The Turkey Valley football team (6-3, 6-1 district) will be headed into the playoffs on a two-game winning streak, having defeated Edgewood-Colesburg (2-7, 2-5 district) 44-6 Friday night in Jackson Junction.
The Trojans earned the No. 2 seed out of the district and will face BCLUW (5-4) in the first round of the Class A playoffs.
Early and often
The Trojans put together a strong performance Friday night at home, playing in the final regular season 11-man football team.
After not scoring on their first offensive drive, the Trojans put it in gear, with Kyle Reicks catching a 19-yard Ryan Busta pass for the score on the next drive. Eric Buckendahl took the two-point play to make it 8-0 TV.
Still in the first, Buckendahl broke tackles and went 39-yards to the house. The two-point pass failed, making it 14-0 at the break.
