It’s hard to imagine that a few weeks ago, the Lee Volunteers were 3-1, off to their best start since 1980. Now, two weeks later, they need a lot of help going into their bye week.
Ty Summers was 16-29 for 300 yards and 3 touchdowns as the Reagan Rattlers punked the Lee Volunteers 58-7; ending the game on a 51-0 run. For the second straight week, the Vols gave up 30+ points in the first half, as they allowed 44; the most ever allowed in the first half of a game in the Klosa era, which surpassed.
The defense could really use after their bye this week after allowing 51.5 points per game over the last two.
The Rattlers struck first as Kash Knuttson caught a 45 yard touchdown to put the Rattlers up 7-0. The Vold defense then came up with a huge goal line stand and it led to Freedom Salas throwing a three yard touchdown to Ethan Engelbrect to tie it at 7-7 after one.
The wind at Comalander Stadium was a big factor as the Vols punt went only 14 yards, which allowed Ty Summers to score easily. Moments later, Salas threw a pick six to the Rattlers, who with the ensuing PAT went up 21-7 and it was pretty much essentially over.
The Vols punted the next 5 times they had the ball, not even getting past the 30 yard line. 3 touchdowns and a 30 yard field goal later, the Rattlers went into the locker room up 44-7.
A meaningless second half started with Jose Rameriez getting an interception and a fumble recovery, and the Vols offense started moving the ball down the field. But with first and 10 at the 20, Salas threw an interception, which was returned 80 yards for the pick 6, putting the Rattlers up 51-7. After only allowing 14.5 points over the first two games, the Vols are giving up 37.5 points per game over the last 4 games.
The Vols face Madison on October 18th at Colmalander Stadium at 7:30.
