Loggers top Mules 50-0
November 14, 2019
The Wahkiakum Mule's 2019 football season came to an end in a 50-0 loss to top-ranked Onalaska Loggers last Friday night in the opening of the Class 2B football playoffs.
The Loggers scored twice in the first quarter and twice in the second to lead 28-0 at halftime.
While the Mules lost, Coach Eric Hansen was pleased with the young team's effort.
"Our kids played hard, much better than last week against Winlock," Hansen said. "I was proud of them. They didn't back down."
Onalaska's defense kept the Mules under control, holding the Mule ball carriers to 29 yards. Sophomore quarterback Gabe Moon completed six of 20 passes for 44 yards. Chase Heagy caught two for 19 yards; Zach Brandon caught one for 18 yards, and Braxton Johns, Jake Leitz and KC Berry each caught a pass.
"We struggled on offense," Hansen said. "Gabe Moon was a tough little nut for the pressure he was under."
On defense, Leitz had 14 tackles and three assists; Eli Moon had 5/3 and Zayne Meneou 3/6.
The Mules lose three seniors--Berry, Meneou and DJ Tow. With a large group of juniors and sophomores moving up, next season could be different.
Onalaska will host Brewster this Friday, 6 p.m., in the opening round of the state Class 2B Playoffs.
