Kimball vs. Holdingford football game

The Kimball Cubs took on the third-ranked team Holdingford Huskers on a damp cool night last Friday night, Oct. 4. The Huskers showed the Cubs early in the game why they hold that ranking. The Huskers scored 27 first quarter points and never looked back. The Cubs settled down after the first quarter and played better football, but could never get any closer. The Cubs opened their scoring on an 8-yard pass from Cameron Hunt to Ben Serbus on a nice catch. The Cubs wouldn’t score again until the fourth quarter on a two-yard run by Mathias Hennen. The final score was 12-48 Holdingford.

The Cubs were led in rushing by Hunt with 62 yards. Hunt also had 162 yards passing with one touchdown. The receiving corp. was led by Hennen with 68 yards receiving on six catches. Serbus had two catches and a touchdown. The defense was led in tackling by Troy Filzen as he had seven total tackles. The Cubs will be looking for their first win of the
W-131004-kimball-homecoming463season against the Eagles of EV-W.

I would like to thank Triple R Grill & Bar for setting up the vendors for the “Tackle Cancer” night Friday night, raising money for research in the fight against cancer. And I would like to send out a great big “thank you” to everybody that supported the football team by test driving a Dodge vehicles. Thank you, Steve Maus and the Booster Club for setting up the fundraiser. We had 191 people test drive the cars. Great job.
