NRHEG wins third straight at GFW
By JIM LUTGENS
NRHEG football coach Dan Stork was concerned heading into last Friday’s game at Gibbon-Fairfax-Winthrop. The Panthers did not practice Thursday, instead spending the day sandbagging and helping New Richland recover from the flood.
It didn’t take them long to ease Stork’s mind.
Sam Prigge hit Cole Staloch with a 65-yard touchdown pass on their first play from scrimmage and the Panthers steamrolled to a 58-8 conquest at Winthrop.
“I was concerned how we would perform,” said Stork, whose squad improved to 3-1 with its third straight victory.
“It was a very quiet bus ride,” said Stork. “The guys were tired, but they came out strong and dominated all aspects of the game.”
