HARTSHORNE — The Miners continued their domination of District 2A-8 with a decisive 49-7 win over the Stigler Panthers.

Hartshorne junior tailback Ian Robichaud was a dominant force for the Miners in the win. He rushed for 255 yards on 18 carries and scored five of the Miners’ seven touchdowns against the Panthers.

The game started rather quietly with the Miners taking a 7-0 lead in the first half on a 5-yard touchdown run. Will Ardese kicked the extra-point.

The Miners caught fire in the second quarter, with a four-touchdown, 29-point outburst.

Robichaud scored twice on long runs of 44 and 75 yards. Fullback Dylan Voegele scored on a 55-yard run and Robichaud finished the scoring in the first half for the Miners with a 7-yard run.

Stigler didn’t get on the board until less than two minutes remained in the half to make the halftime score 36-7.

Robichaud finished off his spectacular night in the third quarter with two more touchdown runs. The first was a 54-yarder and the second an 18-yarder.

The 255 yards against Stigler gives Robichaud 1,280 for the season. The junior is averaging 160 yards per game in the eight games played this year.

The Miners finished the night with 476 yards on the ground, 92 by quarterback Bryce Killingsworth, and 43 yards passing, as Killingsworth completed two of the four passes he attempted.

Hartshorne improved to 6-2 overall this year and 5-0 in district play.

Next week the Miners travel to Wilburton for the annual “Battle of Gowen Mountain.” Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
