KONRADE, DOERKSEN, BRUNK BROWN LEAD INMAN

By William

The Inman Teuton football team continues on a roll as they scored their sixth straight victory on Friday when they defeated Remington 54-13.

“We have so many guys stepping up at this point in the season,” noted Teuton Head Coach Lance Sawyer. “We had five different receivers catch a ball and eight different running backs run the ball. We are playing with so much enthusiasm right now it is fun to watch.”

The Teutons jumped out to a 14-0 first quarter advantage on a pair of scoring passes from Jace Doerksen to Kyler Konrade and Kendyn Blank of 29 and 40 yards respectively while Carter Brown kicked both extra points.

Inman had a huge second quarter as Konrade scored on another pass from Doerksen, this time covering 22 yards before Harrison Brunk made two huge scores on a 56-yard run and then a 54-yard punt return. Carter Brown added a scoring run of 19 yards to give the Teutons a 40-0 lead before Remington was able to get a late score to make it 40-7 going into the halftime break.

Nate Shober scored on a five-yard run in the third quarter before Konrade got his third score of the game on a 45-yard scamper to the end zone to finish off the Teuton scoring. Remington added a score in the fourth quarter to make the final score of 54-13.

Inman rolled up 419 yards of offense on 43 offensive plays with 279 of those coming on 29 carries while Jace Doerksen threw for 140 yards on eight completions of 13 passing attempts.

Konrade led the team in running with 72 yards on just five carries while Harrison Brunk ran for 62 yards on just four carries and Tanner Heckel had 43 yards on three totes as eight Teutons carried the ball in the game.

Konrade was also the leading receiver with 67 yards on four receptions while Kendyn Blank had 40 on his lone catch.

Coach Sawyer continued his reflections by saying, “Harrison (Brunk) had his best game while Jace (Doerksen) again had an efficient game throwing the ball. He does such a good job spreading the ball around it is tough to focus on just one receiver. Kyler (Konrade) was really good on both sides of the ball as he was able to grind the ball early and when they started to work outside to stop Kendyn (Blank) and Tanner (Heckel) he was able to hit a couple of big runs up the middle.”

Defensively, Inman held Remington to 228 yards on 53 offensive snaps, with Carter Brown accounting for nine tackles which includes two for a loss of yardage.

Coach Sawyer concluded his post-game reflections by adding, “Our defensive line was really good in shutting down their run game early on. Dairien Dawes and Grant Thimmesch did a nice job of getting off blocks and making tackles in the backfield forcing them to throw the ball. On our defense you will not find a much better linebacker duo than Kyler (Konrade) and Carter (Brown).”

Now 6-1 for the season, the Teutons will have a tough battle on Friday, October 23 when they host Smith Center who is also 6-1 for the season and on a six-game winning streak. Smith Center scored a 46-13 victory over Ell-Saline on Friday.
