loses defensive battle

In the game, the Warriors matched up against a Clark team with a major size advantage.
But the Warriors compensated with hustle and hard work and a defensive battle ensued.
"They did a good job against bigger kids," said Coach John Barnes. "We just couldn't get any offense going."
The defense scored a safety following a third quarter kickoff and strong defensive stand.
The team next plays at 4 p.m. here against Monticello.

Seventh-graders win
game against Clark
The Tonganoxie seventh-grade football team beat Clark 12-0 Sept. 6.
The team was outweighed 20 pounds each by Clark's front line.
Coach John Korb said that several players really stepped up for the game. He praised the offensive line for it's remarkable blocking. He said the defensive front of Ryan Bennett, Joey Hicks, Alan Athon, Kent Fleming and Aaron Adcox was like a brick wall. The Warriors only allowed Clark 40 yards. "I was really proud of the team and its focus in the game," Korb said.
