3 Teedees To Key 588-Yard Attack
With the offense unleashing a 558 yard attack, the M&M Timberjacks improved to 4-0 on the season with a 46-28 win over the Outagamie Outlaws Saturday night. The lone unbeaten team in the WSFL, the Timberjacks were sparked by a superb ground game that totaled 477 yards and six scores.
Ryan LaCount rambled for 241 yards on 23 carries and scored 3 touchdowns, Mike Hansen 19 carries for 101 yards and two scores, Nico Fulsom 9 rushes for 77 yards and Earl Uhl 5-55. Through the air, the Timberjacks completed 3 of 12 passes for 81 yards. Hansen hit 2 of 7 tosses for 69 yards and LaCount 1 of 5 for 12 yards and an interception.
Trailing 7-0 early following a return of 80 yards for points of a LaCount fumble by Ryan VanAsten, the Timberjacks regrouped for a 23-7 halftime edge. Hansen scored on runs of 2 and one yard, LaCount bounced in from 9 yards and Fulsom booted a 22 yard field goal for that cushion at intermission. The short runs by Hansen capped scoring drives of 65 and 61 yards.
The Outlaws closed within 23-14 on a pass from Alex Whitney to Steve Peters, but the Timberjacks used 4th quarter scoring runs of 3 and 8 yards by LaCount to go up 38-14.
Whitney tried keeping the Outlaws close with scoring tosses to Peters and Corby Ruth, before an 8 yard scamper by Fulsom iced the win for the Timberjacks.
Fulsom had one catch for 62 yards, which set up a second quarter scoring run by Hansen.
On the defensive side of the ball, Justin Baker registered 9 solo tackles, including one for a loss. Uhl added 6 solos and an assist while Eric Krautkramer and Kyle Adams chipped in with 4 solos each. Josh Schwittay had 1.5 sacks, Willy Cornelius one and Dave Clarke a half sack. Dacota Long had the lone interception for the Timberjacks.
The Timberjacks will return to the football field Saturday with a 2pm game against Washington County in West Bend.
