Cedar claims fifth straight win

WAKEFIELD — All phases of the game were working to perfection Friday for Coach Chad Cattau’s Cedar Catholic Trojan football team.
The Cedar defense and special teams units both scored touchdowns, to compliment the six TDS from the Trojan offense as Cedar rolled to a 62-13 sin over Wakefield.
Along the way, Cedar set a new school record for most points in a game and most points in a half.  The 62-point total bests the Trojans’ 57-0 victory over Randolph in 2009.
The win moves Cedar to 5-2 and assures the Trojans of the District title. The victory also pushes Cedar into the playoffs for the 13th straight year.
The Trojans, who dropped their first two games of the season, are now rated in all four Nebraska High School Football polls.

Kyle Klug’s accurate passing and a ferocious ground attack paced the Cedar offense.
Klug connected on a career-best 5-5 passes for 173 yards.
The Trojans used seven different ball carriers to grind out 305 yards on just 33 carries. Frank Herbolsheimer scored three touchdowns, while Keenan Sudbeck had two and Kyle Klug and Logan Weinandt combined for two more.
Cedar got off to a slow start againt the 1-6 Wakefield Trojans. Wakefield’s speed and ability to hide the football allowed the home team to open the game with a seven-play scoring drive, keyed by a 44-yard Josh Dolph scamper. Wakefield ended the drive with a six-yard Evan Nicholson to Danny VanderVeen TD pass three minutes into the game.
Cedar’s defense shut down Wakefield after that, not allowing another score until a late fourth-quarter touchdown against the Cedar freshman team.
Once the Trojans finally got the ball, it didn’t take them long to take control. Kyle Klug hit Logan Weinandt over the middle. Logan then bolted by the defense on the 56-yard TD play.
Cedar took the lead as the first quarter wound down, scoring when senior running back Keenan Sudbeck broke free on a 69-yard TD scamper. Zach Wuebben then split the uprights to make it 13-7.
Cedar exploded for 36 points in the second quarter to put the game away.

Frank Herbolsheimer got the deluge started when he slipped over, through and around the defense on a 15-yard TD run just as the second quarter started.
The Cedar defense then  held Wakefield to a three-and-out. Frank Herbolsheimer returned the punt 25 yards for the score.
It didn’t take long for Cedar to find paydirt again as Keenan Sudbeck broke free on a nine-yard TD run the next time the Trojans had the ball.
The Cedar defense got into the act next as Tyler Loberg grabbed an errant pass out of the air and rumbled 25 yards with it to the goal line.
Cedar finished off the half in grand style as Klug once again found Weinandt open and hit him on a 57-yard TD strike. Grant Dickes then booted the extra point to put Cedar up 49-6 at halftime.
Two more big runs resulted in two more scores for Cedar in the third quarter. Keenan Sudbeck broke loose on a 56-yarder to score, while Frank Herbolsheimer side-stepped the defense on a 46-yard scoring run.
