Slow start dooms Scoopers as Mitchell rolls to 42-23 win


Gary Matthews - October 12, 2019

MITCHELL, S.D. - A slow start for the Scoopers allowed Mitchell to jump out to a lead they wouldn't reqlinquish as the Kernels defeated Sturgis 42-23 Saturday night.

Both teams opened the game with a fumble before Mitchell would score with 4:27 left in the first quarter on a one yard touchdown run by Nick Robinson.

Leading 7-0, Mitchell would score again with :45 seconds left in the first quarter on a 12-yard touchdown catch by Caden Hinker in the back of the end zone.

In the second quarter, Sturgis threatened to score after a 32-yard run by Trevor Erlenbush set up the Scooper on the goal line. However, a fumble on the very next play ended the scoring drive for Sturgis.

Sturgis would add a safety just before halftime on a muffed punt by Mitchell.

The Kernels would then take a big lead in the third quarter on three scores. Mitchell would make it 21-2 on a fumble return off a blocked punt, a 28-2 lead on a run by Quarterback Austin Kerr, and 35-2 after a one yard run by Nick Robinson.

Sturgis would make it interesting in the fourth, scoring three times to cut it to 35-23. Wren Jacobs would score to make it 35-9 and Dalen Rhodes' 3 yard score with 3:10 play would make it 35-16. After recovering an onside kick, Wren Jacobs scored on a 48-yard run to make it 35-23.

Mitchell would recover the ensuing onside kick and put the game away with a late score to make it 42-23.
