Hanover wins state championship for the third straight year

The Hanover Wildcats cheerleaders perform during the state championship game.

Hanover won their third state championship in a row on Saturday, putting the Wildcats in elite company in 8-man football in Kansas. Only two other teams have won at least three state titles in a row in 8-man football since state championship games were first held in 1969.

Scandia won in 1970, 1971 and 1972 when there was just one division of 8-man football.

Denton-Midway won five in a row between the two 8-man divisions. They won in 1984 (D1), 1985 and 1986 (D2), 1987 (D1) and 1988 (D2).

Hanover claimed their third crown in a row (and five overall including their 2008 and 2009 championships) with a 58-50 win over Osborne in the Division 2 championship game on Saturday at Newton.

This high-scoring matchup set a record for the most combined points in an eight-man title game.

Hanover reaches state title game for fifth straight year

Carter Bruna cuts the ball upfield. Bruna led the team in rushing with 103 yards.

Hanover’s second matchup against the Axtell Eagles was not the challenge it was during the regular season, when the Wildcats won 50-42. During the substate game on Friday at Axtell, Hanover scored on every possession in the first half, going up 38-8 by half and winning 60-14.

Stallbaumer had 167 yards passing with two touchdowns, while Carter Bruna had 103 yards rushing with two TDs.

“The boys played with a lot of energy and were aggressive to the ball throughout the evening which allowed us to come away with the victory,” said Hanover Head Coach Matt Heuer. “I thought it was key that we were able to sustain drives and also hit the big play which is something we missed on the first meeting with them.” Coach Heuer also said, “It was a total overall team effort and I feel as though we are playing our best right now as we move into the State Championship.”
