For the third straight year the Bishop Miege Stags are the kings of Class 4A-I earning the 2016 championship with a one-sided 53-21 win over Buhler, who entered the contest with an identical 11-1 record.
The Stags’ potent attack was in full effect on Saturday as they scored
46 points before Buhler was able to cross the goal line.
“We wanted to come out and play hard, we heard all week long how physical they were going to be and how they could run the ball,”
Bishop Miege head coach Jon Holmes said. “Our kids took offense to that and really wanted to make plays.”
Miege scored the first points of the game on their second possession less than four minutes in.
With 8:05 showing on the clock, quarterback Carter Putz hit senior Landry Weber for the TD to put Miege up 7-0 and the Stags would never trail.
Less than two minutes later it was the Miege special teams turn to get in on the action. A blocked punt was scooped up and ran into the end zone by Miege linebacker Chase Delger to push the lead to 14 with 6:36 to play in the first.
“That was huge, we’ve been coming after punts all year,” Holmes said.
“On that play we had a senior block it and a senior score on it.
That’s awesome to see seniors step up and make plays in a game like this.”
