The Bluebirds hammered Little River 52-6 on Friday. The GHS passing game accounted for 194 of 361 total yards, but it was the ground game that put most of the points on the board.
Travis Fensky broke a 43-yard touchdown run early in the first quarter and added a 37-yarder in the second frame.
Austin Unruh threw a 36-yard touchdown pass to Kendall Voth for the second score of the game. Voth then caught a 2-point conversion pass from Unruh for a 14-0 lead.
In the second quarter, Unruh followed with an 11-yard run and threw a 15-yarder to Voth for a 38-0 halftime lead.
Little River struck for its only points of the game in the third quarter, but Goessel responded with a 3-yard touchdown run by Dustin Peterson and a 17-yard interception return by Weston Hiebert.
Goessel’s next opponent is Sunrise Christian. The road contest is slated for 7 p.m.
The Warriors used a trick play to grab a second-quarter lead over Hutch Trinity and carried that momentum to a 19-7 home win.
“It was a defensive battle and there were a lot of penalties, so it was kind of sloppy,” coach David Pickens said.
Nathan Bishop scored on a quarterback keeper from 6 yards out in the third quarter and Trevor Hamm added a 15-yard score in the fourth. With a win out of reach, Hutch Trinity broke through in the fourth quarter to make it 19-7.
But the play of the game was a run by Will Pratt out of a fake field goal setup 20 yards from the end zone. The play started out as a bid to convert a fourth-and-1 and turned into the game’s decisive score. The PAT proved tougher, but PBHS led 6-0 at halftime.
“Our extra point didn’t work—we fumbled the snap,” Pickens laughed. “Thank God we didn’t fumble it the play before.”
Peabody-Burns will travel Friday to Chase County for a 7 p.m. start.
