Ghumm was honored for his punting abilities. He tallied 31 punts for 1,141 yards for the season with an average of 36.81 yards per game. His longest punt was 61 yards.
Schoenthaler was noted for his performance as defensive linebacker. He recorded 38 solo tackles and 37 assisted tackles. Schoenthaler also tallied five caused fumbles.
Four football players were named to Honorable Mention Teams: Cade Papes, defensive end; Lincoln Brungardt, nose guard; Ghumm, line-backer; and Flax, defensive back.
Football Coach Pat Haxton commended on the work-ethic of the honorees. “All-League isn’t as based on stats as it is performance and effort of individual players.”
Ness City started off strong, blowing out Trego in the first quarter, 0-14. Trego entered the end zone for the first and only time of the game in the second quarter, going into the locker room at halftime with a score of 6-20 and a 14 point deficit. Ness City controlled the second half of the game, scoring one touchdown in both quarters and defeating Trego with a final score of 6-26.
Trego, while only passing for 22 yards, stood out in the rushing game. Led by Senior Cade Papes, who ran for 112 yards, Trego rushed for 164 total yards on the game. Sophomore Cedric Flax also was the lead interceptor for the team, picked off one pass on the night for the Golden Eagles.
However, Flax’s one forced turnover was overshadowed by the one interception and two lost fumbles Trego gave to Ness City, which helped guarantee a win for the blue Eagles.
Coach Pat Haxton awarded three Golden Eagles “Players of the Game”: Defensive Player--Brandon Schoenthaler; Offensive Player--Cade Papes; and Overall Player--Corbin Schoenthaler.
Haxton weighed in on the team’s performance.
“I was really pleased with the intensity and effort by the team. We started slow, but after the first quarter, we started to play hard. I was happy with both sides of the ball. They are starting to understand the schemes and starting to trust each other, which is a big step for our program. We still need to find ways to score, but we are starting to execute and move the ball. Positive things came from that game.”
The 1-6 Trego Golden Eagles will play host to the 1-6 Hill City Ringnecks on October 25.
