Regina is on a roll.
The Regals have outscored their opponents 82-6 in their last two contests after a 48-6 win at Wapello (2-1) on Friday night.
Regina defeated rival Solon last Friday 34-0 in a game that was expected to be much closer.
“Those first two games really helped us get to this point, being really fine-tuned with what we’re trying to accomplish,” Regina head coach Marv Cook said.
Class 1A top-ranked Regina (2-1) raced to a 42-0 halftime lead and cruised in the District 4 opener for both teams on Friday.
Regina quarterback Michael Conlon led the charge for the Regals racking up 214 all-purpose yards and three total touchdowns.
Conlon ran for two touchdowns and threw for another, connecting with Jack Jensen on an 11-yard scoring strike.
“The coaches are seeing what they’re seeing and calling based on what they’re seeing,” Conlon said. “The offensive line has played amazing, the holes are there and we just do our best to hit them and thankfully they’ve opened them up perfectly.
“I think my tempo can be a little better. I think I can work on that.”
Wapello’s only score came on a 68-yard punt return late in the fourth quarter as Regina used a stingy defense to secure another victory on a rain-soaked night.
“It was a perfect night to start then we had a pretty big weather cell come in,” Cook said. “It rained pretty hard in the second quarter but that blew out and it turned out to be a pretty beautiful night so weather didn’t really impact the game that much.
“I thought our kids played well. It was a good road trip for us, 50-minute bus ride. A lot of young guys got in the game for us.
“I thought Wapello did a good job. I thought they were well-coached. I thought they were a good team they just don’t have the depth that a lot of these programs we’re playing have.”
