The Reed City Coyotes took to the road on Friday night to square off with the Fremont Packers. Fremont was coming off their first win in eighteen games, and hoping to keep the momentum rolling. Unfortunately for the Packers, they could not keep up with an explosive offense of Reed City in a 46-6 contest.
Unlike last week, in which Reed City rushed for the entirety of their offensive yardage, the Coyotes flexed their ability to air it out this week as well. Xavier Allen and Isaac Williams paired up to complete all three pass attempts, racking up 109 yards and one touchdown. Seth Jackson was on the receiving end of all three passes.
On the ground, Reed City recorded 30 carriers for 289 yards. Noah Jones led the way with eleven carries for 174 yards and three touchdowns. Trent Livermore had five carries for fifty-three yards, and Alex Wirgau scored the other rushing touchdown.
The defense stepped up, making vast improvements after yielding forty points a week ago. Teddy Cross led the way with nine tackles, while Payton Hansen added four tackles. Hansen and Seth Jackson each found the end zone on defense as well, as they each intercepted a pass and ran it into the end zone for a touchdown.
Coach Scott Shankel was happy with the outcome, stating that winning on the road is always a great accomplishment. He also is happy to see the defense step up tonight, as the offense continues to produce.
Next week, the Coyotes will take on Grant for a shot at the outright conference title in the CSAA-Gold. Fremont will conclude their regular season against Big Rapids.
