(Exira) Exira-EHK picked up a huge victory last Friday night when they doubled up on Glidden-Ralston 40-20. They were able to overcome early turnovers to get teh win which keeps Exira-EHK undefeated and puts them in the driver's seat for a district championship.
Exira-EHK rumbled for 358 yards in the big win. Drew Peppers went for 166 yards and two scores while Trey Sander totaled 160 yards and three scores. Nick Peppers saw limited carries due to an ankle injury but still added 32 yards plus 16 tackles defensively.
The Spartan's remaining schedule features district games against Coon Rapids-Bayard, Ar-We-Va, and Heartland Christian. Coon Rapids-Bayard this week could likely be the biggest hurdle standing in the way of an undefeated regular seasons for the Spartans.
Exira-EHK Coach Tom Petersen says the Crusader's air-oriented attack is unlike any team they have seen so far this year. Coon Rapids-Bayard's 1,376 passing yards ranks #1 in 8-Player football and has been putting pressure on defenses all season.
