Powder Valley def. Prairie City 56-20

NORTH POWDER - The No. 1-ranked Class 1A football team in the state had no problems against Prairie City on Friday, Sept. 26, as Powder Valley dumped the Panthers 56-20.

Prairie City lost its second straight Old Oregon League game to fall to 2-2 on the season and 0-2 in the league.

"They're a different class of folks than us," Prairie City coach Chris Wood said. "They have a great team, and they just dominated us. I hope they continue to do good this season. Their quarterback, Todd Baxter, looked great, their receivers were great and there was nothing we could do to stop them."

Prairie City scored just a single touchdown against the Powder Valley varsity, and the rest of the points were against the junior varsity team.

Prairie City hosts Crane on Friday, Oct. 3, and Wood said he is hoping the Panthers get back on the winning track.

"I think we have a good chance of beating them," he said. "They have a good back in Kenny Haigh, but they are young on the line. I think we'll be able to run some stunts against them, and maybe we'll be able to get to their quarterback before he has a chance to do anything. We should have our hands full, but if there was ever a time to beat them, Friday will be it."

Kickoff for the game against the Mustangs is set for 7 p.m.
