The Yellow Jackets entered the game on Saturday afternoon having won their last four conference games. The Yellow Jackets were able to shut down Mayville’s offense causing turnovers and turning them into points on the offensive end. The Yellow Jackets won 30-6 to make them 6-3 overall and 5-1 in the DAC Conference. “Winning this game was great for the seniors. They all played a huge roll in the success we have had in the past few years and they played a major role in the win on Saturday as well” said Coach Scott.
Offensively the Yellow Jackets had their running game connecting on all cylinders behind freshman running back Tanner Ehrlich who had 200 total yards and two touchdowns. Sophomore Corey Wheeler also had a great afternoon having four catches for 81 yards. Freshman quarterback Drew Hodgs played a solid game going 16-27 for 221 yards and two touchdowns.
Defensively the Yellow Jackets forced the Comets into five turnovers on the afternoon including four interceptions by junior defensive back Tony Dill. “Our linebackers played a great game leading us in tackles behind Sid Colglazier and Forrest Sainsbury” added Coach Scott. The specials teams played a solid game behind freshman kicker/punter Kraig Tafoya who pinned them inside the 20 yard line on all three punts. Both Tafoya and freshman Micah Nielson combined to go 3-4 in field goals on the afternoon.
The Yellow Jackets will travel this weekend to Valley City State University for their final DAC Conference game.
