Friday's road trip to Hills/Beaver Creek found the Elliott boyz on 2 different buses for the 3 1/2 hour trip that took us to within 12 miles of Sioux Falls SD. Our defense was outstanding, holding HBC to just 68 yards of total offense, but our special teams gave up 180 return yards and a turn over deep in our own end, lead to a 22 - 0 loss. The raiders are 2-3 on the year, with 3 more games before play-off seedings will be decided. Next week we have Janesville on Monday for JH and JV and then travel to Alden/Conger on Fri for a key conference match up that will go a long way in deciding home feed for the play-offs.

Today was youth duck hunt in Minnesota. All 3 boyz shot a duck today but Dalton bagged the first one of the day. It got too hot for the boyz so they called it a day.

We celebrated parents night with a big win over JWP 26-6. The boyz we all pumped up and it was a beautiful night for a ball game. This win will make the 3 hour bus ride to Hills Beaver Creek a little easier. Tabor made big improvements and got to play both sides of the ball. After the game we hosted all parents and players out to our house for a player bonfire and parent social. The house and yard was full! All the parents brought a dish to pass and we served up some BBQ pork sandwiches and the kids ate and ate.

The boyz had a Jr. High game on Monday it was perfect night for a game. Dalton had 4 sacks and pancaked this big boy who made the mistake of reaching for his neck. Tanner had 4 tackles and played the entire game. Tabor is one of the captains on the JV and played 3 quarters and then needed to come out to save up for Friday nights game. Tabor and Dalton's team won and Tanners team came up short by 6.

Saturday Tanner and Dalton had a 3 game scrimmage in Aldon. The boyz all had a great time and the 3rd game Tanner got to play quarterback and guard. Dalton man handled a couple of 8th graders pretty well. After a day of rest for all 3 boyz they will be back on the field for a Jr. High game on Monday @ 4:30 and Then Tabor will play some Jr Varsity Monday night at 6:00. Then THANK the GODS we have 2 home games in a row. Tanner and Mom rode the fan bus on Friday to Granada for only $3.00 each and Tanner sat in the back with all these girls!
We had a pretty rough night in Granada loosing 32-20. The injuries started to pile up before the half which was tied 14-14. Short summery we ended the game with the freshmen class holding their own. Tabor was out by the end of the 3rd with a injury
