Denver beats South Hamilton in first round of Class 1A Football Playoffs

Posted: Updated:

In Class One-A sixth ranked Denver meets tenth ranked South Hamilton in a first round playoff game.. both teams enter the postseason with eight and one records.

Denver comes in riding a seven game winning --with a defense that has pitched five shut-outs in its last six games.

The Cyclone quarterback Sam Joerger sets up the first score of the game with his legs... He races 45 yards inside the South Hamilton ten yard line...

After a penalty Sam Joerger dumps a short pass to Kevin Walsh who scoots 15 yards for the score--- it is 7-0 Denver in the second quarter.

Joerger is going to set up the Cyclones' second score---with another long run... This time slick Sam goes 52 yards on this keeper to the 12 yard line.

And Joerger calls his own number on the keeper for the 4 yard touchdown run... Denver takes a 14-0 lead with just 3:56 left in the half.

That is more than enough time for South Hamilton's  Logan Klemp to run wild... The big.6-4 215 pound tailback shows speed and power in stiff arming the last Denver defender on his way to an 85 yard touchdown run --the first points Denver has given up in more than a month...

But that was it as Denver advances to the quarterfinals 28-6
