The Diggers Won their Homecoming game Friday night at Golddigger Stadium. With outstanding play by all the Diggers there were 4 that shined bright on Friday night, Lucas Gerding, Ty Judge, Ben Sanchez and Christian Lemishko.
Lucas dominated on both sides of the ball scoring 3 TD’s on Offense and racking up 182 receiving yards. He also had 3 tackles on defense a fumble recovery and an interception in the 4th quarter to seal the Diggers Homecoming victory.
Ty had a record day on offense completing 19 passes for an incredible 355 yards. He also led the team in scoring with his 4 TD passes, 3 to Gerding and 1 to rising star Ben Griffin.
Sanchez had a great day on both sides of the ball, but his ability to create turnovers when the Diggers needed them is what made him the defensive player of the game. Racking up 3 interceptions in a season is a great feat for any defensive back but Ben had 3 picks in one game setting up the Diggers for a big win on their Homecoming.
Christian was the go to guy on special teams. He was able to pin the Bulldogs deep with his booming kickoffs, which averaged 46.1 yards a kick. He also led the team in Return yards on Kickoff’s and Punts. He also led the team in tackles on his own Kickoffs.
The Golddiggers face off with the Summit Tigers this week in another Home game at Golddigger stadium on Friday night at 7:00 pm.
