Homecoming loss for Warriors

Sports writer

Peabody-Burns High School football team suffered another loss with a defeat by the Hutch Trinity Celtics, 69-0.

The team still is looking for a win this season and will next travel to Sedgwick.

The contest began with an Andrew Sheffler return of the Celtic kickoff and Warrior offense had the ball at their own 24-yard line. Daniel Brassfield carried the ball for two downs and Derek Price took a handoff from quarterback Hunter Pickens but the drive ended in a Brassfield punt.

Celtic offense scored from the first play from scrimmage with a 31-yard pass completion. They added a PAT and the Warriors trailed, 7-0, with 9:34 left in the first period.

Warrior defense struggled against the Celtic offense for the remainder of the first period. Hutch Trinity scored five more times in the quarter and the Warrior deficit grew to 42-0 with just seconds left in the first.

Warrior offense struggled for the remainder of the half and the team remained without a score at halftime.

Despite defensive plays by Price, Spencer Moffett, Lucas Larsen, Brent Jones, Clint Jones, Trevor Foth, and Austin Savage, Hutch Trinity added two more scores before the half and led, 56-0, at the break.

Warrior defense opened the second half that was shortened by the operation of the continuous clock. Tackles were made by Wesley Shaw, Jayden Miller, Mario Sanders, Larsen, Christian Gard, Garrett Weems, Tommy Morris, and Allen McLaughlin, but Celtic offense scored twice in the final half for a finish of 69-0.

Larsen led the rushing game with six carries for 17 yards. Price carried 11 times for 10 yards. Brassfield punted five times for 105 yards.

Larsen led the defense with five tackles. Price had 4.5 and Clint Jones had 3.5. Weems and Shaw recorded 2.5 each and Savage, Foth, Morris, and Miller each had 1.5. Brassfield and Sanders had one tackle each, and Gard and Brent Jones each recorded .5.
