Pratt High School football team trounced the Hugoton Eagles last Friday, learning to take care of details as they continue an undefeated season.
The Greenback football team continued their winning streak last Friday night against the Hugoton Eagles. They defeated them in a 42-0 blowout to bring their record to 6-0 as they move towards districts.
Brett Winsor started the lead, catching a 40-yard pass from Travis Theis to score in the 1st quarter.
Theis followed it up in the 2nd quarter with a 1-yard run for a touchdown. Kadence Riner ended the half with a 21-yard run. Daniel Sanchez was good for both kicks and brought the score to 21-0 to end the 1st half.
“We are happy with the outcome of the game, however we had many things that needed to be corrected at halftime,” said the head coach Jamie Cruce. They were able to correct their faults and further their lead in the 2nd half.
Right off the bat Theis scored a touchdown on an 18-yard carry. Soon after, he scored his third touchdown of the night with a 5-yard run.
Caden Blankenship capped off the win in the last quarter with a 7-yard touchdown to end the game with a score of 42-0.
Cruce was happier with the way his team ended the game. “We feel as though we played better in the second half and were able to get a number of younger kids in the game during the fourth quarter.”
“We will need to continue to take care of the small details in order to keep improving and be at our best each week.”
The Greenbacks play at home this Friday night against Holcomb, the returning state champs.
