Flyers football loses in three quarters after poor weather conditions against DGF

By Blake Bartels,


The Flyers football team took on Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton, Friday, Sept. 29. Due to weather conditions, the Rebels and Flyers were only able to play for two and a half quarters, with the game being called with 3:41 left in the third. At that time, the Rebels had garnered a 21-0 lead over Little Falls, and Little Falls was handed its third straight loss after a 2-0 start.

After a scoreless first quarter, DGF broke open the scoring with a 9-yard rushing TD in the second. A PAT put them up 7-0 over the Flyers. DGF added seven more points after a 1-yard rushing touchdown and a PAT near the end of the half, increasing their lead to 14-0.

To open the third, DGF scored another touchdown, this time on a 4-yard rush. They drilled the PAT, putting the Flyers down three scores, 21-0.

The Flyers’ usually explosive offense struggled to gain any traction against the Rebels’ defense in the first half. They were hoping to put their second half adjustments to the test but the weather swooped in and ended the game before they had the chance.

Little Falls only recorded three first downs in the game, and only netted 51 rushing yards and 39 passing yards. Joey Welinski rushed five times for 29 yards and Hank LeClair rushed eight times for 22 yards. QB Gavin Anderson completed 4-of-13 pass attempts, with Eddie Sobiech being his favorite target. Sobiech finished with two catches for 31 yards.

Defensively, Little Falls allowed 137 rushing yards and 105 passing yards. Mark Hughes had the defensive highlight for the Flyers, as he recorded the lone interception.

Falling to 2-3, the Flyers take on Fergus Falls on the road, Friday, Oct. 6.
