Friday night the SkyHawks had their first taste of football in cold weather. The number one ranked Skutt Catholic SkyHawks welcomed the Ralston Rams home to try and improve to 6-0 on the season. The Rams came in at 4-1, and the SkyHawks at 5-0.

Skutt Catholic set the tone early as they drove right down the field with two early touchdowns to put themselves in front 14-0. Later in the first quarter, the Rams attempted a punt, and Senior linebacker Alex VanDyke comes up with the block which results in a safety. At the end of the first quarter the SkyHawks led 16-0.

In the second quarter, the scoring kept coming. Rushing touchdowns from Junior Gunner Ott and Seniors Jack Hassenstab and Tommy Legel to put themselves up 36-0 heading into the locker room.

The reserves saw the field beginning the second half, as almost every player listed got the chance to play. The SkyHawks wore out the Rams all throughout the night, but it came to the point where substitutes made an appearance.

As we made our way deeper into the third quarter, Senior Jack Hassenstab finds the end zone a second time to put Skutt Catholic ahead 43-0. The crowd started to dwindle out as the weather was slightly chilly for a “Hawaiian themed” student section.

In the fourth quarter, Alex VanDyke breaks away for a 52 yard to touchdown, and that eventually seal the deal in a 50-0 SkyHawk victory. “We all learned a lot from our mistakes in the Plattsmouth game. “We pieced a lot of our chemistry together and we played relentlessly.” Senior Kevin Quinn said.

Skutt Catholic improves to 6-0 and will welcome the Waverly Vikings home for their annual homecoming game.
