The Kimball Cubs lost to host Eden Valley-Watkins Friday, Oct. 11, by a final tally of 20-6. Despite the valiant effort put forth by Kimball, they just couldn’t take advantage of the ample field position throughout the game. “We played hard all game long. We didn’t cash in when we moved the ball inside the EV-W 20-yard line. Of the four times we got down there, we only scored once; and that just doesn’t get it done,” Coach Jamie Leither said. Next up for the Cubs is the final regular-season contest with conference rivals Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted, on Wednesday, Oct. 16, in Kimball. The Cubs hope to upgrade their 0-7 mark, and the Lakers look to move to .500, currently possessing a 3-4 record.
