(Exira) Heading into the 2012 season Exira-EHK and Glidden-Ralston were being regarded as the teams to beat in 8-Player District 7. Entering Week 5 of the season things have played out that way. Exira-EHK is a perfect 4-0, while Glidden-Ralston's lone blemish was to highly ranked Murray by just two points.
Exira-EHK has cruised through the last two weeks with wins of 46 and 59 points. Last week for the Spartans it was a 67-8 dismantling of Charter Oak-Ute. Nick Peppers found his way to the end zone five times in the game. The junior fullback ran for 110 yards on only five carries and both of his catchers went for TD's. He had a total of 125 receiving yards.
To win a district championship the Spartans will have to get past a very quality Glidden-Ralston team. The Wildcats have posted at least 40 points in every game this season and at least 58 points in their four wins.
