|Holyoke football starts season with lopsided 46-0 win|
|Written by Kyle Arnoldy|
Football season is finally here and Holyoke’s boys of fall made their season debut at home by putting a 46-0 whooping on Perkins County, Neb. Friday, Aug. 30.
The Dragons shined under the newly installed stadium lighting at Max Bernard Field, dominating all aspects of the game en route to the blowout victory.
“I am very pleased with how we came out and hit them,” coach John Zilla said.
With last year’s 12-34 Holyoke loss to the Plainsmen still fresh in the memory of the coaching staff and players, Zilla said the team was eager to face off with Perkins County and redeem themselves.
After forcing the Plainsmen to punt on their first possession, the Dragons set the tone early as they moved the ball down the field with ease. On the first offensive play of the game for Holyoke, sophomore Bradley Cumming took a handoff for more than 30 yards to move the Dragons into Plainsman territory.
