EDGERTON — Displaying a well-balanced offensive attack and a crunching first-half defensive performance, Edgerton/Ellsworth — the state’s No. 1 ranked 9-man football team — rolled to 52-0 lead on visiting Janesville-Waldorf-Pemberton.
The Bulldogs scored the game’s final 22 points, gaining momentum after returning a recovered fumble 66 yards for a late third-quarter touchdown.
Prior to that, the Flying Dutchmen scored seven touchdowns and tacked on five two-point conversions.
Isaac Heard (nine-of-13, 153 yards passing) passed a pair of touchdown passes to Casey Schilling — 11 yards and 49 yards — in the first quarter and then Derek Voge rushed in for a nine-yard TD.
In the second quarter, E/E crossed the goal three more times as Omar Lopez returned a punt 70 yards for a touchdown, Blake Jouwstra rushed 19 yards for six points and Heard capped a drive with a six-yard TD burst.
Devin Hulstein (four carries, 103 yards and two catches, 41 yards) scored the Flying Dutchmen’s final touchdown on an 80-yard run early in the third quarter.
Voge (three carries, 44 yards) ran in for a pair of two-point conversions, while Johnny Menning (eight tackles, three sacks) caught a pair of passes from Heard for two-pointers and Adam LaFollette rushed for one of E/E’s successful conversions.
