Scheiding Feels Favorable About Team Despite Home Loss To Sutton

Tri County head football coach Brett Scheiding felt good with the effort put forth by his team after Friday’s 44-6 home loss to (3-0) Sutton.
“We played one of the top teams in Class C2 and went head-to-head with them for the most part,” Scheiding said.
“Going into the game we worked to take away their running game, as they are a very good team rushing the ball. They did pick up quite a bit of yards through the air, but we knew we were going to give up some yards through the air,” Scheiding remarked.
Tri County started strong on Friday evening scoring the first points of the game midway through the first quarter.
The Trojans marched down field picking up three first downs against the Mustangs on their way to the endzone.
Tri County’s scoring drive was capped off with a five-yard touchdown run by Shane Jiskra off a pitch from quarterback Wyatt Kowalski.

Jeffs Control Second Half, But Comeback Falls Short

Following a sluggish first half of play, Fairbury asserted themselves in the second half of Friday’s road contest at Auburn.  
Unfortunately, a strong second half of scoring wasn’t enough to offset a three-touchdown deficit at half, as Auburn hung on for a 28-20 win on its home field.
Auburn jumped on Fairbury right away scoring a pair of first quarter rushing touchdowns to open a 14-0 lead.
With :38 second remaining in the opening quarter Fairbury got on the scoreboard, as quarterback Dalton Hinrichs tossed a 36-yard touchdown pass to Jake Johnson.
The PAT kick by Justin Peterson cut the deficit to 14-7 at the end of one quarter.
Auburn’s offense continued to roll in the second quarter tallying a pair of touchdowns.
Bulldog quarterback Hopps hooked up with Yates on a 58-yard touchdown strike for Auburn’s first score of the second quarter.
