Low scoring affair puts NRHEG on top
There was little offensive punch to be found Friday night between NRHEG and Lake Crystal-Wellcome Memorial. But in the end NRHEG came out on top 7-0 in what resembled more of a baseball score than football. It proved to be the lowest scoring game of the season for the Panthers.
The only offensive highlight of the game came in the fourth quarter with 6:45 left in the game when NRHEG’s Lonnie Wilson sprinted for an 86-yard run across the field for a touchdown. Ben Schoenrock added the point after kick to give the Panthers a 7-0 lead.
Wilson finished the game with 93 yards on eight rushing attempts. Kordell Schlaak added 42 yards on 15 runs. The Panthers topped Lake Crystal in rushing with 153 total yards to LC’s 77 yards.
NRHEG didn’t have much of a passing game as quarterback Blake Ihrke only had one completion in the game for nine yards. He threw one interception on the night.
Lake Crystal overpowered NRHEG in passing with 81 yards compared to Ihrke’s nine yards.
Ihrke also led the Panthers defensively with one tackle and one sack.
Lake Crystal committed five turnovers in the game compared to NRHEG’s two. LC had three penalties for 15 yards while the Panthers had four for 30 yards.
With the victory, the Panthers improved their season record to 3-4. NRHEG closes out its regular season tonight (Wednesday) at Gibbon-Fairfax-Winthrop in Winthrop.
