Panthers bury Triangle Lake

HILLSBORO — Imbler set the tone for the rest of the Class 1A state semifinal football game in the first four plays Saturday.

Triangle Lake received the opening kickoff and was pushed back on the first four plays, finishing the drive with minus 10 yards of offense.

Make that five plays.

Quarterback Kyle Johnson broke the first play for a 34-yard touchdown run off an option play.

From there, Imbler cruised to a 62-6 win, advancing to the first championship game since 2009.

The Panthers dominated every facet of the game.

But, is was the defense that stood out the most.

In 8-man football, points are usually put up on the board with regularity. The Lakers didn’t find the end zone until the fourth quarter.

Imbler had a pair of sophomores leading the way on defense.

Calvin Schaffer tallied 10 tackles in the game, and Tyler Tandy finished eight.

The Panthers held Triangle Lake to 70 yards of total offense in the first half.

On the other side of the ball, Imbler had no trouble scoring.

The Panthers scored on seven of their nine drives in the first half, one of those Kyle Johnson knelt on the ball to end the second quarter.
