Football team buries ’Diggers, moves to 4-0
Published: Thursday, September 26th, 2013
Kenneth Myers ran for 120 yards and three scores and the Wildcat defense again fired on all cylinders as the Custer High School football team cruised to a 35-0 win over Lead-Deadwood last Saturday evening at the Prospector Bowl, held at Ferguson Field in Deadwood.
The Wildcats put on a show in the night cap of the event, moving the ball at will on the ground and through the air en route to a 22-0 halftime lead.
“We gave up a few yards in between the 20s, and we’re going to give up yards. We just have to make sure we don’t give up touchdowns,”âï¿½ï¿½Custer head coach Russ Bailey said. “We have been doing a good job of that.”
Custer scored on its first drive to open the game, marching 75 yards and scoring on an 11-yard run by Myers around the left end. The Wildcats went for two and converted on a nice diving catch by fullback Paul Climenti on a pass from quarterback Chase Glazier that was batted off course by a Golddigger defender.
Myers scored his second touchdown early in the second quarter on a one-yard plunge up the middle and Don Holman kicked the extra point to make the score 15-0.
“He (Myers) is playing really well. The holes are there and he is stepping left and stepping right, doing jump cuts to get another four or five yards,”âï¿½ï¿½Bailey said.
