It was a rough night for the Salina South Cougars as they fell to the Goddard-Eisenhower Tigers 56-7 on a cold and windy Friday night.

The Tigers added another score on their first offensive possession of the second half following a Salina South punt which made the score 49-0 and instituted the running clock. Eisenhower would score one more time on a short punt return touchdown after quarterback Landon Putman wasn’t able to beat the wind on a pooch punt from his own end zone.
The Cougars showed resilience on a tough night and were able to find the end zone on their final drive of the game as Power ran one in from 12-yards out to break up the shoutout.

Your H&R Block of the Game goes to the quarterback Landon Putman, as he sprung Carson Power free for a run of 12 yards in the first half. Power reversed field after seeing his original path bottled up and thanks to an excellent block thrown by Putman, Power was able to secure a first down.
