Another game, another rout for PCM football

BLOOMFIELD — Prairie City-Monroe’s football team put it on Davis County early and the starters watched on the sidelines in the second half for the sixth straight game.

The Class 2A No. 6 Mustangs were sharp on both sides of the ball, tallying 393 yards on offense and collecting four interceptions and four sacks on defense during a 68-12 road win.

Isaac Telfer returned two of the four interceptions back for touchdowns and Nick Dredge also had a pick six and finished with two interceptions.

PCM won its seventh straight game. The 2A District 6 win gives the Mustangs their second straight district championship.

The Mustangs (7-1 overall and 6-0 in district play) passed for 170 yards. Reed Worth needed four completions to reach 154 yards. He threw a 67-yard TD pass to Noah Anderson and a 69-yard TD pass to Wes Cummings.

Worth rushed three times for 113 yards and a TD, Payton Strovers tallied 54 yards and a touchdown on four carries and Cummings gained 39 yards and scored two TDs on five carries.

Cole Dustin had six tackles and a sack for the defense. Jarron Trausch tallied five tackles and a sack, Jacob Ponder added 4 1/2 tackles and a sack and Seth Greiner had one sack.

Olin Meinders and Brycen Rogers each had a fumble recovery.

The Mustangs led 62-6 at halftime. Cummings, Anderson and Worth started the scoring with four consecutive TD runs.

Telfer’s first pick six made it 35-0. Anderson’s TD catch extended the lead to 49-6 and then Telfer’s second defensive TD pushed the Mustangs’ advantage to 55-6. Dredge’s 55-yard interception return for a TD made it 62-6 at halftime.

Payton Strovers finalized the scoring with a 9-yard TD run.

This game ends the regular season for PCM. The Mustangs will take a Week 9 forfeit from winless Clarke to finish 8-1.
