Cheney defensive back Calvin Berstler (11) hauls down a Sandpoint runner for one of his nine tackles in the Blackhawks 35-13 road win over the Bulldogs.
In all its preparation to take on Cheney last Friday night, the Sandpoint Bulldogs might have overlooked a key part of the Blackhawks offense – Austin Kautzman.
That was a crucial mistake because all the senior tailback did was rush for 151 yards and three touchdowns – including a 94-yard kickoff return en route to Cheney’s 35-13 road win. The win not only ended a two-game losing skid for the Blackhawks, moving them to 2-3 overall, but served as a reminder of what the team is capable of doing.
“We definitely can run the ball when we want to,” head coach Jason Williams said.
