The Siren Dragons football team had little trouble securing a victory over the visiting Cornell squad last Thursday, Sept. 2, as the Dragons emerged victorious, 49-21, in a solid victory that had the Siren offense racking up nearly 500 yards in a combined ground and air effort.
Siren never trailed in the 8-Player, non-conference match-up, and racked up 35 first half points, including 22 in the second quarter alone.
Both squads were scoreless in the third frame, but the Dragons got back into the end zone in the final quarter two more times, adding 22 points to their total, with the Cornell offense responding in kind with a pair of scores, also.
The Dragons were led in the air by quarterback Nick Webster’s 16 of 27 attempts for 294 yards and four touchdowns. Nathan Thiex also threw three passes, all of which were complete.
As for their ground game, the Dragons added another 168 yards total, including 90 yards and two scores from Lucas D’Jock, with Nick Webster adding a score and 68 rushing yards to his passing numbers.
Wyatt Anton scored twice on Nick Webster passes, with Luke Pettis and Wyatt D’Jock adding scores from Webster’s arm, also.
The Dragons improved to 2-0 overall, but they have yet to have a Lakeland Conference contests yet, with their first Lakeland game set for Sept. 17 at Shell Lake, against the Lakers.
Siren’s original game set for this coming Friday against Mellen was cancelled.
