The S & S connection gave a “Superman” like performance on Saturday en route to a big win over Cloudland. Kyle Sluder and Jace Stout rushed for a combined 295 yards leading Johnson County to a 33-20 victory in the Grasscutters division.
The dynamic duo didn’t need to leap over tall buildings to put up their big numbers. They ran behind some bruising blocks from linemen Nate Dorman and Noah Brown in addition to Nathaniel Walker’s down field blocking on the outside.
“It was probably our best effort of the year,” said head coach Travis Brown. “Jace and Kyle ran the ball well and the guys up front did a good job of blocking. We had a lot of kids play good today. This was a big win for us.”
The Highlanders got on the board first on a 28-yard run by Noah Young.
Johnson County battled back to tie the game on a 65-yard kickoff return by Jace Stout, thanks to a bone-crushing block by Hayden Parker.
Stout dazzled the crowd on their next possession with an electrifying 77-yard touchdown run. Kyle Sluder’s extra point made it 13-6 in favor of the ‘Horns at the half.
The second half would produce plenty of fireworks with most of them provided by Johnson County.
Sluder scored his first of two touchdowns on a 38-yard run getting a pair of good blocks from Dorman and Brown to make it 20-6.
Cloudland countered with another Young touchdown to pull within seven but back came the Longhorns.
Sluder’s 20-yard run helped set up Stout’s 25-yard touchdown scamper to make it 27-13 after Walker’s conversion run, but Cloudland wouldn’t go away.
