Pratt Football vs Hoisington 8-31-18

Week one of the high school football season saw two Central Kansas League teams square off as the Pratt Greenbacks traveled to face the Hoisington Cardinals.

Going into the game, the buzz was on Pratt’s #5 Travis Theis moving from running back to the quarterback for the team. An All-State rusher last year, many wondered how calling the plays would affect his stats. The answer, no change at all.

Theis recorded twelve rushes for a total of 204 yards and four touchdowns. He accounted for all but one of the Greenbacks touchdowns.

On the other side of the ball, Pratt’s defense held Hoisington scoreless all night long. The final score was 34 to 0.

2018 Hoisington Winter Jam Boys Championship – Pratt Greenbacks vs Hoisington Cardinals 1-20-18

The last game of the 2018 Hoisington Winter Jam saw the Hoisington Cardinals host fellow Central Kansas League member the Pratt Greenbacks. This year marked Pratt’s first time in the tournament and the championship game. The Cardinals came into the night as back to back champions of the Winter Jam.

In the fourth quarter, Hoisington took advantage of working the ball inside and some free throws to gain a lead. The Greenbacks tried to launch multiple three-point shots, but none would fall. The Cardinals won the game with a 47 to 41 score.

They now have won the Winter Jam for three consecutive years.
