Football Openers Highlights


Mon, Aug 31st, 2015
Posted in All Sports

It wasn’t the best first week of action for county football teams. Only two (Fillmore Central and Mabel-Canton) of seven picked up victories. All games were played ‘college-style’, in the afternoon, per rescheduling due to expected bad weather. Fillmore Central had a long good ride home from Janesville. The Falcons got a pair of second quarter Tyson Ristau touchdown runs (42, 20) to take an 18-7 halftime lead. J-W-P closed to 18-13 following a mid-fourth-quarter Tom Gannon 1-yard TD run (18-13). After a failed on-side by the Bulldogs, the Falcons went 53 yards in twelve plays. A 25-yard Ristau run on 2nd and 18 was helpful. The 6’0” 180-pound senior capped the drive with a 3-yard score. A year ago it took until week seven for FC to find the win column. The 2015 Falcons are far hastier. They moved to 1-0 with a 25-13 over Janesville-Waldorf-Pemberton in cross-district football action. Ristau carried the weight, logging 16 carries for 189 yards and three TD’s. A Riley Means to Matson Kiehne 5-yard TD strike put FC on the board in the first quarter. Brady Ristau added 57 yards on ten carries. FC totaled 322 total yards, 282 of it coming on the ground. The Bulldogs tallied 244 total yards, 185 of it on the ground.

In an originally scheduled afternoon game, Mabel-Canton also had a long happy ride home, from Glenville. Mitch Kuhn (7-125 yards, TD rushing; 2-60 receiving) and Weston Whalen (14-164 yards, TD rushing) got the big chunks of yardage. Wayne Ross got the glory (13-68 yards, 3 TD’s rushing). Talon Peterson (9-59, TD rushing) and Brenden Kerns (11-33, TD rushing) also found pay-dirt. The Cougars put up 30 in the first quarter on the way to a 48-0 win over G-E. There was a bit of a discrepancy in rushing yards (M-C 64 for 485, G-E 14 for -49).
