Football team blasts Pine Ridge

Published: Thursday, October 24th, 2013

If the Custer High School football team’s offense had never stepped on the field last Friday night in Pine Ridge, the Wildcats still would have won by four touchdowns.
Cornerback Coltan Hall returned two Thorpe interceptions for touchdowns and Joel Thomsen added a pick six of his own and a punt return for a score in Custer’s 53-0 romp over Pine Ridge in a game that was called in the third quarter due to the mercy rule. Custer led 47-0 at halftime.
“Defensively, we shut them down,” Custer head coach Russ Bailey said. “The kids got into their drops and sat in them well. Coltan did a good job of getting his hands on the ball. The light bulb has kind of gone on for him.”
The Wildcats did whatever they wanted to on offense, averaging 8.3 yards per carry while churning out 226 yards on the ground. Kenneth Myers accounted for 133 of those yards on only 12 carries while scoring two touchdowns. The Wildcats never punted in the game.
“We ran the ball well and threw the ball well. We tried to mix it up and be balanced. We didn’t try to do anything special,” Bailey said.
All four of the passes quarterback Chase Glazier completed went for scores, including one 45-yard strike to Clayton Wahlstrom and one 37-yard toss to Grayson Trandem. Glazier finished with 99 yards passing.
