It was homecoming week for the Dons as they celebrated throughout the week, but it doesn't mean as much without a win on Friday night.
Visiting Kee High tried deflating the mood at Tom Ryan field. On the very first play, Tucker Colsch fired a pass to junior Josh Walleser for the 55 yard touchdown, taking the early eight to zero lead.
But the Dons who averaged 70 points per game coming into the matchup didn't flinch. On offense they marched right down the field which set up a Wyatt Sawvel pass to Austin Svoboda, tying the game up at eight.
The Dons no stranger to the end zone as Austin Hellman took the snap at quarterback where he proceeded to break a tackle and then outrun the defender to the pylon. Dons took the 16 to eight lead after the converted two-point conversion.
After the first touchdown the defense was in attack mode. Kee High's Colsch escaped the initial pressure but was taken down by Svoboda and Alec Carpenter. The ball would be coughed up and two Dons defenders were right there to secure the turnover.
Shortly after the first quarter ended, Wyatt Sawvel took advantage of a run freeing block from Kendall Becker. From there he did the rest, churning his way into the end zone for his seventh rushing touchdown of the season.
Kee High had no answer on either side of the ball. Svoboda got the carry on the far side, breaking it up the sideline and lunging for the pylon. Officials calling him out of bounds just short of the end zone. But teammate Sawvel wouldn't be denied after busting it right up the middle behind the offensive line for the one yard score.
The Dons took the 30 to eight halftime score and ran away with it in the second half, winning 66-16.
