Football gets back to winning ways

Happy days are here again for the Glencoe-Silver Lake football team. The Panthers rebounded from their first loss of the season at Homecoming by winning 39-6 at Dassel-Cokato on Friday, Oct. 2 behind sophomore running back Carsen Streich’s Herculean effort.

Streich posted the team’s highest single-game rushing total of the season with 233 yards to go with three touchdowns in spearheading the GSL attack. The sophomore gave the Panthers the lead for good on a 3-yard score early in the opening quarter before buoying his stunning rushing total with touchdown sprints of 67 and 77 yards later in the contest.

“We had these expectations for Carsen,” coach Scott Tschimperle said. “We knew he had ability to make big plays and now he’s gaining confidence in what he’s doing.”

Tschimperle was quick to compliment the play of the Panthers’ offensive line, which often did not appear up to the task in the previous week’s home loss to Delano – pointing out the play of sophomore Joey Cullen, who started his first varsity game at center.

“A lot (of the win) had to do with line play and Carsen himself,” the coach said. “Our linemen made key blocks in the game and Joey really made a nice block to spring Carsen for one of the long touchdown runs.”

When Streich wasn’t running rampant, junior Luke Frahm went about pushing the Panthers to a 32-0 lead with a pair of 2-yard touchdown runs – one coming in the second quarter, one in the third.
