Elgin rebounds, beats Pine Eagle

ELGIN – The Elgin huskies rebounded nicely after suffering a tough loss on October 4th to Adrian/Jordan Valley by beating the Pine Eagle Spartans 50-20.

Quarterback Tristan Simpson seems to be recovered from the injury he suffered against the Antelopes. After the bye week the senior posted one of his biggest games to date. Tallying up 300 all purpose yards and 6 touchdowns on the night, three through the air and three on the ground.

Jordan Palmer was the leading Huskies receiver with 108 yards and three TD’s.

Elgin coach Jeff Rysdam was pleased with the Huskies. “This is was a good win for us, coming off a bye week. We looked a little rusty coming out of the gate, but we were able to clean some thing’s up and get back on track. I feel that the bye week, that we had last week, really benefited us, because we were able to get some guys healed up and healthy again, which is gonna be huge over the next few weeks.”

Jeremiah Simrell lead the Spartans on offense tossing 3 TD’s on 149 yards through the air. Two of his touchdowns were to junior receiver Christian Millhollin while the third was to sophomore Coy Butner. Curtis May also added 47 yards on the ground on 11 carries.

The #13 Huskies (5-1, 4-1) wrap their regular season next week in Crane in a game that has playoff implications. Pine Eagle (2-4, 1-4) hosts #3 Adrian/Jordan Valley.
