GOESSEL: Bluebird football wins at the half
After both teams traded touchdowns, Goessel dominated the football game at Fairfield high School Friday. This was the first district game for both teams, and Goessel won, 60-12.
From deep at Goessel’s own end of the field, John Berkholz broke free for a 73-yard sprint and Neal Brubaker found Weston Hiebert on a pass play for the extra points.
Fairfield ran the ensuing kickoff back 73 yards for a touchdown and the scoreboard read 8-6, in favor of the visitors. Hiebert grabbed another pass from Brubaker that went 29 yards for a score and Cameron Stultz carried the ball into the end zone for the extra points. Braden Unruh got into the scoring column with a 3-yard run and he received a pass from Brubaker for the extra points.
Unruh broke free from the 27-yard line to score again and the Bluebirds led 30-6 at the end of the first quarter. Stultz outran the competition from 31 yards and Hayden Goerzen caught a pass from Brubaker for the extra points.
Unruh scored again from 5 yards out before Fairfield put another score on the board. Stultz plowed his way into the end zone from 5 yards and Goerzen caught a pass from Unruh for the extra points.
Before the half ended, Berkholz showed his speed with a 45-yard run for a score and Stultz received a pass from Tyler Schmidt for the extra points. When the half ended, Goessel led, 60-12, and the game was called because of the “mercy rule” in eight-man football.
