Pike Valley fumbled 7 times and had 2 turnovers. Mankato fumbled once and had no turnovers. Defensively, Kade Odell led the panthers with 8 solo tackles and 1 assist. Kraus had 6 solos and 1 assist, Brock Hanel 2 solos, 4 assists and 1 interception, Stewart 3 solos and 1 assists and Isaacson 2 solos and 2 as- sists. Pike Valley football coach Don Melby said, "Special teams were huge this game. Keith Blanding returned 2 punts for touchdowns and the rest were kicked out of bounds short which gave us great field position. The defense was also very solid again." Melby evaluated Mankato's per- formance and said, "Mankato has im- proved and played very hard but so have we. They threw a couple of nice screen passes and their backs ran very hard. They are just a little young yet and will get much better with time." "We played well defensively with the exception of a couple of plays,' said Melby. "We controlled the line of scrimmage for most of the game on both sides. Offensively, we played fairly well but we missed some block- ing assignments and we can't afford to drop the ball 7 times. We must do better than that." .eyville-B & B Pike .ey in regionals & B Falcons eliminated the 'Panthers 34-8 Saturday in playoffs at Baileyville. touchdowns first quarter for the Falcons. scored on a 2-yard run, in a 30-yard pass from Brett and on a 5-yard run. also ran in a 2-point conver- are 20-0 B & B after Kraus got the Panthers on the the second quarter with a 2- plunge.

They scored 20 points in the first quarter and we never recov- ered." Melby assessed the performance of B & B and said, "B & B has an excel- lent team and they are very physical and quick on the line" of scrimmage. They totally controlled the line of scrim- mage and shut down our offense. They took advantage of our mistakes and showed why they are now 10-1." Melby continued, "Defensively, we missed on a couple of plays we knew were coming and we struggled to tackle their backs cleanly. We played well at times but made too many mistakes. Offensively, we did very little all day long and couldn't get in any rhythm. We put our defense in bad spots all day long and it hurt them. Our special teams were also not as good as they have been." Pike Valley closes the season with an 8-3 record and 5-1 in the league. Randall received about an inch of snow Saturday. A Randall native, Vaughn Flinn, died early last week in Texas.
