Sully Buttes Football Fires on All Cylinders – Put Tigers in the Tank on way to Victory

The Sully Buttes Chargers took whatever the defense of Ipswich/Edmunds Central would give them, and then some, en route to a 58-8 victory Friday night in Onida.

The Chargers had success going through the air, with QB Nick Wittler putting up a 13 of 15 night for 280 yards and five touchdowns.  Wittler also rushed for 95 yards, and a score.  Grant Johnson was on the receiving end of two of those TD passes, as the senior wideout/tailback ended the night with 169 receiving yards.  Johnson also ran one in, and finished with 53 yards rushing.  The Chargers ended the night with 469 yards of total offense.

Meanwhile, the Sully Buttes defense was stingy, allowing the Tigers 20 yards rushing, and 99 yards passing on the night.  The second half started with the continuous clock-via the mercy rule, and scored on the first possession of the half to end the contest.

Head Coach Mark Senftner said this was the most complete win of the season for the Chargers and it started from the linemen…

Wittler found plenty of targets on the night and Coach Senftner talked about how they were successful in it…

The defensive line was fantastic in blocking passes as the Chargers blocked several passes on the night and Senftner was proud of his D-line…

The Chargers—now 8-0—will play at home Thursday against New Underwood, and the Ipswich/Edmunds Central Tigers finish the regular season at 4-5 and will face Britton-Hecla in the first round of the Playoffs.
