Canton-Galva makes quick work of Peabody-Burns
PEABODY — It is beginning to look like the Canton-Galva High School football team may not be challenged in the regular season.
The Eagles recorded another dominant performance on Friday to improve to 5-0. Canton-Galva went on the road to Peabody-Burns and won 56-0 in two quarters.
Four of Landon Everett’s seven completions went for touchdowns — two to Tyson Struber and one a piece to Tyler Rummel and Kinser Colgin. Brayden Collins rushed for two touchdowns and Everett added another on the ground.

Little River is now 2-0 in 8-Man Division I District 5 and tied with Macksville for first place. The game actually entered the second quarter tied at eight, but from that moment on Little River outscored Skyline 50-0.

Teutons shut out at home
INMAN—The Inman High School football team kept it a low-scoring game all night, but couldn't find anything offensively as the Teutons fall to Ell-Saline High School at home 14-0.
"It was a grind it out type of football game," Inman's head coach Lance Sawyer said. "This was the most physical team Inman team has played since I have been here. Our defense played phenomenal. Justin Schroeder led the way at linebacker.
Offensively we had opportunities but could not capitalize when we needed to. I am so proud of the way our kids played. We continue to get better every week."
The Teutons drop to 2-3 and will try to reach back .500 when they take on Sublette High School on the road next Friday at 7 p.m.
Moundridge struggles at Macksville
Macksville— The woes continue for the Moundridge High School football team. For two weeks in a row, the Wildcat defense gets rolled over after a 48-14 loss to Macksville High School.

The Wildcats fall 2-3 on the season and will look to get back on the winning track when they host the winless St. John next Friday at 7 p.m.
