Osceola-The Scribner-Snyder Football team came up short Friday night, falling 71-30 at Osceola.
Jadyn Smeal led the Trojans offensively with 152 yards rushing on 13 carries, including a touchdown. Sebastian Arnold added 68 yards rushing on 16 attempts for Scribner-Snyder (1-6).
Osceola (7-1) was led by Peyton Watts, who ran for 131 yards on 8 carries, and scored twice. Brennan Bryan notched 120 yards rushing on 7 carries, and punched the ball in the end zone four times.
Scribner-Snyder amassed 307 yards of offense, all on the ground, while the Bulldogs had 378 yards of total offense, including 343 rushing.
Scribner-Snyder Head Coach Anthony Ruzicka says his team is improving.
“We missed a few tackles yet, but overall it’s getting better. We got some different people playing on the line. Blocking was so so at times, but yeah I mean we’re coming along and seeing a lot of improvement week-to-week, so that’s what we’re looking for.”
The Trojans finish up their season at Cedar Bluffs next Friday.
Ruzicka says the Wildcats will present a challenge.
“They are really big up front. Quarterback that throws the ball. I think two weeks ago when they played Osceola they threw the ball around a lot. They beat us last year. We did see them at camp. And they’re going to load up the box, they’re going to come bent for stopping the run, so we’re going to have our hands full.”
Osceola is off until the playoffs begin.
