Brayden DenBurger

Brayden DenBurger had a big night in Seymour. He threw for a touchdown and gained 61 yards rushing as the Sabers topped Seymour 46-20.

After dropping the first two games to open the football season, the Twin Cedars Sabers found a trip to Seymour last Friday evening to their liking.

The Sabers raced out to a big 30-0 advantage at halftime and they literally coasted home from there to beat the Seymour/Moulton-Udell squad 46-20.

Coach Cam Parker’s Sabers was successful by land and in the air.

The passing game netted two touchdowns while the running game added four more scores.

Both of the touchdown passes were collected by Kade Dunkin. The Junior caught a 50-yard touchdown strike from starting quarterback Dallas Clark.

Brayden DenBurger also threw a touchdown pass to Dunkin covering 18 yards.

Clark was 7-of-14 passing for 155 yards of offense. DenBurger was 1-of-1 passing as was Dunkin. Kasey Clark, a Freshman, also saw time behind center and he was 1-of-3 passing.

Hunter McCombs caught three passes for 81 yards of offense.

On the ground the TC attack was very balanced. DenBurger ran for 61 yards, Dunkin 69 and Levi Messamaker totaled 38 yards.

Messamaker scored on a 15-yard run, DenBurger had two touchdown scampers, the longest coming from 42 yards out and Dunkin had a 50-yard run to pay dirt.

On the flip side of the ball, the TC defense forced one turnover as Dallas Clark picked off a pass and returned it 25 yards.

Leading the Sabers on the tackle charts were Dunkin with eight stops, DenBurger and Clark with 4.5 each and Messamaker with four.
