FALLS CITY -- When it comes to football rivalries, there are a lot of good ones out there. It doesn’t usually get any bigger than the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins, or the Texas Longhorns and A&M Aggies. But here in Wilson County, there are a couple of rivalries that come close, and Poth versus Falls City is one of them. The two teams met again last Friday, and it was Poth that waltzed out of Beaver country with a 49-6 victory.

The Pirates went into the game with a feeling of confidence, having recently defeated Marion in a close 8-7 contest. The Beavers, on the other hand, were still trying to shake off a 34-14 loss at the hands of Stockdale in their opener. Unfortunately for the defending state champs, Poth proved too tough in Falls City.

The Pirates began their scoring onslaught just a minute and a half into the game, as junior running back Phillip Garza found daylight ahead of him for 60 yards and a touchdown. The extra-point kick was good, and the blue and gold faithful celebrated the early 7-0 lead.

On Poth’s next offensive possession of the game, the Pirates drove down into Beaver territory and found themselves just inside the red zone when Braden Lyssy found the goal line. The senior quarterback kept the ball and ran in from 17 yards out, making it a 13-0 advantage for Poth. Senior Hunter Dugi then added the extra point, and the score stood at 14-0.

Things settled down a bit from there, and the teams held each other in check for most of what was left in the first half. With time winding down in the second quarter, though, Falls City drove down into Pirate territory, and then cheered as junior running back Phillip Lyssy ran in from 1 yard out. The extra-point attempt was no good, but Falls City had climbed back into the game at 14-6.

With less than 20 seconds remaining in the half, things were looking up for Falls City. The kickoff team took the field, and Head Coach Mark Kirchhoff was hoping to put the Pirates deep in their own territory to end the half. Unfortunately for Kirchhoff and the Beavers, Poth junior Zach Lyssy didn’t get the message. Instead of being content with an 8-point lead, he took the ensuing kickoff and returned it 80 yards for a third Pirate touchdown. Dugi added the extra point, and Poth took a 21-6 lead into the break.

In the second half, it was all Poth, all night. The Pirates added four additional touchdowns to the scoreboard, three by the offense, and one courtesy of the Poth defense.

Garza scored the Pirates’ first touchdown of the second half on a 31-yard touchdown run, and Braden Lyssy added another score seconds later on a 44-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown while on defense. Braden Lyssy then connected with Trey Broyles for a 27-yard touchdown strike, and Braden Lyssy ran in the Pirates’ final touchdown on the first play of the fourth quarter. Dugi remained perfect kicking the ball, and Poth locked up the 49-6 win over Falls City.

Garza led the Poth offense with 126 yards and three touchdowns on nine carries. Braden Lyssy ran the ball 10 times for 65 yards and two touchdowns, and Blake Lyssy added 22 yards on four carries. Braden Lyssy completed six of 10 passing attempts for 75 yards and a touchdown, and also threw one interception. Tyler Kallies led the Pirate receivers with 58 yards on two grabs. Zach Lyssy also had two catches for 25 yards, and Broyles caught the one pass for 27 yards and the touchdown.

Junior quarterback Cameron Soto was the Beavers’ go-to guy, as he led the Falls City offense with 64 rushing yards on 10 carries. He also completed five of 12 passes for another 69 yards of offense. Soto was intercepted once.

Falls City sophomore Dean Gaskamp ran for 20 yards, Phillip Lyssy earned 18, Tyler Wiatrek and Kendall Kanak each earned 16 yards, and Cody Jendrusch added 14. Wiatrek also caught four passes for 57 yards, and Wade Jimerson caught one pass for 12 paces.

With the win, the Pirates improve to 2-0 on the year, while the Beavers fall to 0-2. Falls City will travel to San Antonio to face the TMI Panthers this Friday, Sept. 9, while Poth travels south to George West to face the Longhorns. Kickoff for both games is set at 7:30 p.m.
