The 2021 State Runners-up proved to be too much for the Sioux County Warriors Friday afternoon.

The Potter-Dix Coyotes shutout the Warriors 63-0.

The Coyotes’ defense sacked Sioux County’s Cy Hughson twice in the game’s opening series, but the Warriors responded by stopping Potter-Dix on fourth and goal on the Coyotes’ first possession. Potter-Dix scored the first touchdown of the game with just under four minutes left in the first quarter and added another one with 10 seconds left on the clock for a 13-0 lead.

The Coyotes scored three times in the first five and half minutes of the second quarter before intercepting a Warriors’ pass and adding another touchdown before halftime. The Warriors trailed 43-0 at the break. Potter-Dix struck quickly in the third to make it 49-0 and implement the running clock and followed that with another interception and touchdown midway through the period. The Coyotes added a third interception to their statistics in the fourth and crossed the goal line one final time with just over three minutes remaining in the game.
