Coyotes blindside Weldon Valley


The Pawnee Coyotes football team traveled to Weldona, Colo., to take on conference rivals Weldon Valley Warriors Friday.

The Coyotes racked up 28 points in the first quarter and held the Warriors to only six points. During the second quarter, Pawnee tallied another 30 points while Weldon Valley added another touchdown to their score, making the score at halftime 58-12.

Adding another 13 points to the scoreboard in the third quarter, Pawnee came away with a big win 71-12.

According to Pawnee High School Head Coach Doug Miller, Weldon Valley was without some players they started the year with so they were trying to figure out what to do without them.

“They kept playing hard though and didn’t give up,” Miller reported. “We only ran 21 pays on offense and the guys capitalized on a big percentage of them.”

Leading rusher for the team was Tyler Krieger with 90 yards, followed by Bryce Schnug with 78 and Drew Ellis with 60. Rey Moore had 30 rushing yards, Adam Perryman rushed for 11 yards and James Krist had nine yards. Wyatt Schnug had seven rushing yards. Owen Wahlert passed for 41 yards to Ellis. Krieger, Bryce Schnug and Ellis each made three touchdowns and Moore added one touchdown. Ellis scored six points by field goals and Krist completed one field goal for two points.

“We let some players run the ball who usually never get the chance, like Adam, Wyatt and James,” Miller explained.

Wyatt Schnug lead the team in tackles with 11 followed by Moore and Bryce Schnug with nine tackles each. Ellis contributed seven tackles, Joe Sanders, Krist and Wahlert had five tackles a piece. Perryman had three tackles and Krieger had one. Moore had a fumble recovery and Sanders, Krist and Wahlert each had one sack.

Ellis ran for 66 yards in kickoff returns as well as had 208 yards in kickoffs. Bryce Schnug had 64 yards in kick off returns 75 yards in punt returns. Pawnee will host conference rival Briggsdale Falcons Friday for the last regular-season game.
