JV football team prevails over Yankton By Jim Prosser In a crisply played football game, the Tanager JV team took an early lead, courtesy of a 48-yard, 10-play, 5-minute drive capped by a 10-yard run by Adam Brunick in the first quarter, only to give up a short drive by the Yankton sophs to make the quarter score 8-8.
Vermillion took the lead on a 56-yard pass from Brunick to J.J. Lamie and never looked back as they scored three TDs in the second half to one by Yankton. Those TDs were accomplished by Ben Oberle (14-yard run), Rich Boyd (eight-yard run), and Kyle Mollet (11-yard pass from Brunick).
Individual offensive stats: Oberle (95 yards/20 carries) and Boyd (63 yards/13 carries); Brunick completed six of six passes/125 yards and rushed for 46 yards/eight carries.
A stiff defense showed some sterling efforts by: Boyd (11 Ts, two QBsacks); Oberle and Mike Hanson (seven Ts and a pass breakup each); Tyler Brown (six Ts); Lamie and Jordan Anderson (five Ts each); and Mollet (recovered a fumble, and intercepted a pass along with four Ts)
The Vermillion JV football team ended 2-5 for the season.
