Elkers enjoy win, but are looking of bigger things

Staff Writer

JOHNSONBURG - A happy group of Elkers and fans enjoyed the post-game celebration on Memorial Field following Ridgway’s 28-14, District 9 Large School Championship clinching win over Brookville Friday night. A second straight division title was nice, but the players and coaches have their sights set on a bigger prize – a second straight District 9 Class AA championship and a fourth overall (won Class A in 2016 and 2017).
The velvety, new antlers of these Elkers needed a bit of rubbing following a shocking 25-21 loss in Kane Aug. 30 (2nd week). A miraculous 95-yard touchdown pass on the Wolves' last possession left the herd shocked and down after giving up a fourth-quarter lead.
