  • Wartburg Middle’s season ends...

    The Wartburg Central Middle School Bulldogs’ season came to a close Thursday evening as they lost 40-0 to Rockwood at Civitan Field.

    If it isn’t broke, you don’t have to fix it and that was words to live by for Rockwood in the game.

    The Tigers got a first-round bye for finishing first in the division and they didn’t look like the time off had dulled their execution.

    Wartburg attempted to run its offense out of the spread, but the Tigers were prepared.

    Oliver Springs shut down the offense of Sunbright to the tune of 55-0 at DJ Britton Field Friday night.

    “Oliver Springs is a great football team,” Sunbright coach Joe Kent said. “If they’re not ranked in the top 10 they should be.”

    The first play took one minute after a 42-yard run by Mason Hill, who then scored from 12 yards out.

  • York Dragons bring Wartburg’s...

    The Wartburg Bulldogs’ three-game winning streak came to an end Friday night, as Kevin Human’s squad traveled to Jamestown and were defeated by the York Institute Dragons, 58-0.

    “It was a bad night,” Human said. “We didn’t play well and it was a physical mismatch. We didn’t block well or tackle well. We took our lumps.”

    York Institute used a powerful ground attack to run away from Wartburg. For the evening, the Dragons amassed 492 yards of total offense with 469 yards coming on the ground.
