Thursday night, the EMS Warriors played host to the SRMS Apaches at Liberal High School.  Eisenhower’s 7th grade got off to a quick start with a defensive stop followed by a score.  EMS was able to score two more times in the first half, and Seymore Rogers scored once in the first half as well.  In the second half it was all EMS as they were able to control offense, defense, and special teams play.  SRMS didn’t score again until the 3rd string players were on the field. Landry Fitzgerald rushed for 110 yards and caught a 12 yard TD pass from Ethan Olmstead who also had a rushing TD and just under 90 yards passing including a 63 yard strike to Kye Morris.  Zayden Martinez rushed for over 120 yards from the fullback position including a 58 yard TD and a 2 yard TD.  Final score: 42-14.

The 8th grade Warriors team was equally as efficient on offense and even more dominant on defense, pitching a shutout for the entire game.  Seymore Rogers fumbled the ball about 10 times, with the Warriors recovering 4 of them.  The Apaches were able to contain star wide receiver Max Holman, limiting his receptions, but he still found ways to dominate on defense and special teams.  He also broke off a couple of big runs from his WR position and from the wildcat formation.  QB Wyatt Mannel played the best game of his career as he was able to find the end zone 4 times on the ground with over 150 yards rushing.  Jayden Heronemus and Landon McNabb each broke off a couple of big runs from the HB position allowing each man to score in the game.  Both halfbacks had their best blocking games of their careers, picking up blitzes and lead blocking for Wyatt like fullbacks.  Final Score: 42-0The 7th Grade Warriors finished the season at 3-3-1 while the 8th Grade Warriors finished at 2-5 with both teams playing their best football of the year in the finale.  The entire coaching staff would like to thank all of our players for all of their hard work in all 7 games, and from week 1 of practice all the way through week 9 of practice.  We saw a lot of adversity, they fought through it all, and came out better for it.  Thanks to all of the families for the support we had from you this year, it means a lot to the boys, and to the coaching staff.
