On a night where Washington celebrated its new turf field and the 40th anniversary of its 1973 state championship football team, the Blue Jays didn’t have an answer for Timberland.

The visiting Wolves outscored Washington 35-0 in the second half, cruising to a 48-0 victory.

“Timberland deserves a lot of credit and they’ll be a team to keep an eye on this season, but we did a lot of things that hurt ourselves,” said Washington Head Coach Zach Schneider. “We missed some opportunities and weren’t very good offensively. We had a couple of turnovers and a couple of three-and-outs in the second half, which led to five scores for them.”

Timberland (2-0) won the game in a similar fashion as Washington’s 1973 Class 3A state championship team won all of its games, playing a hard-nosed style with a solid running attack and a stingy defense.

The Wolves had 46 rushing attempts and only five passing attempts on the night, totaling 385 yards on the ground.

Defensively, Timberland posted its second straight shutout to start the season.

“Timberland has around 160 kids in grades 9-12 in their football program. They brought 56 juniors and seniors to the game Friday night. They have an experienced team,” Schneider said. “Our mistakes played well into their game plan.”

Trailing 13-0, Washington had the ball inside the Timberland five-yard line late in the first half, but lost the ball on downs at the two-yard line.

The Wolves took the 13-0 advantage into halftime.

“With everything that went wrong, we still had the ball inside the five-yard line late in the first half. It could have been a 13-7 game at halftime,” Schneider said. “You can’t miss out on those chances. It could have changed things. It’s frustrating that we let it get away from us in the second half.”


Washington (1-1) accumulated 243 total yards, 144 passing and 99 rushing.

Isaac Lippert and Christian Hardesty both saw time at quarterback.

Lippert was 9-13 passing for 122 yards and carried the ball three times for 10 yards.

Hardesty was 5-8 passing for 22 yards.

“Both of our quarterbacks have done good things at times so far this season, but mistakes at bad times are killing us,” Schneider said. “We have to limit our mistakes at the quarterback position.”

Kyle Summers rushed for 68 yards on 18 attempts. Jeremy Monehan carried the ball four times for 20 yards.

Seth Bollmann went over 100 yards receiving for the second straight game, finishing with five catches for 109 yards.

Austin Finder added five receptions for 26 yards. Caleb Curran had three catches for 14 yards.

Summers led the Blue Jays’ defense with 11 solo tackles.

DJ Quaethem added seven solo stops. Nathan Kopp collected six solos and one assist. Jacob Maerli and AJ Bartlett both had five solos. Austin Subke had four solos. Alex Schull added three solos and three assists.

“Our defense played very well in the first half. They were just on the field too much in the second half,” Schneider said. “Timberland figured some things out in the second half and attacked our defense, which led to 35 points. They just wore us down.”

Timberland had 413 total yards, 385 rushing and 28 passing.

Quarterback Andrew Jehle was 2-4 passing for 14 yards and rushed for 26 yards on five attempts and scored a touchdown.

Seven different Wolves carried the ball at least five times.

Devin McDaniel rushed for 153 yards on eight carries and scored two touchdowns.

Bryce Becker carried the ball five times for 60 yards and one touchdown.

Kyle Fletcher had seven solo tackles and one assist for Timberland.

Game Summary

A one-yard touchdown run by Jehle and a pair of field goals by Brendan Rowe gave Timberland a 13-0 halftime advantage.

The Wolves broke it open in the third quarter on a pair of touchdown runs from 12 yards and eight yards by Devin McDaniel and a 21-yard dash by Bryce Becker, increasing their lead to 34-0.

In the fourth quarter, Robbie Klos returned a fumble 40 yards for a touchdown and Jared Kine broke free for a 50-yard touchdown run.

Warrenton Preview

Washington travels to Warrenton for a game Friday at 7 p.m.

The Warriors (0-2) have opened the season with road losses to St. Dominic 12-7 and Troy, 41-14.

“Warrenton always plays us tough. Two of the last three years, it’s come down to the last play of the game. They view Washington as a big rival and we usually get their best game,” Schneider said. “They’ve struggled in their first two games, but I expect a tough contest. We can’t afford to overlook anyone. We have to prepare, get some things corrected and do the things it takes to get better.”

New Field, Reunion

A ribbon cutting for the new turf field took place prior to the game.

Among those on hand were Washington Superintendent Dr. Lori VanLeer, members of the Washington school board, WHS Principal Dr. Frank Wood and WHS Activities Director Bill Deckelman.

“I can’t say enough about our school district and our community for the support behind our great facility,” Schneider said. “It has to be one of the better facilities in the state. It’s beautiful and I’m tickled to be a part of it.”

Many members from the 1973 team were on hand, as were head coach Jim Scanlan and assistant coaches John Carter, Ray Eickmeyer and Tim Crone.

Before the game, 1973 team members Dennis Brune, Carey Curran and Larry Curran spoke to the current WHS team in the locker room.

“It was an honor to have them speak to the team before the game. I couldn’t have written anything better than what they talked about,” Schneider said. “The atmosphere we had for the 1973 team with the tents set up behind the bleachers was phenomenal. It was great to have them back. That’s what makes Washington so special.”
