High School Football Roundup: No. 2 Roosevelt rolls over Stevens
After two weeks of practice and drills, the state’s three largest football classes finally took to field Friday night to officially kick off the high school football season.
Rapid City Stevens had the tough task of hosting second ranked Sioux Falls Roosevelt at O’Harra Stadium.
The Rough Riders jumped out to an early lead and never looked back en route to a 53-13 win over the Raiders.
Meanwhile, Huron opened the season with a 45-7 victory over Douglas and New Underwood knocked off Rapid City Christian, 20-0.
