Comets again out of sync in loss to North White

FULTON — Despite the absence of head coach Jim Davis, the North White Vikings arrived in Fulton ready to end a two-game losing streak to the Caston Comets.

Last year the Comets stole an improbable 17-16 win in Monon. This year the result was quite different as the Vikings rolled to a 34-12 win, their first win at Caston since a 2001 sectional game. Coach Davis missed the game due to illness.

After dropping senior Quentin Douglass for a safety, the Vikings (4-2, 3-2 Midwest Conference) extended their lead to 8-0 when sophomore quarterback Luke Diener scored from 1 yard out in the first.

Junior Dustin Offenberger picked off Diener at the Comet 10, and returned it to the 37. In a bizarre play, junior Jake Kingery scooped up a lateraled fumble behind the line and motored to the Viking 5. Freshman Brandon Piotrowski scored from there, and Caston (1-5, 1-3) appeared to be in the game.

But two more North White scores by Diener and Caleb Hendress gave the Vikings a 22-6 lead at the 4:58 mark of the second.

Brayton Jellison picked off Diener, setting up a 26-yard touchdown pass to Kingery from Douglass.

The Vikings responded with a 44-yard touchdown pass to Hendress just before half.

Outside of a 20-yard score by Viking Jake Russell, the second half of this game was relatively uneventful. With a solid lead the North White defense blitzed freely and harrassed Douglass behind the line of scrimmage. The Comet offense was forced to punt four times in the half and their other two drives ended with a turnover on downs and a lost fumble, respectively.

The Comets looked puzzled and out of sync the entire game.
