The Railer football team picked up their third win of the year on the road against the Eisenhower Tigers on Oct. 12. This win came after a loss at home against the Salina Central Mustangs.

“We didn’t have a good week [of practices] going into the Salina Central game, so we really felt like we had to step it up,” said sophomore linebacker Nick Antonowich.

After an 80 yard touchdown drive by the Tigers in the first quarter, the Railers quickly responded with a touchdown of their own, but missed the extra point kick, bringing the score to 7-6.

“Obviously the offense didn’t start of as well as we wanted, and [Eisenhower] shoved the ball down our throat on the first drive,” Antonowich said. “After that first drive we really settled down and stopped them a lot.”

Two interceptions by junior Kolyn Sauceda and a fumble recovery helped cement the Railer victory.

“We knew they weren’t that good of a team,” Antonowich said. “We knew that we were a better team and we just gave more effort and outplayed them.”

The Railers end their regular season on an away game on Oct. 19 against Salina South.
