BRUNING – First year co-op Osceola/High Plains raised some eyebrows on the first night of the high school playoffs knocking off one of the more dominant teams in eight man football. On a soggy Thursday night, the Stormdogs handed BDS their first loss in 21 games, 34-22.
OHP’s Dylan Soule became unstoppable within 10 yards of the endzone, scoring four touchdowns, all with his feet. That balance worked perfect with the nasty Stormdog defense that forced three turnovers and held BDS to only one score in the final two quarters.
Osceola/High Plains got on the board on their first drive as Soule bulldozed in from one yard out. BDS would respond on their first drive as QB Dylan Domeier gunned a 31 yard strike to Kameron Dickson on fourth down for a touchdown. On the next BDS drive, Stormdog Carson Watts grabbed a screen pass for the interception and raced 50 yards for the pick six.
In the second quarter, Domeier would connect with Logan Schroeder from 45 yards out. OHP would answer on their next drive as Soule scored his second one yard touchdown. Just before the end of the second quarter, Domeier on a hail mary was picked off in the endzone by Keaton Van Housen.
BDS would respond in the third quarter as they ran their way down the field on the opening drive, capping it off with a five yard scamper by Domeier. On the ensuing drive by OHP, forced to punt Domeier fumbled it for BDS and gave it right back to the Stormdogs. Osceola/High Plains capitalized on another turnover as Soule ran into the promise land from three yards out.
The Eagles would get their only turnover to start the fourth quarter as Aaron Mick stepped in front of a Soule pass for the interception. However, the Stormdogs ran out most of the fourth quarter and would score one final time for good measure as Soule ran for a six yard touchdown.
Osceola/High Plains moves on to face Lutheran High Northeast in the second round next Wednesday in Osceola.
