Garret blanks Lakeland in football action

Tanner Burns passed for two touchdowns and ran for a third in leading Garett to a 32-0 victory over visiting Lakeland last Friday night in NECC football.

With his Railroader club already up 11-0 late in the first half, Burns dove over the goal line from two yards out to extend the margin to 18. A Laker turnover gave the ball back to Garrett just before the intermission and the Railroaders took advantage when Burns connected with Kordell Kessler on a 19-yard touchdown pass. Sam Waterhouse’s PAT put the Railroaders up 25-0 at the break.

Burns capped off his brilliant night with a 72-yard scoring strike to Kessler late in the third period. Burns finished the game with 11 completions for 205 yards. Kessler caught six of those aerials for 168 yards.

Eli Wallace gained 49 yards on 13 carries and Austin Evans 46 on 10 for Lakeland.

The loss dropped the Lakers to 1-3 overall and to 0-1 in the NECC. They host Angola this Friday at 7 p.m.
