Warriors Prevail In Storm-Shortened Homecoming Contest


A deluge of hail cut the Sioux County-Crawford football game short Friday, with the Warriors prevailing 50-18 in their Homecoming contest.

The game was delayed for lightning with 6:44 remaining as thunderstorms approached, and the teams eventually agreed to end the game after hail blanketed the field and as storm chaser Reed Timmer circled through town in the Dominator.

Sioux County’s defense put the Warriors in good position early, as Logan Monroe and Shane Gluth recovered two Crawford fumbles in the first five minutes. Jack Hunter put the Warriors on the scoreboard midway through the first quarter for a 6-0 lead, and Cy Hughson then grabbed Sioux County’s onside kick to retain possession. Hunter’s next touchdown run was called back due to penalty, but William Skavdahl managed a pick six with 3:30 left in the first quarter to put Sioux County up 14-0.

Hughson connected with Baxter Reece for another touchdown four minutes into the second quarter before Crawford’s Taylor Homan found Cody Holmgren to give the Rams their first score of the night to make it 20-8. Hunter answered minutes later to give the Warriors a 28-8 lead at the half.

Hunter scored his third TD on the Warriors’ first snap of the second half and punched it in again three minutes later to put the Warriors ahead 44-8.

Crawford scored the next 10 points, kickstarting their run with a safety and following that with a touchdown pass from Homan to Colton Mader in the last two minutes of the third quarter.

Logan Monroe caught a Hughson pass for a final Warrior score, and Sioux County recovered a third Ram fumble before the game was called.
