Falls City 54
FALLS CITY -- The football juggernaut that is Falls City secured its fourth straight shutout and sixth of the season with a dominant 54-0 win over Louise.
The Beavers once again found success at every facet of the game. They scored on offense, scored on defense, and scored on special teams, just as they have done throughout the season.
On offense, the Beavers had another typical Falls City performance. The running game was phenomenal and the passing game was way above average for a 1A program. On the ground, senior Justin Twine led the way with 158 yards and two touchdowns on just eight carries. Quarterback Dean Gaskamp had five carries for 64 yards and another two touchdowns. Falls City also got good gains from David Brodsky, Zach Jimerson, Kendall Kanak, Dayton Jaskinia, Joseph Swierc, and Olxman Cruz. Together they averaged nearly 12 yards per carry en route to 350 total yards.
In the passing game, Falls City used three different quarterbacks during the night. Gaskamp completed his one pass for 13 yards, Jimerson completed 1 of 2 passes for 8 yards, and Twine completed 6 of 8 passing attempts for 91 yards and two touchdowns. Austen Camber was the leading receiver with two grabs for 37 yards. Gaskamp caught a pass for 26 yards, Stephen Harlos reeled in two grabs for 16 yards and a touchdown, and Brodsky had a touchdown catch from 10 yards out. Swierc had one catch for 10 yards and Cody Houdmann had one catch for 13.
On defense, senior Eric Wiatrek led the team with 15 tackles, followed by Mitch Lyssy with 13 tackles. In addition, as many as 15 other Beaver players registered tackles. Harlos registered a sack, Dayton Jaskinia and Devon Lyssy each recovered fumbles, and Mitch Lyssy had an interception return for a touchdown that went down for 55 yards.
The Beavers also dominated on special teams. Twine fielded the one kickoff Louise had on the night, and he made them pay with a 41-yard return. Camber fielded two punts, and made Louise suffer as they gave up 85 yards, including a 70-yard return for a touchdown. Conner Jendrusch converted on 6 of 8 point-after attempts.
With just one game left in the district season, it seems no one has an answer for Falls City. The Beavers are 9-0, and will close out the regular season this Friday in Runge. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
