Bluejays defeat Cyclones 57-0

Senior Cole Oehm heads into the secondary in the first half of the district contest on Thursday, October 26, between the Riverside Cyclones and Sabetha Bluejays.

The Bluejay football team was searching to put a pair of wins together to establish a streak when they hosted the 2-6 Riverside Cyclones last Thursday in the final District duel. Both teams had wins over Hiawatha in District play, so this win would be crucial to advance. The Jays dominated in this one, 57-0.

Junior Braeden Cox turns upfield after this catch of a first half pass from quarterback Brandon Brownlee.

Riverside was not allowed a first down in the first quarter on four possessions while the Jays inked points on three scoring drives to jump out to a 22-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. Joe Gruber had the longest scoring run with an 18-yard tote, with Gabe Garber scoring from 10 yards out and Wyatt Beyer from 9 yards away.

Sabetha extended their lead to 35-0 by the intermission on a 5-yard touchdown run by Brandon Brownlee and a 52-yard scamper by Mason Engelken, both in the second frame. The Cyclones were held to just 47 yards of total offense, 1.4 yards per play in the first half, while the Bluejays ground out 248 total yards and average of 8.6 yards per play.

Garber tallied his second touchdown of the night in the third quarter, punching it in from 8 yards out on the Bluejays first drive of the half.

With the mercy rule in affect, the clock was running, and the Jays deployed their reserve players.

Joel Hackney extended his teams lead to 50-0 in the third quarter with a 1-yard scoring strike, and Tristan Edelman capped off Sabetha’s scoring with a 6-yard burst early in the fourth period.

With the 57-0 victory, the Jays finished the regular season 8-1, second in the Big Seven, and runners-up in their District.

“We were pleased with how our kids finished the regular season and earned a berth in the playoffs for the 10th consecutive season,” said Head Coach Garrett Michael. “Our seniors have done a great job of leading our team, of being very unselfish and having a true desire to be the best they can be.”

Results were not available at The Herald’s press time for the Sabetha-Maur Hill Bi-District contest on Tuesday, Oct. 31. The Ravens are 7-2, and have a balanced offensive attack and return many of their starters from a year ago.
