No. 3 Warriors rough up North White

West Central trounces Tri-County.

WINAMAC — The Class A No. 3-ranked Winamac Warriors were able to showcase their entire arsenal of weapons early and often on Friday night against North White at Roudebush Stadium.

And after just four plays from scrimmage the Warriors’ offense scored three touchdowns and the rout was on.

Winamac rolled to a 56-0 win over North White to improve to 3-0 and 2-0 in Midwest Conference play.

“We thought it was going to be a much more physical game. We didn’t feel like we would dominate the way that we did,” Winamac coach Tim Roth said. “They scored 90-some points in their first two games. Even though the competition is weaker you’ve got to do something right to score 90 points.”

The Vikings (2-1, 1-1) were coming off a 40-0 win over Tri-County, but they soon found out on Friday this was one was going to have a much different outcome.

After three straight offsides penalties on North White to start the game, Levi Schultz took a handoff on the second play from scrimmage and darted 57 yards for a touchdown just over a minute in.

Linebacker Mitch Reed then came up with an interception, and on the next play J.T. Garnett caught a pass behind the line of scrimmage and then lofted a perfect pass down the right sideline for quarterback Parker Fox for a 32-yard TD pass.

Reed then recovered a North White fumble, and Tyler Katschke took a handoff up the middle for a 15-yard TD run on the next play to make it 21-0 on Winamac’s fourth offensive play of the game with 6:58 left in the first quarter.

Katschke then recorded a sack on defense which led to a punt, and three plays later Fox found Keegan Kasten open in the end zone for a 13-yard TD pass to make it 28-0 with 3:33 left in the first quarter.

Katschke had a 43-yard TD run in the second quarter and the Warriors took a 35-0 lead into halftime.

Katschke opened the scoring in the third quarter with a 56-yard TD run. Schultz had a 43-yard punt return for a score. Backup fullback Andrew Risner capped off the scoring with a 7-yard TD run in the third quarter.

“We dominated the line on both sides of the ball,” Roth said. “They’ve got some skill kids but that doesn’t do you any good when you can’t protect them.

“All three of our linebackers [Reed, Katschke and Kasten]played extremely well. They had to double team our defensive tackles [Dalton] Button and [Quest] Fritz, and our defensive ends were flying all over the field. That left our three linebackers with open space to run around and they were all making plays.”

Katschke finished with 183 yards rushing and three TDs on just nine carries to lead the Warriors, as five different players found paydirt. Zach Markley was 8 for 8 on extra points for the second game this season.

“We were able to incorporate more kids,” Roth said. “Kasten was healthy again. He tweeked his hamstring last week and only played on defense. He was back on the offensive side. His blocking helps so much. Keegan played well on both sides of the ball. Parker didn’t have a great night but he did what he had to do. He’s going to get better and better.”

Winamac travels to South Newton next week.

W. Central 60, Tri-County 8

The No. 5-ranked Trojans jumped out to a 40-8 lead at halftime and coasted to a win in Wolcott.

West Central (3-0, 2-0) rolled up 668 yards of offense including 544 on the ground.

Hunter Holliday had 169 yards rushing and a TD. Parker Fritz had 119 yards rushing and three TDs. Felciano Villareal had 92 yards rushing and two TDs. Lucas Owens added 58 yards on the ground and a TD. Austin Davis had a 1-yard TD run in the first quarter.

Holliday was 7-of-12 passing for 124 yards, and he had a 15-yard TD pass to Villareal. Cody Denton was the leading receiver with two catches for 66 yards.

Trenton Kyburz led the Cavliers (0-3, 0-2) with 54 yards rushing on 11 attempts. Brenden Kidd added 41 yards on five carries. Justice Blake had 32 yards rushing and was 5-of-12 passing for 66 yards. He had a 23-yard TD pass to Kidd late in the second quarter.
