    WS Falcons pound A-W Westerners

    By Hank Krause

    The West Sioux Falcons defeated the Westerners, 44-6 in A-W’s season ending game on Oct. 20.

    West Sioux was led by Jake Lynott’s four touchdowns. A-W really played pretty good in the first half as they trailed 12-0 at the break but WS ran away from A-W in the second half. Lynott carried the ball 29 times to rush for 328 yards. I hope he gets rested up for the Falcon’s first round game next Friday.
