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.

The game featured a back and forth nature almost like a boxing match. One team would gain a lead only to see the other side fight back and tie or take a small lead. Pratt took a one point advantage into the locker room at halftime.

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.

4A Division II State Championship Hayden vs Pratt 11-26-16

For every Elven Man team in Kansas, they desire to play on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Playing on this day means they made it to the State Championship game.

This year, the Class 4A Division II Championship pitted the Hayden Wildcats of Topeka against the Pratt Greenbacks.

Hayden entered the game with an 8-4 record, but most of those losses came to teams in higher classifications. Pratt only recorded one loss on their way to the game, and that was from a very highly ranked Hoisington team.

The Wildcats won the coin toss and received the ball. Pratt’s defense immediately asserted their dominance and forced a three-and-out. Then the offense took over and scored their first touchdown easily.

Hayden would score two touchdowns on the day, but those could not compare to the onslaught from the Greenbacks. Pratt went on to win the game, and the State Championship, with a score of 48 to 14.
