Lamoree Runs Wild Over Lutheran High Northeast

By | August 26th, 2016|Categories: Football, Game Stories|Tags: , |

Tanner Lamoree ran up and down the field against Lutheran High Northeast in the season-opener for both teams Friday night at Veteran’s Memorial Park. Lamoree rushed for 316 yards and scored three touchdowns to help Cross County run all over the Eagles, especially in the second half, and forge a 35-13 victory. TOP PLAYS OF THE NIGHT: Lamoree’s 83-yard touchdown run got the Cougars on the board and seem to turn the momentum their way the rest of the game. Lamoree gained 127 yards the first half and a workhorse-like 189 yards on 29 total carries “He’s a great kid and a great running back,” Cross County coach Ty Twarling said. “Tanner has a lot of tenacity and toughness about him. He wants every yard and wants to be fed the ball and we’re going to continue to do that.” The Cougars also plan to run behind a solid offensive line, led by Hunter Miller, a 6-4, 275-pound tackle who blew holes open like a stick of dynamite all night. “When you’ve got that kind of line in front of you, it makes it pretty easy,” Twarling said. “These guys have been starting since they were freshmen and they’ve been working hard. Their goal is to continue what they did tonight and fight on through the season.” Lamoree’s first score cut the lead to 13-6 with 7:46 left in the first half. “That really got the offensive line tuned in,” Twarling said. “They really got going after that so it was huge for us.” Cross County quarterback Grant Hollinger hit senior running back Trae Meysenburg for a 17-yard strike to tie it at 13-13, and Hollinger later on scored from the two to put the Cougars on top 20-13 with 1:02 left in the third quarter. Lamoree added touchdown runs of 17 and 53 yards to help the Cougars salt the game away in the fourth quarter. TOP DEFENSIVE PLAYS: Cross County held the Eagles to 158 yards in the first half and just 27 yards rushing in the second half. Cougar defensive back Colton Beebe had two interceptions for Cross County. “Colton has great instincts for us,” Twarling said. “He keeps trying to trust his reads and is doing a good job of it. Defensively, we just started to trust what our scheme was trying to do. And we started hitting, that was the key.” OVERALL: Twarling was pleased with his team’s first game in 11-man football this year. “Our senior leadership has led us through some adversity coming from 8-man to 11-man,” Twarling said. “It’s a little different. Lutheran High came out and his us in the mouth right off the bat and out guys did a nice job getting after it and executing on offense.” EARLY MOMENTUM: Lutheran High got off to a 13-0 lead thanks to a 29-yard pass from quarterback Heath Koehler to Riley Berner and a 45-yard run by Berner early on. Running back Hunter Speir led the Eagles with 102 yards rushing on 15 carries. “We had some things snowball on us like penalties,” Lutheran High coach Darin Suckstorf said. “We got into situations that we didnt want to be in. We had guys cramping and we just stopped executing. Cross County did a good job and they looked like they were in better shape than we were. They executed their plays very well at times. We just got beat by a better team tonight.” Cross County (1-0) 0 6 14 15 _ 35 Lutheran High (0-1) 13 0 0 0 _ 13 FIRST QUARTER LH: Riley Berner 45 run, (kick failed).
