Last Friday, the Big Elks traveled to Newcastle for their week eight matchup against the Racers. The defense played well in the first half only allowing the Racers to score 14 points. Caden Culver answered one of those touchdowns with a 15-yard touchdown pass to tight end, Mason Price, leaving the score 7-14 at halftime.

After halftime it was a quiet third quarter with neither team scoring, then Newcastle broke the silence scoring a touchdown early in the fourth, but missing the extra point. Caden Culver answered by throwing a 73-yard touchdown pass to receiver, Dylan Abla, to keep the Elks in the game.

The Racers ended up running away with it, scoring two more touchdowns and leaving the final score 13-34. “We played well in the first half but we need to learn to play a full game and finish, this is a game we should have won we handed that game to them,” said Caden Culver. 

Tonight, they host Anadarko at 7:00 p.m.”I feel like we should go into every game with the mindset to win even though we lost last time. I have hope,” said Chrishawn Thompson.

Senior night will begin at 6:30 p.m., and senior members of the football team, softball team, cross country teams, cheer, band and choir will be recognized. During halftime, fifth through high school band students will come together for a mass band performance.
