SPENCERVILLE - The Spencerville Bearcats football team started the 2014 season off on the right foot by dominating the visiting Leipsic Vikings, 51-0, in non-conference action on Friday night.
The Bearcats scored in every quarter on the way to the win. Running back Zach Goecke started the scoring onslaught in the first quarter with a 20-yard catch and run for a touchdown from quarterback Mason Nourse and then followed that scoring drive with another a few minutes later, ending it with a 15-yard scamper into the end zone.
In all, Goecke would score six times - four times on the ground and twice through the air. The other Spencerville touchdown came via an 18-yard Trevor McMichael run. The final score came on a safety by Zach Brown in the fourth quarter.
Goecke rushed for 168 yards on 14 attempts and added 72 yards on three catches on his monster offensive night. Andrew Embrey chipped in with 13 rushes for 126 yards.
Spencerville totaled 437 yards of offense while Leipsic was only able to muster 100 yards in the contest.
