Quarterback Kiegan Schaan tossed four touchdowns but was equally impressive on the defensive side of the ball Friday for the Cascade Christian football team.
Schaan had two interceptions in the first half — one he returned for a touchdown that helped keep Harrisburg’s offensive weapons from getting going as the Challengers rumbled to a 52-20 victory at U.S. Cellular Community Park.
Harrisburg struck first with a touchdown run from its star running back, Gabe Knox, but Schaan answered on the following drive with a 23-yard touchdown pass to Cade Sample.
On the Eagles’ ensuing possession, Schaan returned a pass from Harrisburg quarterback Dax Bennett 30 yards to put the Challengers (2-1) up 14-6.
Schaan capped the big first quarter with one of two touchdown passes on the day to Kristian Fralich.
The Harrisburg offense began to sputter after Knox, who ran for 92 yards for the Eagles (2-1), went down with a leg injury in the third quarter.
Schaan was 17-for-25 for 207 yards and added 73 yards on the ground, Fralich had five catches for 88 yards and John Fralich added seven receptions for 79 yards and a TD.
