Your preparation sports

A week after snapping a two-game losing skid, Solon began a streak the other way on Friday.

Solon led a powerful running game and dominant defensive effort for a 36-0 win over West Burlington on Friday for his second straight win in the Class 3A, District 5 opener for both teams at West Burlington .

Brett White rushed for 78 yards and two touchdowns and senior quarterback Blake Timmons added 72 rushing yards and three scores as Solon rushed for a season-high 282 yards.

The Spartans improved to 3-2 this season and 1-0 in district play with their second shutout of the year while West Burlington fell to 1-4 and 0-1 in district play.

Solon limited West Burlington to 62 total yards and three first downs and recorded a safety in the win.

Timmons scored on 5, 5 and 3 yard touchdown passes in the first half and White had a 1 yard touchdown run as the Spartans took a 29-0 halftime lead.

That was more than enough for the Spartan defense which limited the Falcons to 39 rushing yards on 24 attempts.
