Lake Mills held West Hancock to fewer than 100 total yards during its Homecoming football game on Friday.

The Bulldogs, on the other hand, racked up 453 total yards in their 54-0 win.

“It was a lot of fun for us. Just about anything we tried worked,” said Lake Mills head coach Bill Byrnes. “Our defense is getting better, and our offense moved the ball well.”

A pair of touchdown runs by Josh Peters gave Lake Mills a two-possession cushion in the first quarter.

The Bulldogs added six points in the second quarter on a 15-yard pass from Hunter Kingland to Lincoln Boehmer. At the half, Lake Mills led 20-0.

In the third quarter, the Bulldogs exploded with 28 points. Peters scored his third and fourth rushing touchdowns, and Paul Pins hauled in a 54-yard pass from Kingland.

Lake Mills scored one more time on a 10-yard run by Jonah Ringham to take a 54-point lead.

Peters led the Bulldogs’ rushing attack with 218 yards and four touchdowns on 21 carries.

Kingland completed 7-of-11 passes for 152 yards and two touchdowns. In the process, he found six different receivers.

Lake Mills didn’t have any turnovers and only punted twice.

The Bulldogs (3-3 overall, 2-2 Class A District 2) are in sixth place in the eight-team district. They have an opportunity to move up in the standings with three more district games, Byrnes mentioned.

Next, Lake Mills will play at Prairie Valley (3-3 overall, 3-1 Class A District 2) at 7 p.m. Friday.
