KoMets tame Tigers in Lake City
The Kasson-Mantorville football team is beginning to get healthy at the right time. With injuries to several key players, the KoMets have had to rely on a new wave of players while trying to install a new offense. As a result, K-M had limped to a 2-5 record heading into Friday night’s game with Lake City, but had shown flashes of getting things turned around in time for the playoffs.
As a result, the KoMets showed what kind of damage they can do when firing on all cylinders when they crushed the Tigers 49-14.
“The guys have been very confident in what they can get done,” head coach Broc Threinen said of his team. “To finally get it to go was huge.”
K-M didn’t play around with the Tigers in the first quarter as they forced a three and out before Aaron and Brady Berge ripped off long runs to give the KoMets an early 7-0 lead. A strong rushing attack was the theme of the night as Brady would pick up a second rushing touchdown later in the game and was complemented by long touchdowns by Matt Winkle and Noah Ryan.
“If we execute and take care of the football, it can be very good,” Threinen said of the ground game. “Our biggest struggle has been with the QB position, but Matt has done a great job working on that and he understands the great weapons he can get the ball to. He’s kind of like a point guard on a basketball team.”
