The Sioux County Warriors struggled to put together effective series on either side of the ball in an 86-8 loss against Cody-Kilgore Friday.
The Cowboys wasted no time putting points on the board, scoring on the kick-off return on their opening series for a 6-0 lead. Less than a minute later, they were back across the goal line for a 14-0 advantage. Sioux County looked to cut the lead in half, knocking on the end zone after two pass interference calls on the Cowboys but couldn’t finish the drive. The Cowboys, however, answered with a 69-yard touchdown pass and an interception that set up a 27-yard rushing touchdown. Cody-Kilgore closed out the opening quarter with a 38-0 lead.
Less than two minutes into the second quarter, the Cowboys had extended that lead to 52-0. Three fumbles, two by Sioux County, both recovered by the Cowboys, and one by Cody-Kilgore recovered by the Warriors, ran time off the clock before the Cowboys added two more touchdowns in the final two minutes of the first half for a 66-0 lead.
With a running clock for the entire second half, the Cowboys found the end zone twice in the third quarter and once more with 3:47 remaining in the contest after intercepting a Sioux County pass for an 86-0 advantage.
Sioux County’s only score came after Jack Hunter rushed for 42 yards to put the Warriors on the 12-yard line. With 29 seconds left on the clock, Cy Hughson found Shane Gluth in the end zone for the final 86-8 result.
