Mustangs' Stampete

Hellwig has big day at QB for visiting Medina/Lyndonville

MIDDLEPORT — Medina/Lyndonville erased an early Barker/Royalton-Hartland lead with 24 second quarter points, then cruised to a 38-22 Section VI football Class B victory Friday night at jam-packed Bruno Pacini Field.

Mustangs senior quarterback Jason Hellwig (249 yards passing) had a big night throughout for the visitors, tossing long, second-quarter   touchdown passes of 73 yards to senior Ben Austin and 81 yards to junior Kyle Barna. He later added a 7-yard TD toss to senior   wide receiver Lonnie Taylor and also had two, 2-point conversion passes.
Head coach Bill Bruning’s Barker/Roy-Hart squad dominated time of possession in the first quarter and led 7-0 on a 33-yard   touchdown pass from junior quarterback Jake Haight to senior Tucker Ruhlen. Haight added the extra point and the hosts led   7-0.
The visitors struck back when senior running Jake Cotriss (12 carries, 171 yards, 2 TDs) picked up his teammate’s fumble near   midfield and ran 47 yards down the right sideline for a touchdown. Barna’s two-point conversion run gave Medina/Lyndonville   an 8-7 lead with 9:20 left in the second.
Haight booted a 36-yard field goal that would have been good from 60 and Barker/Roy-Hart took a brief 10-8 lead. However,   on Medina’s next play from scrimmage, Hellwig hit Austin with a 73-yard touchdown pass, then Cotriss added the two-point conversion   run and the visitors never looked back, leading 16-10.
The next time Medina/Lyndonville (1-1) had the ball, Hellwig tossed an 81-yard TD pass to Barna, then threw a conversion pass   to senior Ben Austin to lead at halftime, 24-10.
Hellwig hit Taylor on a well-executed and well-times pass play to the right side. The 7-yard TD pass and Barnes conversion   pass to junior Dan Barnes made it 32-10 Medina/Lyndonville.
Minus Haight, who suffered cramps and came out of the game, the hosts fought back with back-up QB senior Brett Cole tossing   a perfect 21-yard pass over the middle to a streaking senior Brad Bobbit, cutting the deficit to 32-16.
