Andale wins 30th consecutive shutout game
HESSTON, Kansas (Catch it Kansas) – A strong defensive start set the tone for Andale as the Indians won a school-record 30th straight game on Friday, knocking out Hesston 48-0.
Senior Easton Landers got things started quickly, hopping past a Hudson Ferralez pass and returning it for a six pick in the game’s opener. The turnovers continued in the second practice, after Hesston led inside the 5 but saw their most promising possession in the game end in a fumble.
Andale turned that into a long haul topped by a score from Cody Parthemer, his first of two at the half, with the quarter ending 14-0 in favor of Andale.
The Indian defense then got back to work, forcing a turnaround on the downs followed by a stuck punt on back-to-back possessions, both leading to scores to extend it to 28-0. A third turnaround in the first half would occur on a fumble on the return from the next kick-off, but Hesston forced a 4th save to end that practice.
The momentum didn’t materialize for the Swathers however, with them punting and Andale adding another score before the halftime buzzer sounded, this time Wyatt Spexarth taking to the air to find Noah Bruce for a other score.
The shutout is the second in a row for the Indian defense, and they will look to continue against Trinity Academy next Friday night. Hesston will travel to compete with Halstead in search of their second win of the year.
