Saint Francis Seniors Jordan Raby and Cody Baxter lead the team on the field for the first game against Sharon Springs Wildcats. The game was called due to weather. "It was an exciting experience to start my sophomore season out with a great group of friends," said Sophomore Adam Krien.

Friday the Indians defeated the Wallace County Wildcats in the first game of the season on Greene Field. In the first quarter of the game the Indians scored two touchdowns making it 12-0. In the second quarter, the Indians made one more touchdown and made the two-point conversion before halftime. Soon after halftime, the Indians scored another touchdown and made the two-point conversion before the game ended with a weather advisory. The Indians sealed their first game of the season with a victory, 28-0.

Senior Connor Keller had some key stops in the game and said he was glad he could do what he could to get a win for Nick Fawcett, Sainty head football coach. “I was really nervous because it’s kinda the first time I’ve gotten to play, but it was really fun to win my first game as a senior and get coach his first win as head coach,” said Keller.

Fawcett said he was proud of the players. “I was extremely proud of the boys and their effort tonight.  Before we took the field I told them that we would make mistakes and things would not go exactly as we drew them up and practiced all week, but to make any mistake going a hundred miles an hour. And we did make some mistakes, but no one ever gave up and they kept looking for work, just as my coaches and I have been preaching for three weeks now,” said Fawcett.

Sophomore Adam Krien set his sights to keep choppin’ for the playoffs. “I believe our team will go to the playoffs if we keep working harder,” Krien said.

Junior Jaron Berig agreed with Krien. “It feels good,” said Berig. “It gives me hope that we will win the championship, if we keep working hard.”

At halftime the Saint Francis Pom Squad performed a memorable performance. The pom squad consisted of Juniors Italia Gutierrez, Yaneiri Quezada, Sophomore Kattie Wurm, and Freshman captain Hadleigh Hilt.
