Huskies pound Falcons

by Steve Ottman Falls News Corresponden

NEW HOLSTEIN – The New Holstein Huskies rolled up 394 total yards of offense to hand the Sheboygan Falls Falcons a 51-12 loss in Eastern Wisconsin Conference football action Friday, Sept. 17.

Huskies quarterback Sam Cash threw for 175 yards (9-of-11) and one touchdown, while running for another touchdown score. New Holstein enjoyed a balanced running attack, which amassed 219 yards.

New Holstein evened its record at 1-1 in the Eastern Wisconsin Conference, while Falls dropped to 0-2 in the EWC (0-4 overall).

The Falcons fell behind 17-0 in the first quarter and had a hard time defending the much larger Huskies team.

Towering Huskies end Brett Boettcher hauled in three catches for 88 yards to lead the New Holstein aerial assault.

Falls mounted a scoring drive early in the second quarter, after junior kick returner Bobby Musil caught a line drive kick and returned the ball 35 yards to the Huskies 35-yard line.

Falcons junior Zach Van Engen, in his first start at quarterback, directed the offense to the Huskies 15.

He then found senior Nick Roelse open for a 15-yard touchdown pass. After the point-after attempt was blocked, the Falcons cut the gap to 17-6.

The Huskies answered quickly on a Cash 1-yard touchdown run. Boettcher had a 48-yard pass reception to set up the touchdown.

Falls got a big boost on the ensuing kickoff, as Musil, the smallest player on the field, electrified the Falcons’ faithful, with a 97-yard kick return for a touchdown,

The stellar kick return put the Falcons back into the game at 24-12. The Falcon’s ensuing two-point conversion attempt failed.

The Falcons had their momentum stopped on a referee’s blown call. With the Huskies driving, Cash passed to Erik Hansen, who appeared to fumble the ball. Peter Heinen of Falls picked up the loose ball and ran it to the Huskies’ 20.

After a conference, the referees ruled that it was an inadvertent whistle and replayed the down.

New Holstein took advantage of the second chance and went 66 yards in nine plays to score on a 10-yard touchdown run from Jake Entringer, which gave the Falcons a 30-12 advantage.

The Huskies added another score on an 8-yard touchdown run from Entringer to make the score 37-12 at halftime.

The Falcons lost several players on offense to injuries and gained only 65 yards in the second half.

Musil continued to collect big yards on kickoff returns, with nine returns for 224 yards. Musil led the Falcons in rushing with 19 yards and had 15 yards receiving. Van Engen completed 2 of 5 passes for 30 yards.
