Cody-Kilgore dashed Sioux County’s Homecoming hopes, handing the Warriors a 53-15 loss Friday.
The game remained scoreless until the Cowboys crossed the goal line on a 26-yard run as the first quarter ended to go up 6-0.
Sioux County had positioned themselves to score first three minutes earlier after converting on third and 38 with a 53-yard pass from Cy Hughson to Jadon Skavdahl, but failed to punch it in.
The Cowboys’ Jasper Roseberry didn’t wait long in the second quarter, racing 31-yards after two minutes of action to make it 12-0. A Cowboy interception two minutes later set up a 16-yard touchdown run by Jacob Knox to give C-K an 18-0 advantage.
After a personal foul penalty, the Cowboys intercepted the Warriors again to set up yet another touchdown. The Warriors’ Baxter Reece blocked the point-after attempt, but C-K still led 24-0.
The Cowboys continued to dominate in the second quarter, adding a final score by Parker Andrews with 34 seconds left in the half. The Warriors managed a second blocked kick to keep it at 30-0, then responded with a William Skavdahl touchdown catch as the clock ran out for a halftime score of 30-8.
Sioux County’s defense almost held Cody-Kilgore scoreless in the third quarter, but the Cowboys entered the end zone with 43 seconds left on the clock. C-K’s Knox added another touchdown mid-way through the final quarter and teammate Cash Cooper tacked on the final score with just 13 seconds remaining in the game to make it 53-8.
That didn’t end the scoring though, as Reece returned the kickoff for a touchdown, crossing the goal line with 2-tenths of a second to go. Preston Kreman ran in the extra point for the final score of 53-15.
