09/06/2013 - FOOTBALL: Crete's Gritty Ground Attack Stymies Waverly

By Jeff Motz

WAVERLY---Two ground-oriented football teams, very little passing.

For Crete, that's all they needed as they ran rough shot in a 34-13 victory over Waverly Friday night at Viking Stadium. 

The Cardinals (1-1) had more than 350 yards rushing, spearheaded by running back Hunter Poteet's 152 yards.  Defensively, Crete allowed just 157 yards on the ground. 

Poteet scored on a 3-yard run and the one pass thrown by quarterback Alex McGinnis was a 30-yard scoring strike to Cooper Anthony that put Crete up 14-0 early in the second quarter.  Waverly forced a fumble and recovered late in the quarter, which later set up a fourth and goal and a one-yard touchdown run on a quarterback sneak from Zach Petersen, cutting the Cardinal lead to 14-7.

The Vikings (0-2) picked up more momentum in the third quarter, when they drove deep and went to the air on a fourth-and-six situation from the Crete 27-yard line and wide receiver Josh Palmesano caught the pass in the end zone for the score.  The point after failed and Waverly was down 14-13.

After that, Crete's ground attack kicked into high gear.

A scoring drive was capped off with a 10-yard touchdown run from Daulton Stejskal to give the Cardinals a 20-13 advantage.  Crete scored two more times in the fourth quarter, a one-yard run from Vincent Thatcher and a 23-yard run on a direct snap to Jake Harms with 15 seconds left in the game.

Dayne Schlamann led all rushers for Waverly with nine carries on 56 yards.
