The Lanesboro gridiron squad decimated Glenville-Emmons during the Aug. 22 opener, 76-0.
Eleven LHS players scored as the Burros proved unstoppable. The Wolverines were hampered by having only 15 players on the varsity roster, which includes only two seniors. Lanesboro was content to let the clock run out at the G-E 12 yard line at game's end.
The LHS offense — both first-string and back-ups — proved so powerful that the Burros only faced one third down. Lanesboro ran 11 plays that gained 20 or more yards, nine of which resulted in touchdowns.
Collin Scott rushed seven times for 118 yards, including a 71-yard sprint that closed the scoring in the third quarter. Quarterback Will Semmen also ran seven times and finished with 115 yards, including touchdown scampers of 21, 32 and 22 yards. Other TD runs came from Tylar Miller (33 yards), Cole Schwichtenberg (37 yards), Liam Dorn (53 yards), Alex Reed (5 yards), Zach Voeltz (47 yards) and Brett Wangen (8 yards).
Semmen threw only two passes, but one went to Matt Luck for a 31-yard TD.
Dorn kicked four extra points, while Wangen, Jeremy Hanson and Mason Huerkamp ran in two-point conversions.
The Burros gained 629 yards, 598 on the ground. LHS averaged 13.9 yards per carry. G-E managed 121 total yards. With only 22 yards on the ground, G-E was most successful in the air, with two quarterbacks combining to complete 11 of 27 passes for 99 yards.
Scott intercepted one Wolverine aerial while Jerael Eddy had two sacks. The Burro defense stopped six of 11 G-E possessions with negative yardage.
Late in the game, the Wolverines drove 51 yards before running out of downs at the LHS 29. They then went 76 yards to the Burro 9 before Scott’s interception stopped the drive near the goal line.
The Burros scored 27 points in the first period on the way to a 62-0 halftime margin. LHS added 14 points in the third quarter, while there was no scoring in the fourth period.
Lanesboro has a bye this week, and will travel to Randolph on Sept. 5. LHS hosts Lyle/Pacelli on Sept. 12.
