The Little River Redskins stayed alive in their football district on Friday with a 62-14 rout of old rival Canton-Galva.

The Redskins jumped out to a 40-8 halftime lead. They are now 2-1 in district play with Ellinwood and Solomon left to play. They have to win out to advance.

Little River wore down the Eagles, who had only eight healthy players. Levi Swenson ran for 145 yards and two scores, while Peyton Harvey ran for 102 yards and a score. 

Reed Wiens completed 11 of 15 passes for C-G to lead the offense. Travis Unruh ran hard throughout the night and scored twice.

Little River is now 5-2 and Canton-Galva is 1-6.


• Nickerson 28, Smoky Valley 0 — The injury-ravaged Vikings received a 24-carry, 88-yard rushing night from first-time running back Allan Wampler, while Riley Odell added 59 yards.

But the Vikings couldn’t get into the end zone.

Smoky Valley is now 2-5 on the year.

• Moundridge 40, Remington 28 — The Wildcats jumped all over Remington for touchdowns on their first three possessions and cruised from there.

Damian Calderon and Joel Holloway were both over 100 yards rushing. Coach Matt Cole said it was the team’s most complete game as it prepares for next week’s game with Sacred Heart, which figures to determine if it can make the playoffs.

Moundridge is now 3-4 after an 0-4 start.

• Sedgwick 45, Inman 16 — The Cardinals race to a 45-0 halftime lead to send Inman to 1-6 on the season.

Keaton Case scored on a 32-yard run in the second and Kyler Blank added the other touchdown for the Teutons. 

• Hesston 56, Hillsboro 14 — No game information available.
