Senior Quarterback Stocton Timbrook passed for 381 yards and six touchdowns as the Abilene Cowboys handed the Concordia Panthers their second loss to start the 2023 season, 47-12, on Friday, September 8th.

Timbrook was 16-of-21 in pass attempts and posted six touchdown passes to five different receivers.

The Cowboys' spread was especially effective against the Panthers, who had a tough time keeping up.  Of Timbrook's touchdown passes, four came on scoring drives of three plays or less.

The Cowboys also racked up 451 yards in this one, on the way to their highest point total since a 50-14 win over Wamego in 2016.

Abilene has started the season 2-0 for the second consecutive year.

Timbrook tossed for three touchdowns in the first half, spreading them around to Seniors Brax Fisher and Keaton Hargrave and Junior Joseph Welsh, as the Cowboys grabbed a 28-6 halftime lead.  Their only non-passing touchdown of the opening half came on a 9-yard touchdown run by Senior Fullback Zach Miller on their opening drive of the contest.

Hargrave added a second touchdown catch in the third quarter, while both Junior Weston Rock and Sophomore Heath Hoekman pulled in second-half touchdown grabs of their own.

The Panthers have suffered back-to-back losses to begin North Central Kansas League play.

Concordia was able to to put a touchdown on the scoreboard late in the first half.  Junior Running Back Drew Sterrett scored on a 9-yard touchdown run with 17-seconds to go in the second quarter, cutting the lead to 21-6.
