The Greene County High School football team is 1-4 on the season and 1-2 in Class 2A District 8 after a 32-0 loss in Jefferson on Friday night at the hands of Kuemper Catholic. The undefeated Knights (5-0, 2-0) are ranked first, second, or third in 2A, depending on the poll, and they scored in every quarter en route to the victory. Greene County managed just 24 yards of offense to 327 for Kuemper Catholic. The best scoring attempt for the Rams came following a blocked punt late in the third quarter, but a 31-yard field goal try was short.
Greene County head coach Dean Lansman said the fact the margin was below 35 points was a positive for his team. “We’re just the second team to not have a running clock when playing Kuemper, and we’re the first 2A team to do so.” A continuous clock is used when the margin is 35 points or greater at halftime or beyond. The Knights had won their previous three games by scores of 44-0, 84-0, and 49-6.
The Rams host non-district opponent Roland-Story on Oct. 4 at Linduska Field in the annual homecoming game. Coverage on KG98 begins at 6:30 p.m. with kickoff at 7:30 p.m. The varsity contest will be preceeded by a freshmen game at 4:45 p.m.
