The final season game for the Wauneta-Palisade Broncos looked like the first game played, with the Broncs losing their season closer to Medicine Valley, 77-28.

From the opening play throughout the entire first quarter, the Raiders dominated the turf, intercepting the ball on the Broncos first play of the night. Two plays later Hunter Timmons ran 27 yards for the touchdown, followed by the extra point kick to lead WP 7-0.

The Broncos’ next possession went from bad to worse as they were hit with holding call in their end zone for a safety and a 9-0 ball game.

Four plays after the Bronco free kick, the Raiders scored on a 29-yard pass. The Broncs denied the PAT to trail 15-0.

After Med Valley’s kick-off the Broncos were forced to punt. Punter Connor Kayton was rushed, causing him to shank it short.

The Raiders took over on Wauneta-Palisade’s 27-yard line, setting up Medicine Valley for another scoring drive. After three plays the Raiders’ Timmons carried the ball 5 yards for another touchdown and the PAT kick, putting Medicine Valley up 28-0 with only 3:28 spent in first quarter, en route to a 42-0 first-quarter spree.

As the season has gone, little went right for WP during last week’s game.

The Raiders punted to Bronco Reese West who was stripped of the ball as he headed up the field, with the ball covered by the Raiders. Three plays later Med Valley’s Quinten Chancellor scored.

Med Valley’s defense also added to the scoring with a 65-yard pass interception.

Wauneta–Palisade did score twice before the end of the second quarter, with Reese West going 42 yards and quarterback Kayton scrambling to carry the ball in from 65 yards out to trail 49-12 going into the half-time break.

The second half wasn’t any different from the first half with the Raiders taking the kick-off 70 yards for a touchdown and 55 yard TD, answered by Kayton’s 52-yard TD with the third quarter ending 69-20.

Scoring in the final period had Med Valley’s Ty Contrerez taking off on a 60-yard TD run, followed by WP’s Kayton going 19 yards to score the last Bronco TD of the season for a final score of 77-28.

With the loss the Broncos close their 2011 campaign winless at 0-8. Medicine Valley moved their record to 6-2.


No 57 William Werner gets a grip on M.V.’s Contrerez as No. 16 Logan Bischoff moves in to assist with the takedown. The Broncos suffered a big loss at the hands of the Raiders, falling 77-28 in the Broncs last game of the season. Medicine Valley now advances to the district playoffs, topping the D2-District 9 field after going 5-0 against District 9 opponents and 6-2 overall.
