Valier sophomore Reed Briggs rumbles down the sideline Saturday in Box Elder.

The Valier Panthers football team picked up a dominating 57-0 win against a short-handed Box Elder squad last week. Box Elder began the game with eight players and were down to five early in the second half. The teams played five-on-five for a couple drives into the third quarter and the game was called in Valier’s favor. 

“The boys played well,” said head coach John Briggs. “Cam Stoltz and Reed Briggs combined for eight touchdowns in the game. We are happy with the win and the fact we move to 2-2 overall and 2-0 in conference play but it was a little disheartening and discouraging. I hope Box Elder can get healthy, finish their season and hopefully get more boys out for next year.”

The Panthers will be back on the field for a conference tilt against Dutton/Power-/Brady in  Power on Saturday. Kickoff is slated for 2 p.m.
