Stillwater Turns the Table on Lakers in Class D Final
What a difference a month makes. On October 14th the Warrensburg-Lake George football team rolled over Stillwater 50-7. The Warriors were missing four starters that night, including signal caller Jaxson Mueller.
Saturday in the Section II Class D Super Bowl, Stillwater turned the tables on the Lakers, using a huge second quarter and taking advantage of Warrensburg-Lake George miscues to pull away for a 41-14 victory at Troy High School.
All three turnovers by the Lakers proved critical as they resulted in quick scores by the Warriors.
W-LG scored the only touchdown of the first quarter on a 45-yard strike from Caden Allen to Nick Jeckel to take a 6-0 with 1:54 to play. The two-point conversion run failed.
In the second quarter, everything went Stillwater’s way. Mueller put the Warriors on the board with a one-yard run. The PAT kick by Landen Staie made it 7-6 Warriors.
Stillwater struck again just 12 seconds later. The Wolverines fumbled the ensuing kickoff. On the first play after the turnover Mueller connected with Lukas Lilcas to extend the Warriors’ lead to 14-6 after Staie’s kick.
W-LG tied the game with 2:50 to go in the half on a four-yard scoring run from Allen. Allen passed to Jack Welch for the two-point conversion. It was the last points of the day for the Lakers.
Stillwater took the lead for good with 36 seconds left in the half. Mueller barreled in from 14 yards away and Staie added the extra point to send the Warriors to the break with a 21-14 edge.
Stillwater put the game away in the second half. In the third, Lilac found the end zone on an 11-yard run to make it 27-14.
Brody Burdo then intercepted a tipped ball at the one-yard line and fell into the end zone to extend the Stillwater lead to 34-14 after Staie’s kick.
The Warriors rounded out the scoring with a Mueller one-yard run and Staie extra point kick.
Lilac finished with 157 yards on 18 carries to lead the Stillwater ground attack. Mueller added 136 yards on 23 touches.
Stillwater is now 9-1 on the season and advances to the state quarterfinals next weekend against Moriah.
Warrensburg-Lake George ends the season 9-1 and has compiled a 21-2 mark over the last two seasons since merging.
