PEABODY – For the fifth week in a row the Canton/Galva football team scored a lopsided victory with a 56-0 whitewash of Peabody/Burns on the road on Friday.

The Eagles scored four touchdowns in each of the first two quarters to give the them enough to point rule the Warriors.

Landon Everett had a huge first quarter by throwing three scoring passes to three different Eagle receivers, a 10 yarder to Tyler Rummel, a nine-yard pass to Kinser Colgin and then tossed a short five-yard score to Tyson Struber. Brayden Collins added a 68-yard scamper for a touchdown, which combined with two converted 2-pointers gave the Eagles a commanding 28-0 lead after the first twelve minutes of play.

The second quarter began much the same when Everett connected with Struber again for a touchdown, this time on a play that covered 47 yards. Collins squeezed in a 15-yard scoring run in between an Everett fumble recovery for a touchdown and another Everett score on a four-yard run.

Despite the lopsided score, Peabody/Burns had the ball over double the amount of time Canton/Galva did but it was the Eagle defense that kept the clamps on the Warriors as they developed just 30 yards in total offense on 35 offensive plays, including a minus-19 yards rushing on 18 carries.

It helped that the swarming Eagle defense managed to cause Peabody/Burns into five turnovers, three on fumbles and two on interceptions which were made by Everett and Struber.

The stifling Eagle defense was led by Colgin with five solo tackles while Brandon Huff had three-and-a-half tackles with three being solo. Maybe the most impressive defensive stat line came from Conner Koehn who was credited with just two tackles, but one was a solo, one was a quarterback sack, and both went for a loss of yardage.

Offensively, Canton/Galva rolled up 267 yards on 33 plays with the yardage spread evenly as they had 121 yards through the air and 146 on the ground while recording 15 first downs.

Collins led the ground attack by picking up 97 yards on six carries plus his two scores and Everett ran for 44 yards on eight runs while going 7-for-18 in passing. Struber was the top Eagle receiver, covering 95 yards on just four receptions.

Still ranked number one in 8-Man Division I, the Eagles will now prep for a tough home game next Friday, October 11, when Goessel comes to town. Goessel is currently 4-1 and on a four-game win streak since their opening week loss to Moundridge. Goessel has always scored three shutouts, including a 48-0 shut down of Herington on Friday.
