The Carson City Mitey Mite football team dropped a close 7-6 decision to the Sparks Steelers on Saturday.
The Steelers scored on their third play from scrimmage, but were shut down the rest of the game. Defensive ends Seth Knox, Alex Myrehn (four sacks), cornerbacks Issac Avina and David Smith did a great job of tackling the Steelers. Quentin Beck, Keegan Ferris and Eli Foutz controlled the defensive line of scrimmage, and Damian Morris came up with an interception.
The offense battled back with Caid Milligan, Schuyler Clark, Nathan McKee and Isiah Abel opening holes for some nice runs by Eduardo Orozco, Vinnie Ferretti and Zach Guthrie. Dawson Main scored the lone Senator touchdown on a blast up the middle. Next up is at the Sparks Wolf Pack on Friday night.
