Watchdog Defense Leads to Win over Canton

Two big plays in the first quarter, one by the defense and one by the offense, put the Watchdogs on the board.  Beresford’s defense then held the Canton C-Hawks in check all game long in a big 7-6 road win on Friday, September 2nd.

Zach Boden and Tate VanOtterloo forced a fumble after a completed slant pass, and Jack Stenen picked up the ball for the Watchdogs with about 10:00 to play in the first quarter.  Then on just the second offense play of the game for Beresford, the Watchdogs successfully completed a hook-and-lateral play for a touchdown.  VanOtterloo completed a pass to Jake Goblirsch, who then pitched the ball to Stenen.  Stenen raced down the sideline for the touchdown with 9:40 in the first quarter as the play went for 64 yards.  VanOtterloo then made the extra point to put Beresford ahead 7-0.

The Watchdog defense was the story of the game as they forced two turnovers and shut down the Canton C-Hawk offense.  Canton did get a touchdown against the Beresford defense, but that was due to a blocked punt that was recovered at the Beresford 40 yard line and returned to the one yard line.  The C-Hawks were able to get a rushing touchdown with 4:52 left in the game to make the score 7-6.  The extra point was no good wide to the left.  Beresford’s offense was able to get enough first downs to run out the clock and not let Canton’s offense have another chance.

Beresford improves to 2-0 on the season and will travel to Winner on Friday, September 9th.
