Pella, Iowa – Was it going to be two years in a row for the Indians to defeat the Little Dutch?

The Little Dutch came out of the locker room looking to make a statement after last year’s defeat in Oskaloosa.

The battle to claim a district title was named game of the week by some media outlets.

The Little Dutch defeated the Indians 35-3, to be in a position to be district champions.

In the end, the Indians didn’t have a solution to make it two in a row, and instead fought to not be skunked in the match-up.

The game was all Pella, as they had 13 first downs to Oskaloosa’s 8.

Pella shined in the air, with 158 yards passing to Oskaloosa’s 10 yards. The Little Dutch edged the Indians on the ground with 148 yards to Oskaloosa’s 114.

Will Schultz lead the Indians ground attack with 79 yards. Tyler Miller ended the evening with a net 24 yards rushing, while Wyatt Krier had 11 net yards of rushing.

Aaron Downs had 103 net yards of rushing for the Little Dutch, while Nolan Clayberg had 31 yards on the ground.

Tyler Miller attempted seven passes gaining nine yards and one interception. Will Schultz attempted five passes for a total of one yard.

Pella’s Ryan Mace passed for 158 yards on 16 attempts, one interception and three touchdowns.

Noah Van Veldhuizen, Will Schultz, and Tyler Miller each caught a pass, for a total of 10 yards among the three.

Logan Shetterly caught five passes for a total of 101 yards and three touchdowns. Aaron Down had 32 yards on two receptions.

Senior Aaron Blom punted the ball six times with an average of 37.5 yards a punt for the Indians. Ryan Mace also punted six times for an average of 34.7 yards a punt.

Aaron Blom had the lone score for the Indians on Friday night when he booted a 36-yard field goal.

Defensively, Pella was lead by Levi Roose with nine total tackles. Nick DeJong had eight tackles, and Logan Baker had seven tackles.

Kenny Settimi was the defensive monster for Oskaloosa, racking up 11 tackles. Cody Gunn had eight tackles, while Wyatt Krier added six tackles.
