Warriors rumble past Rebels, move to 4-0

KENTLAND — Winamac’s football team entered Friday’s game at South Newton with a newly minted No. 1-ranking in Class A in this week’s coaches’ poll.

The Warriors showed just why on Friday night, as they blasted South Newton 59-6 on the road. Ranked No. 3 in the AP poll, the Warriors moved to 4-0 and 2-0 in the Midwest Conference.

Tyler Katschke rushed for 104 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries and had an 49-yard touchdown pass to Sean Lynch on a fullback pass.

Quarterback Parker Fox also had 104 yards rushing and two TDs on just six carries. He had an 18-yard TD pass to Keegan Kasten.

Brandon DeGroot had a 25-yard interception return for a score.

Third-string running back Michael O’Donnell added a 4-yard TD run in the fourth quarter.

All-state kicker Zach Markley booted a 50-yard field goal to set a school record. He also connected on all of his extra points and has now hit 26 in a row, also a school record.

Winamac coach Tim Roth said of Markley’s field goal, “It would have been good from 55 or 56 yards. It’s nice to have that weapon.”

Fox added two interceptions on defense to go with DeGroot’s pick.

“Offensively they presented a whole different look to what we had seen. They ran empty [backfield] 97 percent of the time,” Roth said. “I didn’t think there was a rhyme or reason to what they were doing. We dominated the line of scrimmage on both sides.”

The Rebels (1-3, 1-2) put together a 60-yard drive in the second quarter to cut the lead to 28-7. The drive was capped by an 11-yard TD pass from John Dafcik to Skyler Sanders.

Roth said his team missed a couple of chances at interceptions during the drive, but it didn’t take long for the Warriors to respond. After a good kickoff return, Katschke hit Lynch for the 49-yard score.

The Warriors led 42-6 at halftime and 49-6 after three quarters before both the second and third string got to see varsity action in the fourth quarter, according to Roth.

Winamac hosts Tri-County next week.
