FOOTBALL: Tigers handle Remington

LYNDON—The Lyndon Tigers secured their postseason with a 47-14 win over Whitewater-Remington Oct. 30, claiming the runner-up spot in Class 2-1A District 4.

The Tigers began the game with three quick touchdowns, scoring on 80 and 33-yard runs by Daniel Burgess and a 40-yard run by Dawson Swinehart.

Remington answered with a pair of touchdown runs to pull back within 7.

“We talked all week about starting the game off really well and we were able to do that,” said Lyndon coach Brent Hoelting. “We jumped up 21-0, but unfortunately, we stared to lose some focus. We let them back into the game for a bit before we settled down and took control.”

The Tigers shot back with a touchdown run by Swinhart before the half. Swine Hart added 40 and 1-yard touchdown runs in the second half, and Wyatt Finch scored on a 10-yard touchdown run.

Swinehart led the rushers with 203 yards on 19 carries; Burgess had 149 yards on 11 carries and Finch had 96 yards on 17 carries. Swinehart was 6 for 13 passing for 95 yards.

“We had a great night rushing the ball and our line really established themselves up front,” Hoelting said. “We also played really well defensively for most of the game.”

Hunter Anderson had 10 tackles, 1 for lost yards; Flint Spencer had 10 tackles and a fumble recovery; Gabe Leuszler had 9 tackles, 1 for lost yards; Nate Kerschenske had 8 tackles and a 9-yard quarterback sack; Shawn Black had 9 tackles; Finch had 7 tackles; and Nick Ratzloff, Rylan Burns and Dalton Nichols each had quarterback sacks.

The Tigers (8-1) begin the postseason at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 7, at Marion (6-3).
