With a dominating fourth quarter, Pacific picked up its first win of the football season Friday over Owensville.

Leading 21-14 after three quarters, the Indians outscored the Dutchmen 28-0 in the fourth quarter in a 49-14 victory at Pacific High School.

The Indians (1-5, 1-3) led 14-0 at halftime and 21-0 early in the third quarter.

“It feels good to get that first win. I’m happy for our boys. We did a lot of good things,” said Pacific Head Coach George Hinkle. “We can’t be satisfied. These next three games are going to determine what we face when district games begin. We have to continue to play the way we’re capable of playing.”

Festus Preview

Pacific returns to action Friday for a week seven nonconference game against Festus at 7 p.m.

The Tigers (4-2) are coming off a 48-31 victory last week over North County. Other wins have come against Farmington 16-13, Windsor 49-6 and De Soto 34-0. Losses have been to Sullivan 35-14 and Hillsboro 17-14.

“Festus is a physical team. They have good speed and cover the field well,” Hinkle said. “They’re not as quick as a team like Sullivan, but they’re physical.”

Festus relies heavily on its running game.

Corey Carr has rushed for 646 yards this season, including 238 yards last week against North County.

Quarterback Andrew Hayden has thrown for 282 yards.

“We have to defend the edge, bring them to the middle of our defense and not let them make big plays,” Hinkle said.


Pacific accumulated 358 total yards against Owensville, 183 rushing and 175 passing.

Sophomore quarterback Eain Roberts was 16-26 passing for 175 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

Roberts also had a big night on the ground, carrying the ball 14 times for 120 yards and three touchdowns.

“Eain struggled a little early in the season with play-calling, but that just comes with reputation,” Hinkle said. “He’s really starting to understand the offense and what his role is. He had a very good game.”

Running back Kelvin Klenke also rushed for three touchdowns. He totaled 53 yards on 16 attempts.

“Kelvin ran the ball hard,” Hinkle said. “He plays the game hard week-in and week-out.”

Jason Koepke finished with three receptions for 47 yards and one touchdown. He also had one catch for three yards.

Austin Repp collected six catches for 53 yards. Chris Klenke added four receptions for 53 yards.

Tyler Smith, 14 yards, and Shane Henderson, five yards, both added one reception.

Defensively, Scott Roberts led Pacific with seven solo tackles, two assists and one fumble recovery.

Jeffrey Hinkle added five solos, two assists, one sack and one interception.

Scott Brandt and Zach Schlemper both had five solos and one assist. Koepke registered five solos. Andrew Cooper had four solos and one assist. Dalton Voyles added three solos, four assists and one sack.

“Our defense made some good stops. We created some turnovers and gave our offense a short field to work with,” Hinkle said. “We had some kids step up defensively. Scotty Roberts played well. Kelvin Klenke and Andrew Cooper did a good job. Ryan Byron always is solid.”

The Dutchmen (0-6, 0-3) were held to 186 total yards, 180 rushing.

Gage Tayloe carried the ball 16 times for 92 yards and two touchdowns.

Game Summary

Roberts ran for Pacific’s first two touchdowns on plays of eight and 13 yards to make the score 14-0.

Kelvin Klenke scored on a five-yard touchdown run and Pacific led 21-0 with seven minutes remaining in the third quarter.

The Dutchmen scored a touchdown on a 41-yard run by Tayloe. Owensville missed the extra point, but recovered the onside kick.

The Dutchmen scored again on a seven-yard run by Tayloe. Owensville got the two-point conversion to cut the gap to 21-14 with a minute to play in the third quarter.

But, with the game getting close, the Indians responded by exploding for four more scores.

Roberts hit Koepke for an 11-yard touchdown pass and Pacific went up 28-14 with 10 minutes to play.

Roberts then ran for a 10-yard touchdown to make it 35-14.

After a Jeffrey Hinkle interception return to the Owensville four, Klenke finished off the drive with a four-yard touchdown run to make it 42-14.

The Indians added a final touchdown on a one-yard run by Klenke.
