Wildcats taste success
By Jarann Johnson
Homecoming week started off as a success for the Center-Stanton Wildcats football team. Monday evening the Wildcats faced off against South Prairie in a controlled game.
The game featured four 12-minute quarters with running clock. There were no special teams during the scrimmage. Coaches elected to go for it on fourth down or tell the ref “punt” and the ball was placed at the 35-yard line.
South Prairie doesn’t have a varsity team so the game was not an official game. Center-Stanton dressed players from eighth grade to seniors in the game. The final score was close, but Center-Stanton won 42-34.
Every Center-Stanton player participated in the game. Center-Stanton Head Coach George Duenas was happy he got a chance to play some of his younger players and collect his team’s first win in a while.
“I had my young guys in there. They had a chance to compete. Juniors and below, they have never won a game. So it was nice for them to get a W,” Duenas said.
Coach Duenas thought his younger players did well and hopes his team can build from their win over South Prairie.
