LOHN – The Class A Division II No. 10 Richland Springs Coyotes made quick work of the Lohn Eagles, 56-0, Thursday night for their seventh straight win of the season and 71st district victory in a row.
Richland Springs (7-1, 2-0), coming off a 54-6 victory over Panther Creek in last week’s District 16-A Division II opener, limited Lohn (0-5, 0-3) to negative-5 yards of total offense — minus-3 yards rushing on 12 carries and minus-2 yards passing with two completions in six attempts. The Coyotes also forced four turnovers.
Offensively, Richland Springs generated 200 yards on just 23 snaps — an average of 8.3 yards per play. The Coyotes rushed for 186 yards and threw for 14.
T.J. Grant led Richland Springs with 55 yards rushing trailed by Jayden Bryant with 49, K.J. Simon with 35, Matthew Rigdon with 26 and Chase Gossett with 11 — and all five scored a touchdown.
Through the air, Bryant completed both of his pass attempts for touchdowns — 10 yards to Gossett and 4 yards to Grant.
Griffin Rigdon added a 70-yard kick return for a touchdown to the Coyotes’ tally as well.
Defensively, Grant recorded a team-high 4.5 tackles with two for loss, while Kelton Tippie added 2.5 tackles, also with two for loss.
Next week, Richland Springs visits district co-leader Cherokee (3-5, 2-0), which is off this week.
