Kimball football team falls short at Pierz


The Kimball football boys had a date at Pierz High School stadium on Friday, Sept. 20, but unfortunately, it was the hosts that would do most of the dancing. The Pioneers put a pounding on their guests, 41-19, moving to the five hundred mark at 2-2. The Cubs now sit at 0-4 overall. Getting offensive was no problem for Pierz, as Tyler Millner scampered for two touchdowns on 167 of the team’s 349 rushing yards, while quarterback Ethan Lochner completed 

70 percent of his passes for an even 100. “The Cubs played hard the first half, and were in the game, but a couple of injuries in the second half wore us down. Pierz took advantage of that, ike a good team should,” Kimball coach Jamie 
Leither said. Kimball quarterback Cameron Hunt tallied three TDs on 191 yards rushing and threw for 92 yards on 19 attempts. Cubs’ wide receiver Mathias Hennen snatched seven balls for a gaudy 82 yards.
