Bluejays defeat the Cyclones

Senior tightend David Dyke hauls in this touchdown reception at the close of the first half during the varsity football game versus Riverside on Friday, September 7.

Week two opponent for the Jays was the 0-1 Riverside Cyclones who dropped a loss to Hiawatha in their inaugural contest. Sabetha took command early and snuffed out the Cyclones 55-0.

In their first game, Coach Garrett Michael was complimentary of his team’s ability to put together a complete game, executing in each of its facets. As for the game against Riverside, Coach Michael was again pleased with his team’s execution on offense, defense and special teams.

“We liked how we came out and dominated in all phases of the game,” Coach Michael said.

Due to the recent deluge of rain, last Friday’s game was held at a neutral site for both teams as it was hosted at Highland Community College, whose new artificial turf gave both teams a rare experience.

The Jays racked up 337 total yards in the game against the Cyclones — tallying six touchdowns on offense, including a passing touchdown from quarterback Gabe Garber to tight end David Dyke early in the second quarter. Joseph Gruber returned a punt to the house in the second frame for a special teams score.

And Sabetha’s defense allowed only four first downs, 73 total yards for Riverside — while grabbing two interceptions, and a blocked punt for a touchdown.

The Jays led 14-0 at the end of the first quarter on a 45-yard touchdown by Mason Engelken and a 2-yard scoot by Joel Hackney. Engelken had 100 yards, and Hackney had 62 yards rushing, and each had two scores on the night for their team.

Sabetha led 42-0 at the break after adding four scores in the second quarter with two of those being on the ground, one through the air with Dyke, and Gruber’s punt return for a touchdown.

With another rushing touchdown and a Cauy Rokey recovery of a punt blocked in the end zone in the third period, the Bluejays extended their lead to 55-0.

“We were proud of our focus even with playing in a new environment,” Coach Michael said. “We were able to get a lot of players some experience under the Friday night lights, and they did a good job of executing the game plan.”

Sabetha improves to 2-0 and their next opponent comes in the way of the 2-0 Perry-Lecompton Kaws — who are coming off of a pair of dominating wins, 68-0 over Royal Valley and 46-0 over Holton.
