GRASS RANGE — Wibaux dispatched previosuly unbeaten Grass Range-Winnett 60-6 in a 6-Man football semifinal game on Saturday to advance to the Longhorns’ first state championship game as a 6-Man program.
Cade Dschaak carried the offensive load for the Longhorns, rushing 19 times for 103 yards and five touchdowns. Tel Lunde completed six passes for 173 yards and three touchdowns, two of them to 6-foot-5 receiver Cobe Begger.
Wibaux jumped out to a 13-0 lead after two short Dschaak touchdowns before Zane Stahl hauled in a tipped pass and went untouched the other way for a Rangers pick-6 to make it 13-6 early in the second quarter.
The Longhorns closed the half scoring 33 unanswered points for a 46-6 lead at the break. They didn’t let up in the second, adding two more touchdowns with a running clock to knock off the No. 1 seed from the Southern division.
The Wibaux defense held the Rangers to just 62 total yards of offense on 37 plays, while the Longhorns racked up 355 yards of their own in the win.
Wibaux will host East rival Jordan next week for a shot at their first-ever 6-Man title and the school’s seventh overall after a dominant run in the 8-Man ranks.
