Noah Tester returned an interception for a touchdown in the first 90 seconds, then Wauseon used three big pass plays in the second quarter for three more scores as visiting Wauseon took home a 35-6 victory over Evergreen to go to 6-1 on the season Friday night.
The Vikings fell to 4-3.
Tester picked off Viking quarterback Jack Etue on the third play on a pass over the middle, running it back 60 yards for a score to put the Indians up 7-0.
That score stood into the second quarter when Wauseon took over at midfield after an Evergreen punt.
On a third-and-seven, Kolton DeGroff took a Cody Figy pass and ran 47 yards for a score that doubled the Indian lead to 14-0.
After another punt, Figy dropped a perfect ball into the arms of Connar Penrod against tight coverage for a 53-yard score.
Late in the quarter, Figy found Sean Brock warding off a Viking defensive back down the left side for a 42-yard gain that set up his own two yard run that made it 28-0.
Evergreen scored in the second half on a Etue three-yard run and Wauseon added a late score on Tester’s 10-yard TD catch.
For the game, Wauseon totalled 297 yards including 216 in the air. Evergreen totalled just 130 yards, including only 67 on the ground.
