The Le Mars Community sophomore football team scored 14 unanswered points over the final three quarters to pull away for a 20-6 win over Sheldon Monday at Jim Lorenzen Field.

The Bulldogs scored first on an Anthony Schimek 5-yard touchdown run in the opening quarter, but the Orabs tied the game at 6-all early in the second on a 2-yard run.

Le Mars rallied for the lead before halftime as quarterback Scott Borchers found Tyler Lancaster on a 24-yard scoring strike. The defense took over from there, pitching three straight shutout quarters against the Orabs.

The Bulldogs added to the 12-6 halftime lead in the third on a 5-yard touchdown run by Brayton Ringsdorf and a two-point conversion.

Le Mars out-gained Sheldon 194-161 in the win, though the Orabs out-rushed the Bulldogs 148-129.

Matt Ferris led all Le Mars backs with 11 carries for 37 yards, backed by Schimek with 7 carries for 34 yards and a touchdown. Ringsdorf ran 5 times for 29 yards and a score and Jared Riedemann added 7 carries for 29 yards.

Quarterback Borchers was 5-of-6 for 65 yards and a touchdown, including the 24-yard score to Lancaster. Riedemann also had 2 catches for 30 yards and Ferris had 1 grab for 11 yards.

Le Mars' defense recorded four tackles for a loss and turned the Orabs over once on an interception by Tyler Smith.

Ringsdorf led the defensive effort with 14 tackles, followed by Justin Carpenter and Schimek with 6 apiece. Lancaster added 5, Riedemann 4, Ferris and Josh Meredith 3 each and Scott Baue 2.
