The Indians football team won 41-0 in their Suburban Middle Seven Conference opener over the Belton Pirates Friday, Sept. 13. Junior running back Zach Domanski scored seven points on a one yard touchdown in the first quarter to start to rout. Indians Head Coach Brock Bult thinks the win is good for the team.

“This is big for the kids, they needed it,” Coach Bult said. “We got off to a rough start in week one. It was good to come out here and dominate a team we should dominate. I know they’re feeling good right now, but we’re gonna go watch film and we’re gonna start getting ready for next week and get better.”

Senior Dominic Myers, who was previously positioned as a wide receiver, played as running back. Myers rushed 167 yards on 28 carries and two catches for 18 yards. Myers also achieved a one yard touchdown in the third quarter. Myers feels the game boosted the team’s confidence. 

“I’m feeling good,” Myers said. “It always feels good to get that first win. From here on out we just have to strive to get better. Be on the lookout for us because this first win gave us a lot of feel.”

Freshman wide receiver Larenzo Fenner scored a touchdown in the first quarter. Fenner caught four passes for 90 yards. Sophomore running back Jaden Penamon scored on a four yard run to wrap up the Inidan’s win. 

The Indians defense held the Pirates to just 85 total yards. The win brings the Indians to 1-2 for the season. The team takes on North Kansas City on the road on Friday Sept. 20 at 7 p.m. The game will be broadcast by KFOI Sports on the NFHS Network.
