Blance, Kelly run Webb past Halls

For the second week in a row, Webb's rushing game propelled it to victory as the Spartans rolled over Halls, 42-6.

Caleb Blance and T.K. Kelly ran for a combined 276 yards and four touchdowns to supplement a stingy defense for Webb (2-2.)

After an early Webb drive stalled following three plays, Halls took an early 6-0 advantage on a 10-yard pass from Brady Brown to Austin Looper.

Only one other Spartans drive was halted the rest of the night.

On the next possession, Caleb Blance put the Spartans ahead 7-6 with a 15-yard touchdown run on a three-play drive.

The next Webb drive only took two plays before Kelly's 58-yard touchdown put Webb up by eight.

“Our line was phenomenal and we figured out we could run the sweep and trap,” Kelly said. “So I tried to get the hole as best as I could. As you see, [we] had a good outcome.”

A second TD run, from seven yards out, gave Kelly his second score of the evening to accompany 146 yards on eight carries.

A wide receiver by nature, Kelly moved to running back after junior Aaron Blance was dismissed for a violation of school policies Aug. 26. Caleb Blance's 48-yard, second half scamper capped a two-play, 32-second drive that put Webb up 35-6. He finished with 130 yards and two touchdowns, averaging 14 yards-per-carry.

In the third quarter, Halls recovered a fumble momentarily shifting the momentum until senior linebacker Brewer Congleton made an interception.

“We knew if they ran the bootleg we knew they were going to have that route coming in and I knew that was coming,” said Congleton, who also amassed 12 tackles and a sack against Halls' spread offense.

“Our defensive line was really getting hands on people and our other linebackers were filling gaps allowing me to get through holes,” he added.

Rushing touchdowns by juniors Bryan Berube and Dave Matthews contributed to the Webb romp.
