Second-quarter surge pushes Melcher-Dallas past Tri-County

THORNBURG — Tri-County and Melcher-Dallas spent three of Friday’s four quarters trading one touchdown drive for another. The lone exception came in the second quarter, where 26 unanswered points by the Saints made the difference as Melcher-Dallas earned a 44-20 win in Eight-Man, District 5 action.

“In the first half, we made too many mistake and missed several scoring opportunities,” Tri-County head coach Scott Edmundson said. “I felt we played hard the second half, but the damage was done. Our defense looked good at times, but the big plays got to us.”

Most of those big plays came from the combination of quarterback Alex Mitchell and receiver Chase Wetterling. Mitchell went 16-21 passing for 250 yards and five touchdowns with three scoring tosses going to Wetterling, who caught seven passes for 143 yards on the night.
