Twin Cedars improves to 5-0 with 52-22 win Over Meskwaki

Brent Parker threw touchdown passes to five different receivers last Friday night as Twin Cedars raced past Meskwaki 52-22. The Sabers improved to 5-0 on the season. They will host district five co-leader HLV Friday night (tonight) at 7 p.m. The winner will be well on their way to the district title.

Parker threw five touchdown passes in the first half. He completed a 10-yard touchdown pass to Coy Moore that opened the scoring. Parker threw two touchdown passes to Otis Roby in the first half. Roby scored on a 27-yard pass play and a 19-yard pass play. Garret Pettyjohn was on the receiving end of a 37-yard touchdown pass. Hunter Embray scored on a 21-yard touchdown pass from Parker.

Twin Cedars was able to score on three of the five two-point conversion attempts. Moore scored on a pass from Parker. Tim Loeffler ran for the other two two-point conversions. The Sabers built a 36-0 lead. Meskwaki scored with less than 30 seconds left in the second quarter to make the halftime score 36-8.

Parker hooked up with Drew Carlson on a 53-yard touchdown pass early in the third quarter. He also connected with Carlson for the two-point conversion that made the score 44-8.

Meskwaki answered with two scores that cut the lead to 44-22. The Sabers added one more score when Parker hit Pettyjohn with a 14-yard scoring pass. Moore once again caught a pass for the two-point conversion that made the score 52-22.

β€œI thought that we played really well in the first half,” stated coach Aaron Allspach. β€œIn the second half we had some costly turnovers, penalties, missed tackles, and mental errors that allowed them to get a couple of scores. Give Meskwaki credit. They played hard the entire game. They never hung their heads. We need to run the ball a little bit better, and our run defense needs to improve.”
