The Girard Trojans football team, led by first year head coach Neal Philpot, has earned the Craw-Kan "Your Community Technology Partner" Team of the Week for their 53-0 victory over Southeast-Cherokee last Friday on homecoming.
It marked the second win of the season for the Trojans with it also being the second shutout of the season for their defense. Quarterback Kyler Siebert and running back Camden McFarland led the way for the Trojans offensively. McFarland had five scores on the night in three quarters and Siebert had one. Girard led 21-0 at end of the first quarter and 33-0 at the half as it was all Trojans, all night. Cole Cuthbertson also scored a defensive touchdown in the game for the Trojans in the second quarter.
Girard (2-4) will open up 4A-II district play this week on the road as they travel to Garnett to take on the Anderson County Bulldogs.
