South Football Stumbles in Season Opener

Football Game at Fort Osage    The Park Hill South football team kicked the season off last night at Fort Osage High School.  Unfortunately, South did not pull off a victory and were defeated 7-25.   South’s only touchdown came in the second quarter from senior corner, Bryan Robinson, off of a pick six.

    Senior captain, Austin Miller said, “I was disappointed in the results of the game because it did not reflect the team they we can be.”

     Before the game head coach Mark Simcox said, “I expect a win.  We are young but we have been working hard.  To win we need to keep them under three touchdowns and have no turnovers.”

    Unfortunately, South could not keep Fort Osage under three touchdowns, but they did successfully accomplish their goal of no turnovers.

    “As a team our strength is defense.  We have the most experience there and have a lot of guys that have played for three years.  We also have a lot of skill on offense,” Simcox said.

    The team’s weakness is that they are young in a few places.  The team had four players that had never played on a Friday night before.

    “I’m happy with the way we made the game competitive, but in the end we did not play to the level we should and we broke down.  We have talent in many areas and we must capitalize on that,” said Miller.

  The team hopes to work hard this week in preparation for Blue Springs on Friday at Preston Field.
