Dixie Beats Simon Kenton, 36-10
Bryan Burke - The River City News
Dixie manhandled Simon Kenton in a statement game, 36-10, on Dixie's homecoming night, which both ruins the Pioneers' perfect season and jettisons the Colonels to the top of their district standings.

“I don't know who the better team is, but tonight we played better than them,” Dixie head coach Dave Brossart said.

The game featured a bevy of talent on both sides, but despite playing less players, it was Dixie that maximized their offensive weaponry while limiting the dynamic play-makers of Simon Kenton on the other side. Colonels quarterback Drew Moore was terrific as he roasted the Pioneer defense on the read-option play time and again. Moore scored three first half touchdowns on quarterback keepers from the read-option play in a sequence that set an early tone for a Dixie blowout.

Simon Kenton got the ball first and quarterback Cam Racke was immediately sacked by Owen Sammons on the first play. A short while later, the Pioneers went for it on fourth down from their own 38 yard line when the snap to Racke went over his head and resulted in a 23-yard loss on the play. It appeared that there was some early movement on the line which may have thrown off the concentration of the center, but nonetheless, it gave the ball to the Colonels in the red zone and Moore promptly waltzed into the end zone of his first score of the game.

After Moore scored again on the same play, only to the left this time, the Colonels missed their second two-point conversion in a row, making the score 12-0 in the first quarter. Later in the half, Simon Kenton got good field position after a bad Dixie punt that resulted in three points for the Pioneers, making the score 12-3.
