Game ends at half for Peabody-Burns
Peabody-Burns Warriors first football game of the season was cut short Friday after the Rural Vista Heat reeled off 58 first-half points, triggering a halftime mercy rule that ended the game 58-8.
Austin Reynolds scored the only Warriors touchdown of the evening with 2 minutes, 44 seconds left in the second quarter.
Rural Vista benefited from intercepted passes and fumbles.
“We were sloppy,” Pickens said. “We got a lot of people that need to come together to play as a team, and we aren’t doing that right now.”
Rural Vista ranks as one of the top three teams for 1A in the state, and Peabody-Burns will face yet another tough opponent Friday.
“We play Wakefield, which is going to be another good football team,” Pickens said, “so we have to get our stuff together in a short amount of time.”
