Whippets Defeat Gibbon 40-0

Minden was strong on offense, defense, kicking and returns in a season-opening win over Gibbon 40-0 on August 30 at Kuper Field in Minden. 

The Whippets scored the first time they had the ball, taking just four plays to cover a short-field of 28 yards. Eddie Gonzalez ran in from the five and then added a two-point conversion run giving Minden an 8-0 lead at 8:05. 

On Gibbon’s third possession of the first period, Gage Fries stepped in front of a Buffalo pass and sped for a 50-yard interception return TD. Irvin Hernandez booted the PAT and with 56 seconds to go the Whippets were up 15-0. That was the score as the period ended.
