JV wins

ATLANTIC — The Creston/O-M junior varsity football team defeated Atlantic Monday night, 22-6, to improve to 2-0 for the season.

The Panthers scored in the first quarter on a 4-yard run by quarterback Cole Strider, who threw to Colby Burg for the two-point conversion. In the second quarter Burg caught a 43-yard touchdown pass from Strider and Gage Skarda ran a two-point conversion.

The Panthers took a 22-0 halftime lead on another TD pass to Burg for 42 yards.

Atlantic scored in the third quarter on a sweep to make it 22-6 for the final score of the game.

Strider led the rushing game with 55 yards, while Briley Hayes added 30 yards and Skarda had 28. Strider was 6 of 13 passing for 115 yards.

“Strider and Burg had great nights,” Creston/O-M coach Jon Thomson said. “They didn’t give up the run easy, but it really set up the pass. Tyson Stuart made a great catch for a third-and-long conversion. We stopped them on lots of third and fourth down short yardage situations.”

Payten Bierle had 10 total solo and assisted tackles for the Panthers. Kane Bowers finished with five. Avery Fuller, Skarda and Connor Travis each had four tackles.
