INMAN – For the fourth Friday in a row the Inman Teuton football team has not only won a game, but they shutout their opponent again, this time at home agaisnt Oakley, winning 40-0.

The Teutons have now outscored their first opponents 246-0 as their defense held Oakley to just 76 yards on offense off 44 plays.

Leading that defense was Jace Doerksen with 8 tackles while Kyler Konrade recorded seven. Thirteen Teutons put a defensive stat in the books on the night, including Josiah Buller who picked off two Oakley passes.

“Our defense was excellent,” explained Teuton head coach Lance Sawyer during his post-game reflections. “They didn’t give up a first down in the first half which gave us great field position throughout the game. Kyler (Konrade) led the way at linebacker while Josiah (Buller) had a great night in pass coverage in picking off two interceptions.”

Inman scored in each quarter, beginning with a short two-yard run by quarterback Jace Doerksen in the first quarter before the Teutons put three scores on the board in the second quarter on a one-yard plunge by Tanner Heckel, a five-yard jog by Kyler Konrade and then the big 60-yard scoring pass play from Doerksen to Harrison Brunk. With one two-point conversion made, this gave the Teutons a commanding 26-0 lead at the halftime break.

Doerksen connected with Konrade for a 24-yard scoring pass in the third quarter before Kendyn Blank reached the end zone in the fourth quarter on a 41-yard scamper.

Offensively, Inman recorded 405 yards on 43 offensive snaps with Doerksen completing 7-of-11 for 194 yards with Harrison Brunk covering 111 of those yards on just two receptions. Leading the Teuton rushing attack was Kendyn Blank with 92 yards on seven carries while Kyler Konrade covered 87 yards on 11 totes.

Coach Sawyer continued his reflections by adding, “I was really impressed with how Oakley came out and played defense. They were solid up front and their linebacker’s flowed well. They stopped us on the opening drive which was the first time we haven’t scored on a drive in three games. They were able to slow the game down, so we only had eight total possessions on offense the entire game. It was good to see our guys play a full game.”

Concluding his post-game reflections, Coach Sawyer praised some of his key players by saying, “Jace (Doerksen) was impressive on both sides of the ball. He was excellent in the passing game, connecting with Harrison (Brunk) on two deep balls and then finding Kyler (Konrade) in the endzone in the second half. Kendyn (Blank) had another solid game running the ball.”

Next up for the 4-0 Teutons will be on Friday, October 1 when they travel to Plainville, a team that is currently 3-1 on the season and have outscored their opponents in their three wins 105-13 and just beat Ell-Saline 36-0 on Friday.
