Jumpers run over Shelby Valley, 49-6

Will Lange has touchdown hat trick as Somerset advances in postseason play

Somerset —  

There are four ways to score a touchdown.
Will Lange did it three of those ways last night and led the Briar Jumpers to a 49-6 win over the Shelby Valley Wildcats.
The game was never in doubt, with Somerset scoring touchdowns on seven straight possessions, and putting the most points on the board of any game this season.
It took just two plays into Somer-set’s first possession of the game for Junior Running Back Bryson Jones to bust through the line for a 53 yard touchdown. After the Wildcats went three and out, Jones tacked on another 23 yard carry, setting up the pass to Cheuvront to the endzone for what would have been the second score of the game but for a block in the back call that brought the ball back to the 20.  
No problem for Tanner Gadberry: he just threw the ball again, this time to Will Lange for the second touchdown of the game for the Jumpers.
A Wildcat fumble after a monster kick from Chandler Dobbs set up the third touchdown for the Jumpers. It felt so good to throw a touchdown pass that Gadberry decided to run it in himself from the 7.
All this took place with less than two-thirds of the first quarter even gone yet.
Two minutes later, after the Wildcats had tried and failed again to move the ball, Lange again took the punt and danced down the field 70 yards for the touchdown.
That was Lange’s third touchdown in under 10 minutes of play. He did it by catching a pass, by running from scrim-mage, and by the kick return. All he was lacking was a pass interception or a scoop and score.
True, the Wildcat team came in under strength: they brought only 26 players from Pike county
True, the Wildcat team is very young.
