Paynesville Press - September 22, 2004

Albany rushes past Dogs

By Michael Jacobson

The Albany Huskies ran for 313 yards and defeated the Bulldogs 42-13 in a nonconference football game on Friday in Albany.

Albany, a traditional state power, was led by senior running back Ben Douvier, who rushed for 169 yards and three touchdowns and also caught a 57-yard touchdown pass.

In the first half, Paynesville (0-3) was held to 60 yards on 17 plays, punting five times, while Albany ran 38 plays for 213 yards, scoring touchdowns on three out of five possessions.

Leading 21-0 at halftime, Albany scored on two big plays in the third quarter. On their second play of the half, Douvier scored on a 38-yard run. On their next possession, they scored again on the second play, this time a 57-yard catch by Douvier.

The Bulldogs drove deep into Huskies' territory on their next possession, but an interception in the end zone ended that drive.

The Bulldogs scored touchdowns on their first two plays of the fourth quarter.

Albany snapped the ball over their punter's head during their first possession of the quarter, giving the ball back to the Dogs deep in their territory. Junior Aaron Bachman scored on the next play for Paynesville, running into the end zone from four yards out.

Albany fumbled again on their next possession, and the Dogs capitalized again on their next play, as junior Sean Glenz hit junior Aaron Braun with a 39-yard pass on a flanker reverse pass play.

Albany (2-1) fumbled again on their next possession, but Paynesville fumbled it right back to Albany, who proceeded to score again to make the final score 42-13.

This week, the Dogs will begin their conference slate in the West Central Conference South when they play at Lac Qui Parle Valley on Friday, Sept. 24, at 7 p.m.
