The Varsity Broncos football team is 5-0 for the first time since 1990! The stands and student section were packed and ready for another Bronco win under the Friday night lights on Oct. 1. 

The Desoto game was one of the biggest games of the year because Desoto was supposed to be a major rival. DeSoto has always been very good competition in our league, as well as Paola.

“It felt good to beat DeSoto, it’s been a while since we’ve beat them,” said Zach Knowlton, 12. 

In the first half Knowlton scored 2 touchdowns, Daniel Mitchell  scored 1 touchdown, and Fletcher Pankey scored 1 touchdown; leading 28-0. 

The game ended with the Broncos defeating DeSoto 28-14. Feeback is ready to focus on the Tonganoxie game Oct. 8.

“We don’t want to peak now, we want to peak later,” said Jason Feeback, Head Coach.

Other news on the game was the outgoing student section. The student section was bigger and louder than ever. The theme for the game was PJ Night because the game followed with the movie Hocus Pocus.
