GENESEE The Prairie boys scored just seconds into the game last Friday night, Sept. 1, but Genesee shut down the conversion run after Spencer Schumacher found Derik Shears for a 73-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage.
It was all Bulldogs after that, with Genesee tallying one touchdown in the first quarter, one in the second, two more in the third and a fifth with about four minutes left in the fourth quarter. Genesee out-yarded the Pirates 315-122, while Schumacher carried or threw on just 22 of Prairie's 48 offensive snaps. Genesee outperformed in the turnover count, with Prairie's five offset only partly by two GHS giveaways. Defensively, Jayce Huling tallied double-digits with 12 tackles including three tackles for loss.
Prairie (0-1) is scheduled to host Salmon River next Friday night, Sept. 8.
