The Kiowa County High School Maverick football team fell 50-0 against the Attica/Argonia Titans during their Oct. 14 game.
“They (Attica) have been a solid program for the last couple of seasons,” said Maverick Coach Tye Remy. “I knew they were going to be well coached and a tough out. I thought we were going to be able to compete better than we did, but we were expecting a challenge.”
Attica had 119 yards rushing, Kiowa County -17. The Titans averaged 4.8 yards per play, the Mavericks .9 yards.
The start of the game was critical, Remy said.
“If we would have been able to come out and have some success, particularly on the offensive side of the ball, confidence would have been able to build and we probably would have competed better than we did,” he said.
Attica scored its first touchdown at 7:36 in the first quarter, making the score 6-0.
In the Mavericks’ drive, Brandon Detwiler punted to the team’s 32 yard line. The Titans returned it for a touchdown, followed by a conversion run, bringing the score to 14-0 at 5:46 in the first quarter.
Cale Thompson ran to the Mavericks 10 yard line and fumbled the ball. It was recovered by the Titans for a touchdown, bringing the score to 20-0 at 4:58 in the first quarter.
Attica scored a three yard touchdown, followed by a successful conversion run with the clock at 48 seconds in the first quarter, making the score 28-0.
With the clock at 2:34 in the second quarter, the Titans ran for a nine yard touchdown and conversion run to make the score 36-0.
With 48 seconds left in the half, Attica scored another touchdown and conversion, bringing the score to 44-0.
Attica scored in its final touchdown, ending the game early at 6:37 in the third quarter.
“I feel we played poorly,” Remy said. “Two weeks in a row we have come out and played worse than what we are capable of and this is something I would like to get corrected before next week.”
The Mavericks’ record is now 1-6. The team will have an away game in Coldwater this Friday against the 6-1 South Central Timberwolves.
