No slowing No. 3 Mustangs as Prosser shuts out Selah

October 15, 2011 by Roger Underwood  

SELAH, Wash — Benji Sonnichsen considered the question, then provided a completely candid response. “Well,” the Prosser football coach said, “it’s not something we’ve been bad at this year, but we sure haven’t done anything like we did here tonight.” 

The Mustangs did many good things Friday night at Karl Graf Field, but were especially adept at not only intercepting passes, but running with the ball after the theft. Prosser not only came up with four picks, it returned two for touchdowns in its 55-0 CWAC victory over Selah. It was the sixth-straight win for the No. 3 Mustangs after a season-opening loss to Kamiakin, the state’s fourth-ranked Class 3A team, and kept them on track for another league title and Class 2A playoff berth.

“There’s no question that we’re better than last year,” Sonnichsen said, “and we were a quarterfinalist last year.” On this night Prosser (6-0 league, 6-1 overall) looked the part of a postseason force, dominating all facets and producing several long-distance strikes. Isaac Anderson, who had scored on a 3-yard run for a 14-0 Mustang lead, intercepted on the next play from scrimmage and went 26 yards for a 21-0 bulge with 2:04 still to play in the first quarter.

Then after Ryan Fassler hooked up with Abi Fajardo for a 22-yard second-quarter TD, Selah (4-2 league, 4-3 overall) produced its best drive of the night, marching to the Prosser 15 yard line. But this time Danny Raap came up with a pick in heavy traffic, then bolted 95 yards for another score and a 34-0 Mustang advantage.

It was 41-0 at intermission after Raap hauled in a 45-yard scoring strike from Fassler, who finished 13 for 17 passing for 205 yards. James Wildman then started the second half by faking a reverse on the return and then scooted 97 yards down his right sideline for yet another touchdown. Isaac Anderson, one of the league’s top rushers, had 39 yards on only 11 rushes and scored twice. For Selah, the Vikings’ best scoring threat aside from its aforementioned drive deep into Prosser territory ended with a blocked 32-yard field goal attempt on its second possession.

“One of the best things about this team,” Sonnichsen said, “is we have a lot of depth. We have kids on our special teams that would be starters elsewhere in this league.”
