Air attack lifts Sprague

By

The Sprague Olympians on Friday night used a steady passing attack to take down the Celtics at McNary 40-21.
Sprague quarterback Jon Schaub led the onslaught with five touchdowns through the air, two each to John Marshall and Nick Moran.
We just kept attacking and for the most part it kept working,” Schaub said. “The goal is to keep working a balanced offense. We’ve got two great rushers in Devvon (Gage) and (John) Marshall and our line can both run and pass protect.”
The Olympians jumped out to a lead on the game’s first possession and never looked back. Schaub hit Marshall in the end zone for the first score after after a bomb to Taylor Bratton put the ball on McNary’s 19-yard line.
The Olys used a steady pass/run attack to move the ball down field against a difficult McNary defensive line.
Sprague coach said his team looked a little sloppy on both sides of the ball but executed when it really mattered.
“Our big play makers made big plays when they needed to,” Minyard said. “Any time you can put up this many points against a team that is improving like McNary is something to be proud of.”
The Celts got on the board with a 23-yard field goal by Cody Ratliff, and a 2-yard TD run by quarterback Hayden Gosling.
With less that two minutes left in the first half Schaub found 6-foot-5 wideout Austin Johnson on a 61-yard strike that set up 2-yard score by Devvon Gage
McNary’s Brett Hildebrandt scored on a sweep in the third quarter. The Celts added a late score in the fourth quarter when Gosling found Garrett Hittner open in the end zone.
Schaub entered the game leading the Central Valley Conference in passing with 1,025 yards and 14 touchdowns against two interceptions.
