INMAN – The Inman football team dismantled Stanton County in their first-round matchup of the Class 1A playoffs, thanks to a career night for Kolby Blank in winning 49-6 on Friday.
With the win, the Teutons now 5-4 for the season, will go on the road to Elkhart next Friday. Elkhart is 7-1 for the year and beat Sublette 55-24 on Friday.
The game could’ve been called the Kolby Blank show as he covered 263 yards on the ground with just 13 running attempts, while scoring five touchdowns. To top off his night, Kolby was the Teutons leading receiver as well with two receptions that covered another 43 yards.
Blank scored early on a six-yard run in the first quarter, while Derick Johnson caught a 26 pass from Jace Doerksen for another score and the Teutons were up early 14-0.
Inman added three more scores in the second quarter as Kolby scored from 14, 32 and 75 yards out, giving the Teutons a whopping 35-0 lead going into the halftime break.
Doerksen hit Kolby Blank for a 15-yard score in the third quarter and then Blank rambled in from 48 yards out in the fourth quarter to close out the Teuton scoring. With Carter Brown connecting on all seven extra point kicks, Inman earned their final 49-6 victory.
