SCOTT CITY, KANSAS -- Despite winning two in a row heading into Friday night the Goodland Cowboy football team was no match for the best team in their district, the Beavers from Scott City, losing 57-14.
From the opening kick to the final whistle the Beavers showed why they are the best team in the GWAC racking up over 300 yards of offense in the first half while only allowing 31 total yards defensively on their way to a 42-0 halftime lead.
With the game in hand, the second half saw Goodland get something going all be it against the second & third-stringers from SCHS.
The most exciting play of the night for GHS was a 90-yard kickoff return from sophomore Anthony Rubial that set up the Cowboy's first score.
The Cowboys ended up with 104 total yards, all of it on the ground. Kyan Ensign led GHS with 37 of those yards & Mason Berls added 21. Mason Hernandez had a late score bringing his season total up to nine and freshman Chayton Goodwin had his first touchdown of his varsity career with a nine-yard run late in the contest.
When the game was over the Beavers had 363 total yards, with 293 of it coming on the ground, and seven touchdowns. Beavers had six different players score led by Brady Welker who had two scores and 54 yards rushing. Lawson Bailey had the biggest game of all, gaining 181 total yards with a rush & receiving score.
The loss ended a brief two-game winning streak for Goodland as they suffered their worst loss of the season, point differential-wise. While Scott City continued their domination of GHS having now won 40 or the 51 meetings between the two schools.
Goodland will return home for senior night against Hugoton Friday, with a battle for the third playoff spot on the line. While the Beavers are on the road taking on Colby this coming Friday.
