Grant Walker hauls in a 28-yard catch in the first quarter of Wauneta-Palisade’s game against Brady.
Injuries mount as Wauneta-Palisade manhandled by Brady
From the opening kickoff to the final horn, the Wauneta-Palisade football team didn’t have any answers for the Brady Eagles on last week’s chilly, damp Friday evening.
Brady returned the opening kick for a touchdown and never looked back.
Friday was a very tough game, according to Co-Head Coach Joseph Frecks. Injuries played a part.
“We have been inundated with injuries throughout this season,” Frecks said. “We had four players (two seniors) not suited up for the game Friday night.”
Two other seniors played injured and Austen Rozelle left the game with an injury.
“All of this seemed to put us at a bit of a disadvantage from the start of the game that we were just unable to overcome,” Frecks said.
He credited Brady (3-2) with being a very solid football team.
Brady played hard and was very aggressive right from the start of the game, Freck said.
“Even though nothing about the game went as we planned, we are still proud of the players for their effort and for sticking together.”
WP drove into Brady territory twice during the first quarter.
The second time the Broncos were unable to take advantage of a Braxton McKinney pass to Grant Walker which set WP up with first and goal.
