REMINGTON – Four scoring plays of greater than 40 yards propelled the Inman Teuton football team, currently ranked number one in Class 1A according to the Wichita Eagle, to a decisive 40-point, 54-14 road victory Friday at Remington.
The Teutons scored early in the first quarter when Harrison Brunk broke lose for a 74-yard scamper to the end zone and then followed that up later in the stanza with a drive that ended in a Brant Mikulecky four-yard dive for a second score. With Samuel Shober and Kellen Schrag running in for a pair of two-point conversions, Inman held an early 16-0 advantage by the end of the first 12 minutes of play.
After Josiah Buller connected with Eli Brunk for a 10-yard scoring pass play early in the second quarter, he struck again only this time it covered 55 yards for another score and with two more converted two-point conversions, the Teutons were up 32-0 before Remington finally found the end zone themselves on a six-yard pass play. The Teutons took a 40-6 lead into the halftime break after Buller his Eli Brunk for a second scoring pass, this time form 41 yards out.
