Prep football: Ottumwa vs. Waukee

Kie Glosser (4) runs with the football up the field for the Ottumwa Bulldogs as Simon Loftsgard (15) looks to make the stop for the Waukee Warriors.

WAUKEE — Blaze Rominger and Kie Glosser each caught a touchdown pass, but the Ottumwa High School football team allowed the most points in a game in school history in a 74-12 loss to Waukee in a Class 4A District 6 contest Friday at Waukee Stadium.

The Bulldogs broke a 102-year-old mark that was set against Oskaloosa in 1917. Ottumwa turned the ball over seven times, though the Bulldogs did recover three fumbles.

Rominger hauled in a 27-yard touchdown reception from Adam Denniston in the second quarter, then Glosser caught a 9-yard score in the third. Waukee led 68-6 at halftime.

Alexander Linquist rushed 10 times for 131 yards and two touchowns for Waukee (4-3, 3-0 district), and the Warriors returned two punt returns for touchdowns. Quarterback Mitch Randall, who grew up in Ottumwa rushed for 45 yards and a pair of scores, but threw just two passes.

Denniston completed 3 of 11 passes for 55 yards in the Bulldogs’ sixth straight loss (1-6, 0-3). Andy Palma, Isaac Eaton and Jesus Jaime all recovered fumbles.

Ottumwa hosts Des Moines East for Senior Night next week.
