DUNKERTON (KWWL) -

Tripoli used a big 2nd quarter to shoot past Dunkerton 48-28 in their 2015 opener.

The Panthers opened the scoring in the first quarter on a 3 yard touchdown run by Carew Vogt.

Dunkerton managed to stay in the game in the early going thanks to a pair of fumble recoveries. The first led to an 8 yard touchdown run by Jackson Hoeft to tie the game at 6 apiece.

Tripoli, however, responded with 22 unanswered points to end the half. Dylyn Biddle gave the Panthers a 12-6 lead on a 12 yard touchdown carry. Then following an interception, quarterback Brayden Biermann scored on a 1 yard sneak, and then minutes later hit Nate Luebbers on a 40 yard strike for a 28-6 halftime lead the Panthers would never relinquish.
