Cardinals to return to Cody

Harvard holds off late Deshler rally for 52-46 win to reach six-man semi-final round for second straight year

BY TORY DUNCAN

A feeling of being a bit too amped up came across the mind of Harvard Head Football Coach Scott Trimble Friday night, as his Cardinal football team held off a talented Deshler Dragon football team in the opening round of the 2017 six-man state playoffs. Harvard stopped a late fourth-quarter Dragon rally to improve to 9-0 on the year, with a 52-46 win.

“Our kids knew going in what was at stake, they knew that if we get the win over Deshler we get a rematch with Cody-Kilgore because Cody had already beaten Walthill (50-6) earlier in the day. I think we were a bit too amped up,” Trimble said.
