Emmetsburg Needs Only 3 Points Against S-O

Fri 9-9-2016

The Emmetsburg football needed only a 27 yard field goal from Brent Wesley to defeat Sibley-Ocheyedan Friday night in Class 1A District 1 football.  Sibley Ocheyedan got the ball first and was driving until Preston Marco threw an interception to Emmetsburg's Will Schany.  Will would return it all the way to the 9 yard line.  The E'hawks could not get an closer and on 4th down, Brent Wesley lined up for a field goal and made it with 9:03 left to go in the 1st quarter.  After that point it was a defensive battle and neither team could really get anything going.  A combined 17 punts determined the game.  Another big factor was turnovers.  Sibley-Ocheyedan would turn the ball over 5 times.  Will Schany, Nick Schany and Grant Deitering would all get an interception and Will Schany and Mason Carrigan would recover a fumble.

 

Emmetsburg was held to 89 total yards and only 4 first downs.  They punted the ball 11 times.  Sibley-Ocheyedan had 236 yards and 12 first downs and punted 6 times, but once again had 5 turnovers compared to the E'hawks 2 turnovers.  Emmetsburg improves to 1-2 and 1-0 in district play and will host Western Christian Friday September 16 on Y 100.  Sibley-Ocheyedan falls to 1-2 and 0-1 in district play and will be at Okoboji next Friday on Q 102.
