Sacred Heart ended its season Saturday night in the 3A Marion substate championship game with a 46-36 loss to top-seeded and top-ranked Hesston.
If there is such a thing as a perfect game in football, Sacred Heart’s Clayton Wetter had it Friday night as Sacred Heart wiped out the Minneapolis Lions 53-6 on Homecoming.
Wetter, a 6 foot, 190 pound fullback scored five touchdowns on just five carries on his way to racking up 172 yards. Do the math and you’ll discover that’s 34.4 yards per carry.
The other Knight scores came on a 61 yard run by Trevor Webb, a 12 yard TD pass from Nick Wuthnow to Austin Palen and a pick 6 late in the first half by Thomas Williams that covered 35 yards.
Sacred Heart led 46-6 at halftime and got into a continuous clock situation with 6:47 to go in the third quarter following the Wuthnow to Palen touchdown.
Minneapolis’ only score of the night came on an 85 yard kickoff return by Gage Mortimer.
Sacred Heart moves to 4 and 1 on the season and will be at home again next week against the 1 and 4 Russell Broncos. Meanwhile, Minneapolis will try to halt their losing streak which has now reached three games when they return home for a game with Ellsworth.
