Woodbine's Cory Bantam escapes a tackle in the District 8 battle against Ar-We-Va on Sept. 11 in Westside.

Tigers pull away from Rockets

Woodbine broke away from a close battle to post a 76-46 win at Ar-We-Va in 8-Man, District 8 play on Sept. 11 in Westside.

“We made some adjustments in the first half, and were able to pull away,” stated Tigers Head Coach Dustin Crook. “Ar-We-Va is a scrappy team, but I credit our offensive line, as we physically wore them down.”

Woodbine scored on their final nine possessions of the game.  Cory Bantam and Cameron Kline both threw two touchdown passes apiece, while Paul Freund finished with three receptions for 100 yards and two touchdown passes.  Layne Pryor accounted for seven touchdowns on the night including three rushing, two receiving, one touchdown pass, and one fumble recovery for a score.

“I was pleased with the way we bounced back from a shaky start,” stated Crook. “We knew we’d be in for a battle, but our guys responded.”

Defensively, Pryor led the way with 16 tackles, while Cory Bantam (six tackles) and Dylan Hoefer (5.5 tackles) led a solid team effort.  Woodbine’s 3-0 start is their best start since 2005.

Up Next: Woodbine (3-0) will host Exira/EHK this Friday for their Homecoming game at Henry Boone Field in Woodbine.
