Deyon Loveless and Omar Madkour rushed for 399 yards and 6 touchdowns in Wayzata’s win over the Eagles
After two losses to Champlin Park and STMA, Wayzata’s football team was hoping to bounce back to .500 at the Homecoming game held Friday, September 23rd at Wayzata Stadium.
The Trojans got right to work with two touchdowns in the 1st quarter, the first a 15 yard scamper to the left by Deyon Loveless and the second a 9 yard sweep to the right. Wayzata failed to convert the PAT in both cases and led at the end of the 1st 12-0.
Loveless scored his 2nd touchdown of the night in the 2nd quarter on a 1 yard dive, and N. Stueve added the PAT to make it Wayzata 26, Totino-Grace 0 at half.
Wayzata continued to dominate with another Loveless TD to open the 3rd quarter making in Trojans 26, Eagles 0.
Omar Madkour scored his first touchdown of the evening on a 7 yard gain to make it Wayzata 32, Totino 0.
On the ensuing kickoff, S. Johnson would return the ball 98 yards for Totino’s only score of the evening making it Eagles 7, Wayzata 32.
Wayzata put the exclamation point on the game as both Loveless and Madkour would score an additional touchdown each to make Wayzata 45, Totino-Grace 7, final.
Another interesting play included a long pass completion from Cole Heilbrun to Jack Simon that was called back on a phantom offensive pass interference call.
Defensively the Trojans were excellent; DB Alex Hart tipped an Eagle pass and Keyuandre Watkins was able to scoop up an interception.
Wayzata travels to Centennial (2-2) next Friday. The Cougars lost 24-17 to Maple Grove last week.
