In the Indians previous matchup, Marmaton Valley could not keep up with the explosive play of the Indians as St. Paul prevailed 62-14 dominating the Wildcats and capturing their fifth straight win.

Friday night, the Indians squared off against the Chetopa Hornets (1-5) as they looked to capture their third straight Three Rivers League title. Riding a five-game win streak, it was much of the same for the Indians as they pummeled the Hornets 72-22.

St. Paul has also outscored their opponents this season with an impressive margin of 360-132.

For a good margin of the first half, the Hornets stayed with the Indians returning two kickoffs and throwing for a touchdown. But much like St. Paul’s last few competitions, the Indians blew away their opponent in the second half of the game, sealing their victory.

St. Paul captured its sixth consecutive win as well as its third straight Three Rivers League title.

Junior Adam Albertini had an offensive explosion for the Indians scoring six touchdowns and running for 231 yards. Keaton Kennedy had three touchdown runs as well, and Easton Dean also had a score on the ground.

The Indians will stay home in their next matchup as they face Southern Coffey County for the district championship, October 19. The winner of the next matchup will host the first two rounds of the playoffs.
