(September 22nd, 2014): With a Hunter in their midst, the Indians had no issues tracking the end zone against the Bulldogs.
Hunter Yackee accounted for 6 touchdowns against Swanton, as the Wauseon Freshmen Team soundly defeated their NWOAL neighbors 49-26. Throwing for 5 scores, running for another, and even passing for a two point conversion, Yackee served as the catalyst for the Indian offense, claiming responsibility for 38 of those 49 points.
Of course, all those touchdown passes would have landed in the grass if there weren’t capable receivers ready and waiting to make the catch. Dawson Rupp made a few of those receptions, finding the end zone 3 times. Owen Newlove and Everett Bueter were also on the receiving end of scoring tosses from Yackee.
Bueter complimented that touchdown catch with a sprint into the end zone as well. He also added a successful rush for a two point conversion.
The offensive barrage from Wauseon completely negated a decent showing by the Bulldogs in their own movement of the ball. Those 26 points appear pedestrian at best when stacked against the 23 point differential with the Indian score of 49.
One thing is for certain, with Yackee in command of their offense, this game probably won’t be the last time the Indians have a fruitful hunt.
