Fumble recoveries lead to 38-8 win for New Holstein over Valders

New Holstein's Hayden Lisch (24) intercepted this fourth-quarter pass vs. Valders.

New Holstein’s defense set up the offense nicely in the first half of Friday night’s football game at Valders, won by New Holstein 38-8.

The Huskies turned three fumble recoveries into 21 points in the first half on their way to a 31-0 halftime lead.

The first of those turnovers was immediately turned into a touchdown. On the fifth play from scrimmage in the game, Husky linebacker Cody Abler wrestled the ball away from a Valders running back and raced 41 yards for a touchdown. Cohen Barajas added the first of his five extra points in the game and the Huskies led 7-0.

Barajas booted a 25-yard field goal on New Holstein’s next possession. A fumble recovery by Zander Casper led to a 45-yard touchdown run by sophomore Quinn Strobl and a 17-0 Husky lead as the first quarter ended.

Abler scored on a 1-yard run early in the second quarter. Zander Totzke’s fumble recovery then set up a 14-yard scoring pass from Henry Schnell to Noah Hausler and a 31-0 New Holstein lead.

The lone score for New Holstein in the second half was an electric one—a 60-yard run by Schnell.
