Old brown shoe.
That’s what the Garden City Broncbusters call the play that resulted in a 52-yard Kahari Foy-Walton touchdown reception during the Busters’ 37-0 rout of Iowa Central Saturday afternoon in Fort Dodge, Iowa.
“The H-back is hidden behind the offensive linemen, and he pops out,” head coach Jeff Sims said of the play that put the Busters up 14-0 early in the second quarter. “He’s (Foy-Walton) 270 pounds, and they don’t treat him like a wide receiver, but he’s very athletic.”
The second-quarter touchdown was the first of five Buster scores in the period as they had 345 yards in the game compared to Iowa Central’s 22. The Tritons had just minus-6 yards rushing and 28 passing yards.
“I think our defense has continued to improve throughout the year,” Sims said. “Last year, they’re the No. 1 defense in the country, and you only have two returners, so you’ve got nine dudes who are trying to figure things out.”
The Tritons had just five first downs and only crossed midfield once, that coming in the third quarter, with the drive ending in a punt.
Holcomb High School graduate Dillon Williams led with six tackles, while the Busters had six sacks, including 1.5 by Joe Jay Smith.
“Dillon is a consistently good presence, once again, and I thought Joe Jay and Rayshawn (Wilborn) showed up,” Sims said.
The Busters also picked off a pair of passes — one each for Jon Alexander and Andreus Price.
“What I like is we’re getting interceptions in the secondary from different guys. It’s not just Meiko Dotson or Warren Saba,” Sims said. “I think coach (David) Overstreet and coach (Caleb) Young do a great job with those guys back there.”
Alexander’s interception came immediately after the trick play pass for a touchdown to Foy-Walton, who caught a second score from quarterback Terry Wilson later in the quarter.
Wilson finished 13 of 22 for 176 yards, three touchdowns and no turnovers. Nigel Kilby had the other receiving touchdown, that coming from seven yards out just 25 seconds after the first Foy-Walton score.
Running back Charles West opened the Busters’ scoring with a 7-yard burst at the end of the first quarter, and kicker James White added a trio of field goals for the Busters, who went to the reserves in the third quarter.
“All in all, defensively, we did a great job,” Sims said. “And offensively, except for maybe a couple of drops, did a great job.”
The Busters play Fort Scott at 1 p.m. Saturday to end the regular season.
