The Sandhills/Thedford football team fell just short in its bid for a state championship on Monday as Kenesaw edged the Knights 46-40 to claim the Class D2 state title.  The game went back and forth and featured several momentum swings. Sandhills/Thedford finished with 349 rushing yards for the game led by Reece Zutavern who had a team high 177 rushing yards on just 9 carries and Dane Pokorny also eclipsed the century mark with 111 yards.

It was a tremendous effort by Sandhills/Thedford that fell just short as the Knights finish as the Class D2 state runner-up for the second year in a row. Congratulations for Sandhills/Thedford on completing a great season at 11 and 1.
