”We had some kids step up and play, Josiah Buller has never played quarterback in his life and hadn’t practiced there,” said Inman head coach Lance Sawyer. “Losing Tanner was a big deal early, I thought our kids responded well.”

”We competed but shot ourselves in the foot at times and didn’t capitalize on other opportunities,” said Sedgwick head coach Jeff Werner.  “If this is a top three team in 1A, our kids went toe to toe at times with them.  That is something we can build off of.

”Sedgwick falls to a 0-2 record and hosts Sterling next week.

Inman takes their 2-0 record on the road to Whitewater-Remington.
