Byron wins big over PEM

By David Richards

The Byron football team improved to 4-3 on the year with a 34-12 victory at home against Plainview-Elgin-Millville Oct. 13.

The Bears led 28-6 at halftime.

"We played really good football in the first half," head coach Ben Halder said. "We played the type of football that we know we can play."

Byron used some trickery to score the win, including a fake punt by Michael Coble that he turned into a 59-yard touchdown run.

"That turned out just fine," Halder said.

Other key plays included a fumble recovery by Riley Kraetsch and a blocked extra point by Nick Brown, who also scored on a touchdown pass from Coble.

Coble completed six of 11 passes for 87 yards and three touchdowns, while also rushing six times for 77 yards and a score.

Ben Stienessen finished with 15 carries for 81 yards and a touchdown, while Bjorn Knutson and Justin Nipper each caught touchdown receptions.

Byron has been competitive in every game this year, except for a 50-7 defeat to Triton in its opening contest.

With the big win Friday, the Bears might be peaking at the right time.

"We're starting to," Halder said. "We're not there yet."
