Kyle Summers was at it again last Friday night at Warrenton High School.

Summers, Washington’s senior running back, broke his own school record with 336 yards rushing on just 12 carries in the Blue Jays’ 47-21 victory over the Warriors.

Averaging 28 yards per carry, Summers scored four touchdowns in the game.

Last season against Ft. Zumwalt South, Summers broke the school record with 300 rushing yards.

“The story of the game was the way our offensive line performed. They were tremendous. They did a great job opening holes and Kyle hit them,” said Washington Head Coach Zach Schneider. “Kyle was sick last week and didn’t practice much. Friday was his first day of the week with full pads and he wasn’t at full strength.”

It was a game of big plays for the Blue Jays. Five of their six touchdowns were on plays of 37 yards or more and four were from 60 yards or more.

“We ran 31 plays in the game, and 11 of them were by our JV team in the second half. We were very efficient. There were three plays in a row that went over 60 yards for a touchdown,” Schneider said. “It was about as well as we’ve ever played offensively.”

Washington’s starting linemen were Nick Thiel at left tackle, Brandon Brown at left guard, Ben Heggeman at center, Levi Ray and Michael Watterson platooning at right guard and Austin Subke at right tackle.


Washington accumulated 489 total yards, 406 rushing and 83 passing.

In addition to Summers’ big night, receiver Seth Bollmann had his third straight solid performance to start the season. He had three receptions for 83 yards and one touchdown and also ran 79 yards for a score.

“Seth had another touchdown catch called back for a penalty and had two returns called back, one that went for a touchdown and another where he was stopped inside the five-yard line,” Schneider said.

Quarterback Isaac Lippert 3-5 passing for 83 yards with one touchdown. It’s the first time in three games the Blue Jays didn’t use two quarterbacks in the first half.

“We kept Isaac in there for the first half because we were clicking, the tempo was good and we didn’t want to mess with that,” Schneider said.

Jeremy Monehan rushed for 15 yards on five attempts. Caleb Curran had one carry for four yards and one touchdown.

“We were embarrassed that we didn’t rush for 100 yards as a team the week before against Timberland,” Schneider said. “No matter who we’re against, we should be able to do that. The kids were determined to have a better showing.”

Defensively, Austin Pieper paced the Blue Jays with eight solo tackles and one assist. Nathan Kopp and DJ Quaethem both registered eight solos.

Alex Schull finished with five solo tackles. Nick Cunningham and Jay Jacquin both added four solos and one assist. Joe Meyer, AJ Bartlett, Austin Hudson and Curran each had four solos.

“Our defense started well with two three-and-outs and a turnover,” Schneider said. “We let up a little with a 21-0 lead. We did a solid job taking away their run.”

For Warrenton, sophomore Braydan Chmiel replaced junior Zach Logan at quarterback and connected on 17 of 31 passing attempts for 135 yards. He also rushed for 78 yards on nine carries.

Game Summary

The Blue Jays set the tone early, overcoming a fumble on the first play by scoring on a 73-yard run by Summers.

He followed up with a 37-yard touchdown on the following drive.

Later in the first quarter, Lippert connected with Bollmann on a 60-yard touchdown pass.

Chmiel scored Warrenton’s only touchdown of the first half on a two-yard run early in the second quarter.

Bollmann and Summers promptly answered with touchdowns bursts of 83 and 79 yards, respectively.

Following a nine-yard touchdown run by Summers, the Blue Jays led 40-7 at halftime, tacking on a four-yard touchdown run by Caleb Curran in the third period.

Warrenton scored twice in the final five minutes of the game, both on two-yard runs by Dane Huck and Corey Eckenfels.

Holt Preview

Washington returns home to play Holt in both teams’ GAC Central opener Friday at 7 p.m.

The Indians (0-3) lost last week at home to Timberland, 20-19. They also have lost to Francis Howell 45-0 and Hickman, 30-15.

“Holt is a lot better than an 0-3 team. We’ll have our hands full. If we play the way we’re capable, we can beat anyone on our schedule,” Schneider said. “They’re tough defensively. They run a 4-3 and are strong up front. Offensively, they are a spread team that likes to throw the ball. Their sophomore lefty threw it 45 times for about 370 yards last week. They struggle a little with the run. They played a very good game against Timberland.”
