‘Hounds breeze past Gold-Burg in six man bi-district showdown

By TOMMY WELLS

BRYSON – Coletyn King did about everything anyone could have asked of him on Thursday night in Strawn Greyhounds’ bi-district playoff game.

The sophomore running back scored two rushing touchdowns, caught a 20-yard scoring pass, returned an interception for another score and tacked on a safety en route to leading Strawn to a lopsided 72-6 rout of the Gold-Burg Bears in Bryson.

Strawn will advance to the regional round and face Jayton. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Trent.

Just how lopsided was Strawn’s win? It was 46-6 after the end of the first 10 minutes of play – with the Greyhounds running just 12 plays on offense.

Yeah, it was that lopsided.

With the win, Strawn improves to 9-2 for the season and, more importantly, advances to the second round of the Division II six-man state playoffs to face either Jayton or Vernon Northside.

“I really liked our intensity,” ‘Hounds head coach Dewaine Lee said. “It was a lot better than it’s been. It was overall team intensity.

“I liked the way the guys played together and talked.

“We had good communication, and that is what we have been lacking.

“I was proud of the way our defense got after them for the most part, but we have to still do a better job on tackling. We over-pursued a few times and let them outside.

“But we can fix that. I was real proud our guys got after them.”

Three years ago, a strong Strawn team was upset by Lueders-Avoca in the first round of the playoffs. Lee said he and his staff made sure that would not happen on Thursday.

“(Three years ago) we did not prepare like we should have, and that was on me,” Lee said.”I will take the blame on that one. I promised myself and the kids that it would never happen again.

    "Physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come... Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity." – 1 Timothy 4:6 and 12.
