The Plainsmen opened last week’s game with a 35-yard run by fullback Domonic Wendell. He was just a step away from breaking it for a touchdown. His run, followed by 22-yard scamper by Alex Patrick, set up the Plainsmen’s first score of the game.  

Emotions washed over Plainsmen football players as they saw their season come to an end after a third-round playoff loss last week.

The Perkins County Plainsmen saw their season end Tuesday night, falling to No. 4 seed Medicine Valley 26-48.
