Winamac storms past Lake Station, 73-14

WINAMAC — Winamac’s first-team defense gave up its second score of the season but the offense scored 73 points to make it a moot point.

The Warriors pummeled Lake Station 73-14 on Friday night in a first-round sectional game.

The Class A No. 3 Warriors (10-0) host No. 7 Whiting (9-1) next week in a semifinal.

The Warriors racked up “just” 413 yards of offense en route to their 73 points. Though they did average 10.6 yards per play.

That’s because the Fighting Eagles (2-8) decided to go for on fourth down every time, not punting once in the contest and often going for it on fourth-and-long deep in their own territory.

The decision backfired as it allowed the potent Warrior offense a short field on several occasions that they were able to take advantage of

“I don’t understand what the philosophy was with that,” Winamac coach Tim Roth said.

Tyler Katschke rushed for 134 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries. He had a 1-yard TD run in the first quarter and a 55-yard run for a score in the second that gave the Warriors a 38-7 lead at the break.

Keegan Kasten opened the game with a 20-yard TD run. Levi Schultz had a 38-yard TD run in the first quarter.

Warrior quarterbacks completed 3-of-6 passes in the game, all for touchdowns.

J.T. Garnett had a 45-yard TD pass to Colin McGee and an 11-yard TD pass to Sean Lynch. Jack DeGroot had a 36-yard TD pass to Chris Williamson.

Lynch also scored on a sack-strip-fumble return from 25 yards out.

Caleb Bucinski had a 6-yard TD run and Dalton Rogers added a 1-yard score for the Warriors.

Zach Markley was 10-for-10 on extra points, breaking his own single-game school record, and he also booted a 40-yard field goal to open the second quarter.

Winamac’s first-team defense allowed its first score since a Pioneer touchdown in Week 2 on a 66-yard pass in the second quarter to the Eagles.

“They got behind us on one,” Roth said.

The second-team defense allowed a 56-yard TD on a halfback pass in the third quarter.

“Our defense played really well. Our front 7 played well. Obviously Lake Station couldn’t handle them,” Roth said. “We had a lot of tackles for a loss.”
