COTTONWOOD FALLS – So far so good for the Canton/Galva High football team as they now are 2-0 on the season and showing everyone why they are ranked number-one in 8-Man Division I after getting their second blowout win of the season on Friday in Cottonwood Falls when they point ruled Chase County 46-0 at halftime.

Scoring just 14 points in the first quarter, the Eagles seemed to be just trying to power up the offense by scoring on runs of 19 and 2 yards by Landon Everett and Tyson Struber. Brayden Collins added one two-point conversion while the second one failed.

Once that Eagle offense took the field in the second quarter, it was all over for Chase County as they rang up four touchdowns and 32 points to put an end to the game at halftime by the point rule.

All State quarterback Everett took to the air and connected with Struber on scoring passes that covered 68 and 60 yards, while getting a third scoring strike on a short six yarder to Kinser Colgin. Everett closed out the scoring when found the end zone on a 20-yard dash with just a hair over two minutes left in the half. Everett, Struber and Collins took care of the four two-point conversions to finish out the Canton/Galva 46-0 victory.

Everett once again had huge game by completing just five passes for 89 yards while running for another 146 on just eight carries. Struber, just a sophomore, covered 60 yards in rushing twice to go along with his 68 yards on two pass receptions while scoring three times.

As a team, the Eagles rang up 336 yards in total offense, averaging 13.4 yards a pop on just 25 plays while the defense locked down Chase County for just 71 yards on 33 offensive snaps. Leading that Eagle defense was Struber who recorded seven solo tackles and three assists, Brandon Huff with four solo and six assists, and Conner Koehn who garnered two solo and six assisted tackles. As a team, Canton/Galva dropped the Chase County offense for a loss of yardage seven times.
