The Northwood-Solon Springs Evergreens are hoping to rebound this week after a 86-12 loss to conference-leading Prairie Farm.
The Evergreens stand at 0-1 in the Lakeland Eight-Man Conference and 1-2 overall.
Against Prairie Farm, offense was hard to come by for Northwood-Solon Springs. The Evergreens scored on a kickoff return by Randy Fosberg and a 4-yard run by Walker Grenier. Both players are freshmen.
“Our underclassmen are very talented and understand the game of football,” said Brian Amys, head coach of the Evergreens. “It is going to be fun to have the opportunity to coach these guys and watch them develop in the next few years.”
Grenier, in particular, provided the Evergreens with a spark late in the game. He picked up 29 yards on seven carries for the Evergreens on their 45-yard scoring drive.
“Walker Grenier runs the ball hard and isn't afraid to hit people even though he is just a freshman,” Amys said.
Junior quarterback Kacey Block was also key during the drive, with an 11-yard run and a 9-yard pass for first downs.
Winter (1-2, 0-1)enters today’s game still looking for its first conference win of the season. The Warriors were shut out by Bruce last week, 56-0. Winter had less than 100 yards of total offense in the game.
