Wolfpack Defeat Spartans 38 to 8

October 29, 2015 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

ELGIN — On a rainy night in Nebraska, they played a football game at Elgin Field. Final score Wolfpack 38, Boyd County 8.
Just another football game? Hardly.
The Wolfpack, by virtue of the victory, gained the sixth seed in the West Division for the Class D1 State Football Playoffs which begin Thursday.
Rain fell throughout the game, but that didn’t stop the Wolfpack from pounding the ‘rock’ at the Spartans.
EPPJ got on the scoreboard first. They took the opening kickoff and went 65 yards to score in 10 plays, all on the ground. Senior Andrew Fangman’s first carry of the game was a big one as he went 30 yards into Spartans territory. He would then cap off the drive with a three-yard touchdown run on fourth and goal.
The Wolfpack defense then set the tone for the night by forcing the Spartans into a three-and-out.
The Spartans’ showed no signs of life till late in the game when EPPJ Coach Randy Eisenhauer replaced the starters with reserves.
The Wolfpack’s second drive of the game also found paydirt. Blocks from Scott Moser, Miles Schrage and Alois Warner opened up a hole which Fangman skirted through for 23 yards.
After a quarterback keeper by Seth Schumacher gained 12 more yards, Fangman finished off the drive two plays later with a six-yard run up the middle of the Spartans’ defense.
Fangman added another touchdown before halftime on a two-yard run as the Wolfpack led 22 to 0. The Spartans made one last charge towards the endzone. However, the drive was stopped on the Wolfpack’s five-yard line when Kyle Kallhoff teamed up with Fangman to stop quarterback Clay Hansen on fourth down.

NELIGH — Trailing by two touchdowns and outplayed in the first half, Neligh-Oakdale charged back in the second half to claim a 37 to 30 victory over Elgin Public-Pope John.
Down 30 to 21 at the start of the third quarter, the Warriors scored on their first two possessions of the third quarter to take the lead, then kept the Wolfpack out of the endzone to win the game and the district championship.
Penalties and missed scoring opportunities cost the Wolfpack, who saw their record fall to 5-2 with the loss.
“We just couldn’t finish drives,” Coach Randy Eisenhauer said. “We killed ourselves with penalties.”
Just as he did a year ago, junior quarterback Grant White proved to be elusive in the game. On the Warriors’ first drive of the game, White led the team on a 50-yard drive capped with a six-yard touchdown run.
The Wolfpack answered right back on their next possession. Capitalizing on a 32-yard run by Andrew Fangman, EPPJ moved the ball down to the 10-yard line. Quarterback Seth Schumacher scored on a quarterback keeper. Fangman’s two-point conversion gave EPPJ an 8 to 7 lead midway through the opening quarter.
A fumble recovery by Chad Bode gave the Wolfpack great field position which they capitalized on when Fangman scored on an isolation play from 29 yards out.
Alois Warner’s big toe played a prominent role in the Wolfpack’s third touchdown as the Warriors failed to cover a short kickoff, allowing Dylan Behnk to recover the ball. Fangman scored his second touchdown in a span of 25 seconds, this one on a 21-yard run, then added the two-point conversion to give the Wolfpack a 22 to 7 lead.
Having surrendered 22 unanswered points, the Warriors answered back with their passing game as White’s passes found Warrior receivers. He closed out the drive with a 23-yard touchdown strike to Chris Bentley.
