The Parker Pheasants met up with Deubrook last Friday night in White. The Pheasants put together four solid quarters of football and were able to escape with a 20-6 victory, improving their record to 2-4 on the season.
Early in the first quarter Colby Olson was able to get the offense going for the Pheasants, carrying a touchdown from 38 yards out. Olson also took the extra points which were also good, pushing Parker ahead 8-0.
Defense was the name of the game from there on out, as the Pheasants held the Dolphins scoreless over the next two quarters, getting several major stops in the red zone, and holding on for an 8-0 lead at the half.
Deubrook managed a score midway through the third quarter, punching in a shot from five yards out. However the Parker defense stayed stiff once again, allowing no extra point and keeping the lead at 8-6 Parker.
On the next play of the game Lane Wieman was able to score from 35 yards out after the kickoff, giving the Pheasants a 14-6 lead late in the third.
Colby Olson was able to score once more in the fourth quarter, breaking loose for a 48-yard touchdown, and giving the Pheasants a 20-6 lead, with the defense holding the Dolphins from there, with Parker going on to get the win 20-6.
Parker ran wild on the night putting up 256 yards of total offense compared to just 95 for Deubrook. The Pheasants also forced the Dolphins into three turnovers while committing none. Olson led Parker with 143 yards on the ground while Lane Wieman had 57 and Jack Even 45. Wieman also had a monster night on defense with 15 tackles while Levi Wieman had six and Olson and Davin Fuller five.
‘We played four quarters of football and it was all needed,” said coach Scott Hybertson. “We drove the ball on them all night and capitalized when it counted. Our defense made plays all night and had big stops in the red zone. We need to be focused all week this week to prepare for a good Baltic team. We will need all the support we can when we go to Baltic on Friday night!”
