Big nights from Browning, Ambler lead the way for Schlagle


Stop the presses - Schlagle running back J'veyon Browning had a big game.

Coming off a brilliant season last year, Browning went right back to work in the opening game of the season, a 36-6 Stallions win against Topeka West on the road.

He finished the season opener with 263 yards on just 17 carries - good enough for a 15.5 yards per carry average. Browning had runs of 72 yards, 55 yards, 40 yards and 33 yards.

However, he wasn't alone for the Stallions in the fun.

In his Schlagle debut, De'Ante Ambler scored two touchdowns - a 69-yard interception return and a 32-yard touchdown reception from quarterback D.J. Sayles.

Ambler's two touchdowns followed Sayles' own defensive touchdown - a 26-yard fumble return.

Schlagle led 18-0 after one and really were never threatened.

Browning got on the board with a two-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, leading Schlagle to a 24-0 halftime advantage.

A 72-yard touchdown run in the third quarter extended the lead to 30-0.

Browning punched home his final touchdown of the evening, a four-yard run in the fourth quarter. Schlagle finished with 274 rushing yards out-gained Topeka West 306 to 147 in total yardage.

With the win, new Schlagle Stallions head coach Martez Wesley earned his first ever head coaching victory.
