Things got off to a slow start Friday, September 29 between Wyandotte and Schlagle. The first half ended tied at 13, but the Stallions came out strong in the second half. They eventually pulled away for a final score of 41-13.

Senior running back Ivan Webb led the Stallions all night. He capped off a 75-yard drive with a 1-yard run. That was after Webb set Schlagle up with a long run earlier in the drive.

It looked like Schlagle had things in control when senior quarterback Brayden Sosa found Sharmar Bush for a 23-yard touchdown midway through the second quarter to go up 13-0. The Bulldogs would have other plans.

Wyandotte found themselves with a fourth and goal from the 4 with three minutes left in the half. Junior running back Angelo Hill took the direct snap and powered his way through two tacklers into the end zone.

After a Schlagle fumble, Wyandotte took over 36 yards away from a tie game. They would capitalize on a 23-yard pass to Walzel Evans. As the ball hung in the air Evans out jumped his defender, and after bobbling the ball he came down with it. A missed PAT saw the teams even at 13 as the halftime horn sounded.

“I told them we had a target on our back,” Schlagle head coach Dwayne Williams said. “I told them the second half its 0-0. Let’s start the game all over and do it the right way this time.

“[In the first half] We ran to the ball, we gang tackled to running backs,” Wyandotte head coach Michael Lockett said, “In the second half we had a bunch of starters out and had to play JV guys. We just got bit by the injury bug.”

After halftime it was all Ivan Webb.

After methodically driving down field to open the second half, Webb got the ball on a toss to the left. He showed patience staying close to his blocker until he got to the second level then he was gone and 23 yards later he was in the end zone. The Stallions wouldn’t look back.

“It’s a beautiful thing to have a guy like Ivan on our team,” Williams said. “When we have a line like this and someone like him it’s really a blessing.”

Webb would add two more touchdowns before the night was over including a 77-yard gallop.

“He is a hell of a player,” Lockett said. “If you are not swarming to the ball, wrapping up and getting good form tackles he is going to break one. Every time he touches the ball he is able to break one.”

Schlagle will be traveling to Sumner Academy Oct. 6, and Wyandotte will be at Washington.
