Badgers end season winless in league

October 22, 2018
The Intermountain League leading Timberlake Tigers continued their domination Friday, ending the regular season defeating the Badgers 55-6 to go undefeated in league as the Badgers came home without a league win this season.

Timberlake, 3-0 and 6-3, and Kellogg, 2-1 and 3-5, will represent the IML in state play, with Kellogg traveling to Fruitland October 27 and Timberlake hosting the winner of a game between South Fremont and Weiser. The Idaho 3A State Championships will be played November 16-17.

In Friday's game, Tiger quarterback Louis Powell hit twice early on, once on a 35 yard run and the second on a 13 yard pass to Joey Follini, who also put up the point after kicks to give Timberlake a 14-point cushion before Badger Anthony Cooper fielded a kickoff and returned it 74 yards for the Badgers only score.

The Tigers put up 21 first quarter points, 27 in the second and seven in the third.

At quarterback, Aaron Scott was 4-7 for 32 yards with one interception, Ty Bateman was 2-2 for 21 yards and Eli Richards went 2-3 for seven yards.

In rushing, Bateman picked up 39 yards on 10 carries and Donovan Varelman picked up nine yards on 10 carries. Jake Jelinek pulled down three passes for the Badgers, picking up 29 yards, and Chris Durette snagged two for 25 yards.

Bateman led the Badgers on tackles with five; Scott, Durette and Matt Morgan each had one.

Timberlake picked up 388 total yards on offense on 34 plays to the Badgers 109 yards in 39 plays, 299 rushing yards to the Badgers 49.
