LINCOLN – The Canton/Galva finished out their unbeaten season on Friday by going on the road and steamrolling Lincoln 70-8.

With the victory, the Eagles finish out the regular season as District Champions at 9-0 as they continue their journey toward a possible repeat 8-Man Division I state championship.

Brayden Collins had a career game as he ran the ball just nine times but covered 205 yards and scored six touchdowns in the process, including three in each of the first and second quarters. Collins scored on runs of five, seven, fifty-seven, nine, twenty-two, and sixty-nine yards, plus a pair of two-point extra point conversions.

Garrett Maltbie did his share of the work on offense by completing eight of nine pass attempts for 167 yards and a pair of scores to Tyson Struber and Tyler Rummel.

The Eagles scored 32 points in the first quarter while giving up a single score to host Lincoln before erupting for another 38 points in the second quarter.

Overall, Canton/Galva averaged 18.3 yards per offensive play as they had the ball just a bit over four and one-half minutes but gained 365 yards on just 20 plays.

The Eagle defense was stellar once again as they held Lincoln to a meager 3.1 yards on 46 plays.

Leading the Canton/Galva defense was Tyler Rummel and Conner Koehn who each recorded 6.5 tackles in the game while Garrett Maltbie and Brandon Huff each had 6 tackles. As a team the Eagles had 10 tackles that resulted in a loss of yardage, including 2.5 by Huff and a pair by both Conner Koehn and Braison Alcala.
