Le Mars made the long trip to Webster City on Friday night and came away with a 50-29 loss at the hands of the Lynx.
While the Bulldogs did not get the win, Le Mars did put up the first points on the board with a rushing touchdown from Elijah Dougherty. Head Coach Ken Vigdal says that this was an improvement from last week.
As the game progressed, Webster City was able to get their unique running offense going to the tune of 375 yards on the ground. Coach Vigdal outlines what worked in the first half and what changed in the second.
One glaring weak point of the Le Mars offense on Friday was the amount of penalties that the Bulldogs committed. The Bulldogs finished the game with eight penalties for 80 penalty yards. Coach Vigdal says that the penalties were more impactful because of when they happened during the game.
The loss to Webster City drops Le Mars to a tie for third in the district standings. The team they are tied with, Denison-Schleswig, comes to town on Friday night to take on Le Mars. Coach Vigdal says that he expects a heavy dose of the run on Friday when they matchup with the Monarchs.
Kickoff between Le Mars and Denison-Schleswig is 7:00 on Friday night from Jim Lorenzen Field.
