The Custer Wildcat football team defended their home turf well, taking a 41-0 win over Bennett County in high school football action last Friday.
Bennett County will play their final game of the season Friday at Pine Ridge as the last game on the schedule, McLaughlin, has been cancelled because McLaughlin forfeited their season because of lack of players.
“In the game last Friday night, we did not play well,” said head coach Tucker Risse. “We didn’t show up to play. This last week, we did not practice well either. Kids didn’t come to practice when they should have, we had kids quit because of lack of playing time, so they say, and it just wasn’t a good week for us. All these kids want is rewards handed to them. They do not have an attitude of working hard to get where they need to be. Their efforts, attitudes and evidence, the win loss column reflects this. It is a personal decision to want to be great, it is another level to work hard and get there. The kids want to be great, now they just have to work hard to become great.”
