Scott City, Kan.—For the third time in the last four weeks, the Scott City football team will hit the road. This time, it will be their longest trip of the season, as they will face the Russell Broncos for their second district game of the season.

Russell is 0-4 on the year, and 0-1 in district play, after a 60-0 loss at home to Southeast of Saline last Friday night. The Trojans took the opening kickoff for a touchdown, and led 54-0 at the break, before winning 60-0.
