The Cedaredge Bruins stayed unbeaten in 1A WSL action with a 39-13 homecoming decision over the visiting Meeker Cowboys on Friday, Oct. 12.
Three touchdowns from Carter Wasser and another two by Dante Markley provided more than enough firepower for the league-leading Bruins.

Junior Kyle Ward was Markley's top target as he caught four passes for 35 yards. The top producing receiver was senior Carter Wasser who caught just two passes but had 99 yards to his credit. Cade Wasser also hauled in two Markley aerials for a total of 33 yards while Mickey Madaleno caught one pass for 11 yards.
On the ground, Carter Wasser rambled for 156 yards on 17 carries while Markley accounted for 139 yards on eight totes.
In all, the Bruins posted 310 yards of offense on the ground and added another 178 through the air for a combined 488 yards.
Cedaredge outscored Meeker 12-7 in the opening quarter and then scored 27 unanswered points over the next two quarters to build a 39-7 lead. The Cowboys put together a fourth-quarter score to make the final score 39-13.
Defensively for the Bruins, Dustin Stracener led Cedaredge with seven tackles and Carter Wasser had five.
