Imbler rolls past Wallowa

WALLOWA — Imbler keeps marching right along.

With their 52-6 victory over Wallowa Friday, the Panthers are now 5-0 overall this season and 2-0 in Special District 4.

“We were hoping to come out and play well,” assistant coach Todd Thompson said.

“We wanted to establish the run early on. We had quite a few kids involved.”

The Panthers had their highest scoring quarter of the season Friday.

Imbler put up 46 first quarter points. 

IHS rushed for 289 yards in the opening quarter with three runs of more than 60 yards.

The Panthers added six points in the third quarter, while Wallowa didn’t get on the board until the fourth.

Jaden Bales led the ground attack with 146 yards and two touchdowns on two carries.

Joe Griffin went for 126 yards on eight attempts, while Austin Insko (57 yards) and Cody Swalberg (46 yards) also had solid days rushing the ball.

Griffin is approaching the 1,000-yard mark for the season.

So far the sophomore has rushed for 940 yards on 103 carries. He is averaging 9.13 yards per carry.

Bales is second on the team with 414 yards.

Kyle Johnson completed eight of his 10 passes for 51 yards and a touchdown. Casey Robertson was the leading receiver with 25 yards on one catch.

Six Panther players found the endzone in the win.

“We were able to give some of the younger kids a chance to play. It was nice to see them contribute,” Thompson said.

The Panthers haven’t been held under 52 points so far this season.

But despite Friday’s lopsided victory, Imbler dropped to No. 2 in the latest OSAA 1A poll.

Sherman (4-1) is the new No. 1 this week, even though the Huskies lost to Imbler 72-28 earlier this season.

Sherman defeated Ione 88-46 Friday for its third straight win.

 Imbler will play host to Joseph (0-3) Friday at 2 p.m.

The following week pits the Panthers against the Cove Leopards, before IHS finishes up the season against Pine Eagle.
