PAT made it a 47-0 game at the break.
It was a marked contrast from Edgar’s previous game, a low-scoring 12-7 affair that saw Edgar punch above its weight when they defeated Onalaska, the fourth ranked team from D-3.
“We’re starting to finally get a rhythm,” Guden said later. “It’s only our third game so we’ve got a lot to improve on film, but we came out here and got some great things done.”
Edgar scored for one final time in the third quarter, with Brewster coming up with another big run. His 24-yard rushing touchdown, and Wolf’s PAT, was the final score of the night and made it 54-0. Edgar subbed in their younger players, and they continued to stymie Abby’s offense. With a running clock in effect the second half went by as quickly as an Edgar tailback.
Brewster led the Edgar offense, tallying a team high 158 yards and three TDs on just three carries. Dahlke added another 37 yards on three carries, and Wolf was an efficient two for two with 67 yards and one touchdown in the passing game. Lemmer led the way on defense with a team high 12 tackles. Guden had eight and Jordan Bunkleman had seven. The Wildcats’ next opponent will be at home, when they play the winless Thorp Cardinals this Friday. A victory seems inevitable, but Dahlke cautions that in 2020 every game is uncertain.
“Every week you never know if it’s going to be your last week, and the unknown is scary. So every week it’s a blessing that we can play. We don’t take any Friday for granted, and we just try to play our hearts out.”
