The Mitchell/Spray/Wheeler football team is the only thing standing between Joseph High School’s squad and an undefeated inaugural six-man season.

The Eagles walked all over Harper Charter Oct. 12, coming away with a convincing 31-6 win.

Led by Tyler Homan, Joseph ran 36 rushing plays and completed nine passes for a total of 377 yards against Harper. Homan had 19 carries for 172 yards and scored four of the team’s touchdowns.

Trey Wandschneider had three catches for 57 yards and 1 touchdown, TJ Grote had three catches for 29 yards and an extra point.

The Eagles held Harper to 113 yards passing, 117 yards rushing and a single touchdown.

Homan led with 10 tackles, Guylan Snyder had seven and Steven had six.

Wandschneider had 6.5 tackles, 4.5 were tackles for loss.

“He spent a lot of time in their backfield,” Coach Duncan Christman said.

Wandschneider added two blocked passes and a few hurries, Grote contributed a pass breakup.

Mitchell/Spray Wheeler has two wins and four losses thus far into the season.

While there will not be formal state playoffs in the six-man league, Christman hopes to organize a season-ending game of some type to celebrate Joseph’s success.

The final regular-season game is 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19.
