Linton rolls over North Daviess for sectional crown


LINTON — The Miners capitalized on the turnover by traveling 66 yards in nine

plays with Karazsia extending the lead to 21-0 on a one-yard sneak for

the touchdown.  North Daviess started their next possession just short

of midfield, and methodically moved the ball down the field on the

ground. Set up at the Linton 33, and time slipping away inside the

final minute before halftime the Cougars were forced to pass. Helms

had Zach Baker open in the endzone, but Kaiser recovered and

intercepted the ball in the end zone.

Despite the ball being at their own 20, and the game clock showing

less than 60 seconds, the Miner offense wasn’t content with its

three-touchdown lead. Karazsia found Bradbury for a 15-yard pass, and

then Linton decided it was time for some trickery. On the next play,

Karazsia found Grant Stamm for a 25-yard gain to the Cougars 40, Stahm

then lateraled the ball back to Bradbury, who ran 45 yards for a

touchdown giving the Miners a 28-0 lead at halftime. The Miners

outgained the Cougars 285-74 in the first half.

The Cougars received the ball to start the second half, but they

couldn’t get anything going offensively. Meanwhile, the Miners ran one

play on each of their first two drives of the third quarter. Kaiser

ran for a 65-yard touchdown, and then Karazsia found Dane Rupska for a

65-yard touchdown pass extending the lead to 40-0. Karazsia added

another touchdown through the air to give Linton a 48-0 lead at the

end of the third quarter. The Cougars finally got on the board with a

Lengacher touchdown run with 2:12 to play in regulation for the final

margin of 48-6.

Linton will face the winner of the West Washington and Milan sectional

39 championship next Friday.
