Football: Coleville rebounds with win over Round Mountain
After suffering a season-opening loss against rival Smith Valley, the Coleville football team came back with a 20-6 win at Round Mountain Saturday.
The Wolves, who were shut out offensively last week, piled up 285 total yards, with 240 coming on the ground against Round Mountain.
Adam Reigle led the Wolves with 196 yards rushing and 45 yards passing. Reigle scored on the Wolves’ first offensive play from scrimmage with a 73-yard sweep.
He broke a 6-all tie in the third quarter on a 19-yard run off tackle.
Reigle completed a 10-yard touchdown pass to Travis Babbitt.
The offensive line, led by Eddie Brewer, Chris Newman and Sean Kaiser, did an outstanding job clearing the way for Reigle all day long.
“Defensively I was happy with our effort,” Coleville coach Will Sandy said. “We out-hit and wore down a larger and deeper Round Mountain team.
Brewer (three solo tackles, nine assists and two sacks), Newman (four solos, six assists) and Kaiser (two solos, four assists and two sacks) also anchored the defensive line.
Linebackers Matt Shaw (four solos, six assists) and Andrew Robinson (three solos, nine assists) also made huge contributions to the Coleville effort.
Coleville gets a week off before traveling to Big Pine Sept. 18 for a 1 p.m. contest.
