"All the fire and intensity were gone," said Enterprise coach Randy Morgan of EHS's 27-12 loss to Asotin on Friday night in Enterprise. "We had negative yards rushing for the whole night," Morgan added.
Asotin commanded the EHS ground game with the Panther defense holding EHS to -4 yards rushing for the game, forcing Enterprise into a one dimensional offense.
Panther receiver Shane Caldwell was the recipient of a John Ausman 53 yard pass to open up scoring for the evening. Josh Johnson's PAT was good giving Asotin an early 7-0 lead. Johnson tacked on the second score of the game on an 18 yard run. His PAT kick put Asotin up 14-0.
Enterprise answered in the second as quarterback Tony Swart found Erik Gilland on a 35 yard pass to pay dirt. EHS's PAT failed, leaving the Panthers lead at 14-6 at the half.
Asotin running back Clay Heger extended the Panther lead in the third on a one yard plunge. Johnson's kick upped the score to 21-6 Asotin.
The Orange and White sunk their final claw in with a 30 yard pass from Ausman to Sam Trickey.
Swart's four yard TD pass to Jake VanderZanden was too little, too late as the Panthers took home the win 27-12.
