Falcons pick up first win

By The Mercury

At Alma, the Riley County Falcons earned their first win of the season in style on Friday, toppling Wabaunsee 48-16 on the road.

The Falcons opened the season with a grueling schedule of teams that were undefeated week-after-week, playing Centralia, Clay Center, Silver Lake and Rossville, until Friday night’s game saw a matchup of winless teams looking for a first win.

Riley County will have a home game against St. Marys next week before opening district play with Nemaha Valley. The Falcons other two district opponents will be Marysville and Rock Creek.
