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.
