The Solomon Gorillas met the tough task of the Little River Redskins on Friday night, with both teams entering off of a loss.
Little River would take control of this one early, as Andrew Smith would find Jaren Garrison for a long score. Smith would then return a Solomon punt 70 yards for a score, and rush in another from 13-yards out all before the end of the first quarter.
From there, Little River would take a 40-0 lead into the locker room, a comfortable advantage for one of the powerhouse schools in 8-Man Football.
The Solomon Gorillas would score their lone touchdown of the night on a Spencer Cope to Spencer Krause connection of 53-yards. Krause would also punch in the 2-point try for the Gorillas, who fall to 1-3 under first year Head Coach Andrew Capsey, who is continuing to build a strong foundation for future success at Solomon.
Little River bounced back off their loss to Ell-Saline and are now 3-1. They will host Moundridge next week in one of the marquee games of week five in Kansas. Solomon will play host to the Goessel Bluebirds next week.
Solomon (1-3) – 0 – 0 – 8 – X / 8
Little River (3-1) – 24 – 16 – 14 – X / 54
