Pretty Prairie football passes test versus Fairfield
Broce picked up another TD, followed by a Welker PAT to edge ahead 52-22, then Mains got into the end zone again on a 29-yard run, that was capped off by a Alex Mains to Michael Mains conversion to hit 60 points.
The Falcons had the final TD of the night as Ewy rushed into the end zone, and picked up two more points in the PAT.
A low point of the game was when Schnittker had to be assisted to the sidelines with an injury. Having had two players (Tyler Markus and Justin Haflich) hurt against Cunningham last week, dealing with injuries is something Young and his team have already had to experience. But after a decisive win over Fairfield, Young isn’t complaining.
“Considering when had two starters not playing and we had to readjust our lineup, I was really proud of them. They played hard,” said Young.
After being critical of his team after last week’s offensive effort, Young was happy with the way the quarterback Alex Mains and the other players turned things around.
“We had much better offensive performance, we had pretty good team to put up 60 points,” said Young. “(Mains) showed up this week. Last week he didn’t play well, and he’d be the first to tell you that. He’s played well against Fairfield in the past, and had more confidence.”
Now 2-0, the Bulldogs will have its first non-league game against Baileyville next week at Solomon. Young isn’t reading too much into what kind of competition they will face.
“I’m just going to enjoy the win over Fairfield for now,” he said.
The 1-1 Falcons will play Kinsley next week.
