Behind solid blocking and solid running by Bryce Hofmeister helped the Great Bend High School junior varsity football team ease past Garden City 38-20 win over Garden City Monday night at Memorial Stadium.
Hofmeister scored three touchdowns and added all of the Panthers’ extra points, his first coming from 28 yards out at the 6:09 mark in the first quarter for an 8-0 lead
Quarterback Mitch Kottas and Brock Ibarra also scored touchdowns, with Ibarra’s coming on a swing pass from 15 yards out in the left flat, expanding a 24-20 lead to 32-20 with 3:10 remaining in the third quarter.
“Our offensive line was doing a good job opening holes and our fullbacks, Josh Lopez and Julio Montes, were making some good blocks,” Great Bend assistant coach Jason Ingram said. “We got to a point where we were blowing them off the ball.”
In the freshman game, Garden City scored the game’s first 20 points and rolled to a 44-7 win over Great Bend at Memorial Stadium in the opener of two home games.
Garden’s early surge was keyed by a 47-yard touchdown pass to build the lead to 20-0.
