The Prairie football team picked up their second win of the season as they won 56-14 over Clearwater Valley at Kooskia Friday, Oct. 14.
The 56 points was their highest point total since a 60-20 win at Lapwai in 2002.
The Pirates piled up 574 yards of offense including 400 on the ground. Both Tim Russell and Ryan Daly picked up 168 yards rushing in the game.
Prairie started strong as they forced C.V. to punt and then Mat Forsmann completed a pass for an apparent 56 yard touchdown to Phil Henry. That was called back on a penalty.
Prairie overcame the penalty as Forsmann passed to Shaun Daly on 4th and 4 for a 19 yard gain to the C.V. 12. A late hit penalty at the end of the play gave Prairie first and goal at the 6. Two plays later Forsmann went in from the 1 for the touchdown then added the 2-pointer on a rollout run for an 8-0 Prairie lead.
C.V. put a drive together as they moved from their own 14 to the Prairie 46 but the defense then stiffened and forced a punt.
Prairie picked up a first down on a 15 yard run by Ryan Daly but 2 plays later fumbled the ball away.
C.V. took over at the Prairie 41 but took 7 yard losses on consecutive plays and had to punt. Corey Schaeffer was involved in the tackle on both plays. The first was a solo tackle of C.V.ís Anthony Prado and on the second he combined with Ryan Daly on a quarterback sack.
On the first play after the punt Prairie ran a spread formation and Forsmann took the ball up the middle against the spread out defense for a 28 yard gain. He then lofted a long pass to Henry down inside the 5 yard line with Henry being tackled just short of the goal line after a 34 yard gain. Forsmann scored his second touchdown on the next play. Russell added the 2-pointer for a 16-0 lead early in the second quarter.
After another 3 and out by C.V., Prairie again moved the ball as Russell picked up 41 yards on runs of 23, 11 and 7. Two 10-yard penalties forced the Pirates into a passing situation and Forsmann was intercepted when he was hit by the defense just as he was throwing.
C.V. returned the interception from their own 35 to the Prairie 30.
7 plays later the Rams were able to score as the cut the lead to 16-6.
Prairie then muffed the short kickoff with C.V. recovering at the Prairie 39.
C.V. moved the ball down to the Prairie 9 but quarterback B.J. Allen was sacked for a 3-yard loss on 4th down by Daniel Sigler.
Prairie took over at their own 12 and got out of the hole two plays later when Russell picked up 59 yards on a sweep around right end.
3 plays later Forsmann connected with Henry at the pylon for a 21 yard scoring pass. The conversion try failed giving Prairie a 22-6 lead at the half.
Prairie took the opening kickoff of the second half and put together another scoring drive despite having a long run called back by penalty.
On the driveís second play Forsmann picked up 38 yards on a run that was called back due to an illegal formation. The end wasnít up on the line.
Prairie overcame the penalty to pick up the first down at the 50 on a 12 yard run by Ryan Daly.
On third and 8 from the 48, Forsmann tossed a short pass to Ryan Daly to the right side. Daly broke a couple of tackles and picked up 38 yards before being caught at the 10 yard line.
Forsmann picked up his third touchdown on the next play as he rolled out to the right and beat the defense to the corner of the end zone. The conversion try failed giving Prairie a 28-6 lead.
C.V. answered with their own scoring drive and conversion to cut the lead to 28-14 with 5:01 left in the third quarter.
Prairie came right back with an 8-play scoring drive that was all running plays. Ryan Daly finished it off with a 25 yard burst up the middle for the touchdown. Russell added the 2-pointer for a 36-14 lead.
Prairie got the ball right back when Daniel Sigler sacked Allen and forced a fumble. Shaun Daly picked the ball up on the bounce and took it 20 yards to the C.V. 20 yard line. A late hit on the end of the play tacked another 10 yards on at the end giving Prairie a first and goal just inside the 10.
On third and goal Russell went around right end for a 3 yard touchdown run for a 42-14 lead.
C.V. answered with a long drive as they moved the ball from their own 31 to the Prairie 5, mostly on runs by Prado.
On fourth down from the 5 yard line, Prado took a pitch to the left but was stopped by Shaun Daly and Seth Crane for a 2 yard loss.
On the next play Ryan Daly burst through the middle and broke into the clear, going 93 yards for a touchdown, one of the longest scoring plays in Prairie history. (We understand Paul Schmidt, currently mayor of Ferdinand, holds the record with a 99 yard run in the early 1980ís.)
C.V. came right back with a 54 yard kickoff return setting them up at the Prairie 22.
Two plays later they tried a pass down toward the goal line that Shaun Daly intercepted at the 3. He returned it out to the 29.
Prairie then put on a long scoring drive for the final touchdown of the game.
Prairie moved the ball out to the 46 where Forsmann passed to Henry on fourth down for 30 yards. Prairie then put in their second unit and they picked up the final 24 yards of the drive. Jon Rice went in from the 3 for the touchdown.
C.V.ís final possession quickly ended in a fumble with Eric Daly recovering for Prairie at the C.V. 35. Prairie then had quarterback Nate Kaschmitter just drop to a knee two straight times to run out the clock.
Russell wound up with 168 yards on 19 carries while Ryan Daly picked up 168 yards on 10 carries. Forsmann added 46 yards on 9 carries as Prairie racked up 400 yards rushing on 46 attempts.
