North Fremont kept their undefeated season alive with another blowout win Friday beating West Jefferson 54-13.
It didn’t take long for the Huskies to get started. They drove down the field in four plays on the first drive. Deshon Wheeler broke free to get the Huskies into the redzone then Riggen Cordingley rushed it in from 15 yards out.
“We started out fast,” Lenz said. “We were able to go down and score on our first possession. That kind of got the ball rolling. It was a cold night. The kids embraced the elements and just played a great game all the way around.”

“We hadn’t seen that all year and we had to adjust,” Lenz said. “It was tough sledding going between the tackles so we were able to have a little bit of success going outside.”
Riggen led the Huskies with 16 carries for 183 yards, Deshon Wheeler rushed for 143 yards on 14 carries and Luke Hill rushed for 65 yards on 7 carries. North Fremont has been incredible rushing the ball all year but they might be getting even better.
“Our line, we’re executing our blocking better,” Lenz said. “The running backs are running hard and I think things are just starting to mesh a little bit better as the season goes on.”
North Fremont only had to pass the ball twice and one was a two-point conversion.
The Huskies next game will be at home against Firth who is also 2-0 in the conference. That game will likely decide who wins the nuclear conference championship. Lenz said Firth will be a tough test.
“They’ve steadily improved,” Lenz said. “They’ve got good athletes. They are a big play team. They have the ability to put up points with big plays whether it’s with athletes in the backfield or on the receiving end. They have a lot of different things they throw at you. It’s going to take a lot of preparation and scheming to slow them down.”
