KIBBIE DOME — For the second year in a row the Wallace Miners opened their White Pine League conference schedule against the Clearwater Valley Rams inside the University of Idaho’s Kibbie Dome.

For the second year in a row the Miners beat the Rams inside the Kibbie Dome.

But, unlike last year, Saturday’s game was never in question.

As a matter of fact, instead of the dramatic ending that last year’s game saw, this one was never in question as Wallace rolled to a 50-22 win.

Miner Layton Gallagher took the opening kickoff back to the Rams’ 10-yard line and at the 11-minute marker of the first quarter the score stood as 8-0 in favor of Wallace.

That kind of dominance was seen on both sides of the ball as the Miners abused the Rams for much of the first half, but they did have one slight slip up when they allowed a 60-yard touchdown with a minute and a half remaining in the first half to cut the lead to 28-6.

Miner quarterback Erik Brackebusch seemed to take that very personally and proceeded to lead Wallace on a near surgical drive to put the score at 34-6 headed into the intermission.

The Miners found their way into the endzone two more times before the game ended, but they also gave up a few more scores of their own.

No official stats or comments were received for this game.

The Miners (2-0) will stay in WPL play next week when they host the Potlatch Loggers next Friday at Sather Field.
