It wasn’t even close. The Waubay/Summit Panthers took their home field against GPL Sept. 5 with the word mercy excluded from their vocabulary, steamrolling the visitors 48-6.

Head coach Justin Harte and his Waubay/Summit squad didn’t waste any time acquainting themselves with the scoreboard as the Panthers’ Grey Tracy and Josh Conner both tallied touchdowns without any successfull PAT attempts. It was GPL’s Dylan Duvall scoring their only TD off of a 29-yard run with no PAT. After one quarter, Waubay/Summit led 12-6.
The second stanza saw another TD score from Tracy, as he received a short red zone pass from Gage Connors, breaking numerous GPL tackles for the eight yard score. With another failed PAT, the score was 18-6 at the end of the first half.
The second half was all Waubay/Summit as they cro-ssed the end markers four more times to close out the game. It was Connors, Tracy, Jake Steinocker and Keith Rudebusch scoring touchdowns to put GPL away 48-6.
Offensively the Wau-bay/Summit Panthers totalled 138 rushing yards on 17 attempts, 202 passing yards on 23 attempts, with 10 first downs.
