DEXTER — Brogan Myers rushed for 274 yards and five touchdowns, leading Cedar Vale/Dexter to a convincing 66-20 home win over South Haven in a South Central Border League matchup last Friday.

The Spartan junior carried the ball 11 times for his game-high performance of 274 yards. A year ago, Myers had 1,422 rushing yards and 28 touchdowns.

CVD dominated the opposition for a second straight game, outscoring Altoona-Midway and South Haven by a combined score of 116-20. The Spartans — now 2-0 overall — will face their toughest challenge to date on Sept. 20 when they travel to Caldwell for another SCBL contest. The Blue Jays are also 2-0 on the season following last Friday’s 52-6 home win over Flinthills.

Meanwhile, South Haven is still seeking its first win of the season as it currently stands at 0-2 overall. The Cardinals will return home on Sept. 20 to entertain Norwich — 1-1 on the season following a 52-0 home loss to Hutchinson Central Christian.

It was all Cedar Vale/Dexter from the start last Friday. The Spartans jumped out to a 30-6 lead after one quarter of play and extended that to 58-20 by halftime.

CVD eventually put the finishing touch on things with a touchdown in the third quarter that ended the game on the eight-man mercy rule.

In just a little over one half of football, the Spartans finished the contest with 415 total yards, including 368 of that on the ground. Although Myers was the only player to reach the century mark in rushing, Clayton Henderson came up just short with five carries for 93 yards and three touchdowns. Devin Catlin had the team’s only receiving touchdown on a 31-yard pass play from Henderson.

The Spartans defense limited the Cardinals to 194 total yards – 133 through the air and 61 on the ground.
