Lisbon too much for WACO football
WAYLAND — The WACO football team couldn’t match Lisbon’s ground game in a 30-6 loss at home on Friday night.
The Lions scored once in every quarter. They had a 3-yard touchdown run in both the first and second quarters; after halftime, they made a 55-yard run into the end zone and then scored their final touchdown on an 11-yard run.
WACO got its only score with 2:38 left in the first quarter. Tucker Janecek intercepted a Lisbon pass at the Lion’s 39-yard line and returned it to the 21-yard line. From there, Bryce Achen ran for a first down, and a 1-yard run by Janecek capped the four-play, 21-yard drive with a touchdown.
Janecek finished with 49 yards rushing on the night in 14 tries, averaging 3.5 yards per carry. Achen had 65 yards in 12 attempts, 5.4 yards per carry. Cey Saeugling averaged 4.2 yards per carry, going 25 net yards in six tries.
Both the Warriors and the Lions had 41 rushing attempts in the game, but Lisbon picked up 266 net yards while WACO had just 119 yards on the ground.
Braden Blake was 3-for-10 passing for 35 yards. Isaac Black caught a 20-yard pass and Joseph Mitchell had two receptions for 15 yards on the night.
Defensively, Janecek had a team-high 10 tackles and Saeugling had eight. Jackson Gerot made six tackles.
WACO is now 2-4 on the season and 2-2 in the district. The Warriors travel to play rival W-MU on Friday. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
