Bremen breaks into win column in Akron
AKRON — Bremen’s defense held Tippecanoe Valley to 206 total offensive yards and a single score, the Lions got 153 rushing yards from Jon Stoller and 105 passing yards and a rushing touchdown from quarterback Kai Slough, and Bremen broke into the win column with a 22-7 win on the road Friday night.
Ryan Zellmer put Bremen on the board at the 7:57 mark of the second quarter on a one-yard touchdown run, Kai Slough punched in another score from a yard out with just 37 seconds remaining in the first half, and Bremen took a 12-0 lead into halftime.
Josh Fuchs completed the Lions’ third one-yard touchdown run at the 4:02 stop of the third frame, and Lucas Schlarb’s point-after kick stretched the visitors’ cushion to 19-0 with one quarter remaining.
Tippy Valley got on the board on Ben Shriver’s nine-yard TD run to cut the Vikings’ deficit to 19-7 with Brandon Webster’s ensuing kick just 44 seconds into the final frame, but Schlarb brought the score to its final margin with a field goal from 25 yards with 3:16 left to play.
Slough finished 6-for-14 passing — including three catches for 73 yards by Zellmer — and Stoller picked up his 153 yards on 16 carries for an average of 9.6 yards a touch.
Josh Fuchs finished with 40 yards on 10 carries and a touchdown, and Evan Wilson picked up 28 receiving yards on a pair of catches.
Tippy Valley was led by Chris Torpy’s 41 rushing yards on 10 rushes.
The Vikings open at 0-2 on the young season. The Lions move to 1-1 and will hold their home opener against Northern State Conference opponent New Prairie next
