Shootout in Mount Horeb

On a frigid Friday night the Mount Horeb Vikings took down the Sauk Prairie Eagles in a battle that featured two high powered offenses.


Mount Horeb’s Quarterback, Max Meylor got off to a quick start on the ground rushing for two early touchdowns in the first quarter.


Down 14-0, Sauk’s running back, Austin Powell wasn’t hesitant in hitting the whole straight up the middle and scampered for a 68-yard touchdown. The run ultimately gained confidence for the Sauk offense.


“Powell gave us a little push that was needed for us early in the game,” said Sauk Prairie Quarterback Josh Holler.


Mouth Horeb’s running attack did not slow down in the second quarter. Matt Blome got his first of three scores of the game late in the second quarter.


“Blome was ultimately too much for the Eagle’s defense to handle,” said Sauk Prairie announcer Tom Schwarz.


Austin Powell had another big run of 47-yards right before the half to give the Eagle’s their second touchdown. The Eagles went into halftime down 21-14.


The Eagles started the second half right where they left off on offense. Josh Holler floated a short screen pass to the flats where he let Austin Powell do the rest of the work for a 41-yard touchdown to tie the game at 21.


“Me and Austin were on the same page on the screen pass. It was a play we try to get good timing on all the time in practice,” said Holler.


After a 1-yard rushing touchdown for Mount Horeb and another long 53-yard run from Sauk’s Powell, the score was tied again at 28.


Meylor threw his first and only touchdown with 2:17 left in the third quarter to give the Vikings another lead at 35-28.


Once the fourth quarter started it was all Mount Horeb. The Eagles had to punt on their first two possessions and Blome had another rushing touchdown to make the game out of reach for the Eagles at 42-28 with 7:19 remaining.


Max Meylor ran for one more score with 1:23 remaining to give the Vikings a 49-28 victory.
