It was a short drive for Goessel and a short night, as Canton-Galva dominated the football contest on Friday. The Eagles scored three touchdowns in the first quarter to take a 20-0 lead. As Goessel’s young offense sputtered against the experience of the home team, Canton-Galva added another 46 points in the second quarter to win the game 66-0.
Michael Rhoades punted three times for an average of 37 yards per kick. The Bluebirds would only gain 50 yards on the ground and 30 yards in the air. The Bluebirds did gain five first downs but were intercepted twice in the game. Miguel Guerrero gained 23 yards running and Kellen Froese accumulated 19 yards. Zach Showalter led the team with two receptions for 22 yards.
Goessel will be at home on Friday against Southern Cloud High School, which will be the first game of district play.
