Murray 52,

Moravia 0

MORAVIA — Andrew Rider tied the national eight-player record for career punt returns for touchdowns as Murray rolled past Moravia Friday, 52-0.

Rider had his 10th and 11th career punt return touchdowns in the game, for 66 and 51 yards. That ties Dick Maurer of Prospect, Ore., who played from 1966 to 1969.

Rider, who carried nine times from scrimmage for 86 yards, also surpassed the 3,000-yard career rushing mark. His three rushing touchdowns made him the school leader in rushing TDs, passing the previous record of 50 held by Caleb Byers.

Coach Keith Shields said the Mustangs responded well from the previous week’s loss to Adair-Casey. Murray bolted to a 33-0 lead in the first quarter and led 46-0 at halftime.

Seth Nerness scored on a 33-yard run and 20-yard pass from Thane Simmons, and Sam Rockhold caught a 2-yard touchdown pass from Simmons. George Barber was dominant up front with six solo tackles, including three for losses and a quarterback sack.

“Our defense played well all night,” Shields said. “We gave up negative 27 yards rushing in the first half, and 18 passing. During the second half they had 22 yards rushing and 5 passing. We got positive contributions from everyone as the second half went quickly with the running clock.”

Murray, 5-2 overall and 3-1 in district play, faces Colo-Nesco this week.

CAM 80, Lenox 58

LENOX — Cam’s Trace Ticknor had nearly 500 yards of offense and 10 total touchdowns in an 80-58 victory over Lenox Friday.

The junior quarterback threw for 341 yards and eight TDs, and ran for 95 yards and two scores.

For awhile, it looked like Lenox was making an effective comeback from a slow start, moving in front 22-16 before the end of the first quarter. But the Cougars scored 28 points in the second quarter to go ahead 44-36 at halftime.

A 36-8 third quarter put CAM in control of the outcome. Ticknor had one touchdown run in the flurry and three TD passes to Michael Holste, who had seven catches for 214 yards and five TDs in the game.

Ticknor was 13-of-17 passing for 341 yards and eight TDs through the air. Both he and Dylan Amdor ran for 95 yards.

“The third quarter really hurt us as we turned the ball over three consecutive times and CAM used them to pull ahead, so we had to try things we are not used to doing,” Lenox coach Allen Dukes said.

Despite five turnovers in the game, Dukes said there were positives. Dustyn Rauch had 269 yards rushing, 167 yards in returns and 38 yards receiving. Frank Hoffman led the defense with seven solo tackles, nine assisted tackles and a fumble recovery.

“We have a bye week this week to get people healed,” Dukes said. Lenox stands 4-3 overall and 3-3 in the district. The next opponent Oct. 18 is Melcher-Dallas.

Nodaway Valley 32, Tri-Center 18

NEOLA — For the second week in a row, Nodaway Valley completed a second half comeback, this time turning an 18-12 halftime deficit into a 32-18 win.

The win improves Nodaway Valley to 3-3 overall and 3-1 in Class 1A District 8, and also guarantees the Wolverines of at least a tie for fourth place in the district.

“We controlled the ball with the run game and came up with big third down catches,” head coach Steve Shantz said. “Zach (Brewer) had a fantastic ground game, and our line blocked well against their eight-man front.”

Brewer carried the ball 45 times for 302 yards in the win, scoring touchdowns of 10 yards, 57 yards, 1 yard, 15 yards and 30 yards. The Wolverines rode Brewer’s shoulders to victory in the second half.

“I think in the second half, our offense was our best defense,” Shantz said. “Our first drive of the second half used up 9:12 of clock. Tri-Center had 14 plays in the second half and we had 40. After adjusting to their offensive speed, we did a nice job against a great running offense.

“We still need to do a better job in the first half of limiting mistakes on offense,” Shantz continued. “We will need to put together a great four quarters to compete at the highest level and our special teams were not very good.”

Nodaway Valley hosts Treynor (4-1, 2-0) on Friday.
