Bluebirds lose to Canton-Galva

Staff writer

This week, size made a difference, as a larger Canton-Galva football team dominated at Goessel.

The Eagles’ fullback ran for 41 yards and a touchdown on the first play from scrimmage. After a Goessel punt pinned the Eagles close to their goal line, a loose snap in the end zone was picked up by the Canton-Galva quarterback, who escaped down the left sideline for an end-to-end touchdown. The Bluebirds were unable to move the ball consistently as the Eagles scored again in the first quarter, grabbing a 24-0 lead.

Goessel’s defense forced more plays in the second quarter, but the Bluebirds were overmatched offensively. Canton-Galva scored two more times in the second period to end the game at the half, 46-0.

The Bluebirds managed just 30 yards of offense while punting four times. Carson Sterk led the defense with 7.5 tackles.

Goessel will play its last game of the season Thursday against Central Plains High School at Claflin.
