Elk Point-Jefferson was determined to play the homecoming football game, but it took overtime on the part of Activities Director Justin Clercx to make it happen.

First, Beresford had to cancel. Clercx arranged a game with Wagner. They cancelled, too, and Clercx had to move both day and opponent. The Huskies finally took the field Saturday, Sept. 26 against West Sioux (Hawarden, IA).

Unfortunately, the Falcons were not inclined to let EPJ celebrate much, as they dominated the game for a 38-0 win.

The Husky offense struggled all night, as West Sioux shut down the passing game completely and limited EPJ to only 126 yards on the ground. One bright spot was Gavin Jacobs, who had a 61-yard run in the first quarter, but EPJ did not capitalize on it. Tyler Goehring and Will Geary left the game early due to injuries, taking away 2 of the team’s receivers.
