Briefly: Sikeston routs Perryville to start district football play

Saturday, October 15, 2011

PERRYVILLE -- Heading into Friday's Class 4, District 1 opener at Perryville, Sikeston wanted to throw a few wrinkles into their arsenal just to give district foes something to think about for the next few weeks.

In a 58-0 victory against the Pirates, Sikeston showed new formations, the "swinging gate" on extra point tries, and a lot of different players getting touches.

While the new tactics worked well against the young and inexperienced Perryville squad, head coach Kent Gibbs is also hoping future opponents Cape Central and Farmington will take note, giving them something extra to prepare for in the coming weeks.
