Jordan Kuhle scored four touchdowns as the Howard Tigers raced past the Tripp-Delmont-Armour Nighthawks 51-0 to remain unbeaten.
"The guys played pretty well again," said Howard Coach Pat Ruml. "Our defense was outstanding, only giving up 31 total yards."
Kuhle scored on runs of 42 and 29 yards, returned a kickoff 78 yards for another touchdown, and was on the receiving end of a 14-yard scoring strike from Gunner Gilbertson.
Isaiah Glanzer scored on runs of six and 16 yards in the opening period. Glanzer was on the receiving end of a two-point conversion pass from Gilbertson; this was the only successful conversion the Tigers made.
Luke Loudenburg carried the ball 11 times for 110 yards. He scored on five- and 16-yard runs.
Kuhle carried the ball six times for 104 yards. "Our backs ran extremely hard with all three of them getting two or more touchdowns," Ruml said. "We came out strong in the first quarter with some big plays and then kept that momentum going into an explosive second quarter, scoring 31 points."
Gilbertson was 2-of-4 passing for 21 yards.
Nick Pardy had 14 tackles for the Tigers while Bailey Neises had 10 stops.
Shane Koster had 21 yards rushing for TDA on seven carries. Howard (6-0 overall) will tangle with Canistota on Friday night at Howard beginning at 7 p.m.
"Now we have a huge home game against Canistota, so we have to get back to preparing for another good Cornbelt team," Ruml said.
