H.Trinity 38, Remington 7

By Marshall Sunner

Special to The Hutchinson News

HUTCHINSON — The Remington Broncos fell to Hutchinson Trinity 38-7 Friday in HOAL play in Hutchinson.

Crazy Stat: The Trinity Catholic defense recorded two interceptions against Remington on Friday night, but neither one was picked by a defensive back. Instead, two Celtic defensive linemen, Connor Wolfe and Landon Neufeld, were the lucky ones to get their hands on the ball. Wolfe showed incredible concentration as his pick was deflected six different times by Trinity players. Wolf had this to say afterwards.

“We practice tip drill all of the time, and I was at the right place at the right time,” he said. “I never thought I would ever get an interception in my lifetime.”

The Turning Point: The Celtics could not catch a break early in the game, but late in the first quarter, junior Kaleb Hammeke showed his explosiveness a returned a punt 73 yards to the house. After that moment, the Celtics scored 32 unanswered points.

Offensive Player of the Game: Kaleb Hammeke has been a freak of nature through the first three games of the season. Friday night against a stout Bronco defense, he wracked up 346 all purpose yards, including a 73 yard punt return touchdown, two rushing touchdowns, and a single passing touchdown.

Defensive Player of the Game: Junior defensive lineman Jack Neal was a monster on the inside, recording 10 tackles, while recording and assisting on three sacks.

He Said It: “I give all of the credit to my linemen and blockers downfield. I got some key blocks from the wideouts today that helped plays develop. No matter who is in front of me, I have room to make plays happen, and it’s because of the guys up front. I contribute all I can to the team and the win is what matters the most.” - Kaleb Hammeke on his flaming hot start to the season.

Up Next: Trinity (3-0) travels to Sedgwick, while Remington (0-3) hosts the Warriors from Marion.

CANTON — It only took 19 seconds and one play from scrimmage for the Canton-Galva High School football team to score Friday night against Peabody-Burns and take an 8-0 lead. They went on to score six more times as they made easy work of the Warriors in a 46-0 homecoming victory.

Eagles quarterback Landon Everett accounted for five touchdowns, two with his feet and three with his arm, to lead the high powered Canton-Galva offense that rolled up 322 total yards. Jonah Sargent ran for two touchdowns and two-two point conversions for 16 points on the night, while Dylan Wood was on the receiving end of Everett’s three TD passes.

Everett finished the game 6 of 13 for 94 yards with Wood catching four of those passes for 70 yards. Nick Pearson had one catch of 24 yards.

Defensively Canton-Galva held Peabody to just 83 yards on 38 plays including zero yards in the air and forced four turnovers while allowing just seven first downs. Wood led Eagles tacklers with five and a half, with Sargent and Conner Koehn each credited with five. Eleven different Eagle defenders were credited with at least on tackle in the game.

“We really took a step forward tonight defensively, played down hill the whole night and pitched the shutout tonight,” said Eagles Head Coach Shelby Hoppes. “Really proud of these kids. We’re starting to move forward and now district play starts so we got to move on from this one and on to the next real fast.”

Everett opened up the scoring with a 53-yard touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage, just 19 seconds into the game. A Sargent run for the PAT made the score 8-0 Eagles.

It took nearly nine minutes for Canton-Galva to get on the board again, this time with Sargent scoring from six yards out. He added the two-point conversion once again and it was 16-0 Eagles with 2:52 left in the opening quarter.

Everett took to the air for the next Eagles score, finding Wood for a 13-yard strike at 11:19 in the second quarter. The PAT was no good and the Eagles led 22-0. Everett added a touchdown on the ground and in the air before halftime, scoring on a 39 yard run and a 25 yard pass to Wood. Both PAT’s were no good and Canton-Galva led at the break 34-0.

Six minutes into the third quarter it was Everett to Wood again, this time for 12 yards. A missed point after touchdown left the score at 40-0 Canton-Galva. Sargent put an exclamation point on the night with a 14-yard run that ended the game with 10:25 left to play and the Eagles fans celebrating a convincing 46-0 homecoming win.

Everett finished the game with 151 yards on 17 carries for an 8.9 per carry average. Sargent added 68 yards on eight carries while Wood had a carry for nine yards. The Eagles ground game averaged 8.8 yards an attempt, with the passing game gaining an average of 15.7 yards per catch. Canton-Galva’s players have learned an entirely new offense and defense in the last two months since Hoppes took over as head coach.

Canton-Galva improves to 2-1 with the win. Peabody-Burns falls to 0-3 and plays Friday at Goessel.
