding a way to gain yards was a difficult task the entire game. Wallace went three and out on their first possession so Brady once again had the ball.
The Wildcat defense was able to stop the Eagles on their second possession but after that Brady took off. With 4:17 left in the quarter, Sawyer Burke scored the Eagle’s second touchdown. Less than two minutes later, the Eagles block Taylor Doell’s punt to score their third touchdown and by the end of the quarter the Eagles led the game with a score of 22–0.
The second quarter proved to be just as tough for the Wildcats. Brady ran on the legs of Kleinow as he scored on a 42-yard run, a 20-yard run and a 63-yard run. The Eagles went into halftime with a 42–0 lead.
The Wildcats were hoping to get things turned around in the second half but Brady had other ideas and the second half went much the same as the first. With a continuous clock, it was a short half. Kleinow and Burke each scored a touchdown in the third quarter making the score 56–0.
Eustis-Farnam comes to town on Thursday, Oct. 20 (tonight) for the final regular season game. The early kickoff is scheduled for 5:30.
