It was all Panorama last Friday night as the Panthers took on the Missouri Valley Big Reds. In an incredible 51-0 shut out on the road, this win undoubtedly solidified the Panthers as real contenders. And after a week of preparing in the same manner as their previous 44-6 Nodaway Valley victory, if you were head coach Lyle Alumbaugh, you wouldn’t want to be switching anything up.
It is difficult to look at this game without one player’s name to appear over and over again. Tyler Hein. In an astonishing offensive effort, Hein carried the ball 7 times for 223 yards, with 4 touchdowns–that’s just under 32 yards on every carry. Hein was equally lethal on the over side of the ball. He racked up 3 solo tackles and 4 assisted tackles, keeping the Big Reds at a negative 11 rushing yards.
Luke Webner also had a big night with 2 carries for 42 yards and one touchdown. Josiah Moulds was also a key player with 2 carries for 119 yards and one touchdown.
On the defensive side, the stats were evenly distributed throughout the team. Logan Hupp had 4 assisted tackles and 1 assisted sack. Mitchell McNeil had 1 solo tackle. Eric Fisher had 2 solo tackles, 1 for a loss, 4 assisted tackles, and 1 interception.
The Panthers are siting at 3-2 on the season with a big game this Friday as they host the 1-4 Des Moines Christian Lions.
