Solomon falls to 8-Man’s #1 team, Little River

Jackson SchneiderOctober 23, 2021

The Solomon Gorillas dropped their regular season finale Friday night to the top team in Kansas 8-Man Class I, Little River, 48-0.

Little River would score on their first possession, taking an early lead that would never be surrendered. Following the opening score, Solomon would go three-and-out and punt back to Little River, where the punt would be returned for a touchdown, giving the Redskins a 16-0 lead just 3:30 into the game.

Three turnovers also plagued the Gorillas early, with all three coming off interceptions that would set up the Redskins with shorter fields and allow them a chance to extend their early lead.

A 32-0 first quarter put the game well in hand and the Redskins would move on to 8-0 on the season. Solomon is now 5-3 on the year, but despite the loss, Solomon finishes as the #4 seed out of district four, and will play on the road against Clifton-Clyde in the first round of the playoffs next week.
