Cozad knocked off Minden 29-6 on October 4 in windy, drizzly, cool conditions in the Whippets’ homecoming contest. Minden fell to 3-3 and has a road game at undefeated Adams Central on October 11.
The first quarter was scoreless and fairly quickly played as both teams ran the ball almost exclusively, eschewing the pass in the wet conditions. The Haymakers had driven to the Whippets’ three on one possession but went nowhere on their first three downs. Then on fourth down, Jasper Birkestrand covered up a Cozad fumble as the Dawgs’ defense bent but didn’t break. The next time the Haymakers had the ball, they again drove deep into Minden territory but were forced to give the ball up on downs at the Whippets’ nine.
