Minden was at longtime foe Cozad on September 29 for a gridiron clash and the Haymakers prevailed in a 53-6 win. The Whippets’ record stands at 1-5 ahead of a visit from 5-1 Kearney Catholic on Friday.
Action in the first quarter didn’t necessarily portend the one-sided final outcome. Cozad returned the opening kickoff 65 yards for a touchdown and added the two-point conversion. However, Minden responded at 6:01 when Eddie Gonzalez capped off a drive with a two-yard TD burst. The conversion failed but Cozad’s lead was cut to 8-6. Cozad then came back at 3:02 with a 30-yard TD run and added another two-point conversion. The period ended with the Haymakers up 16-6.
Unfortunately, the Whippets could not produce any more scoring the rest of the way although the same could not be said for Cozad. The Haymakers cashed in on short TD runs of three and one yards and two more two-point conversions in the second quarter to go into halftime leading 32-6.
