A 21-point barrage in the first quarter sunk the Dragons on Friday night as they ultimately fell to the Indians of Kennett 49-13. The loss dropped Ste. Genevieve to 0-3 and has them still searching for their first win.
QB Aiden Boyer, gave it a go but the Indians were too much in this one. He was 3-of-12 passing for 95 yards and lost six yards on the ground in four rushing attempts and threw an interception. The bright spot on the day was a 78-yard bomb to Bret Bieser that went for an impressive touchdown.
It was a day of notable plays that were few and far between, but the Dragons can hopefully build off of ones like that. It’s going to take big play ability to climb out of their current three-loss hole, but the Dragons have the fight and ability to surprise and the players believe in themselves.
Outside of the long bomb through the air, the only other TD the Dragons could muster was a fourth-quarter rush from running back Anthony Nash. He had just two attempts and gained 12 yards, but was the only Dragon to find paydirt with the running game. Nash was also solid on the other side of the ball as he shared the team lead with six tackles. Fellow touchdown specialist Bieser had six of his own as well.
The road ahead isn’t going to be an easy one for the Dragons but they are a hungry bunch and have the ability to pounce from the shadows and surprise an opponent. They face 2-1 Potosi in a conference matchup on Friday and will try and cement their first win.
