Redskins shutout by Nettleton in season opener

POCAHONTAS—The Redskin football team opened their regular season of play Friday night at Schoonover Stadium before a packed house but it would be, unfortunately, all Nettleton as the Raiders shutout the `Skins 31-0.

“Obviously, we hate to lose,” said Redskin Head Coach Charles Baty. “I’m disappointed in that and [am] always going to be disappointed there but on the other end, I just couldn’t be more proud of how our guys went out there and competed. Didn’t feel like we had anybody that back downed or was intimidated. I felt like we went out there and played four quarters of football… even when we got behind. I don’t think we ever gave up. And as a coach, those are things that you can always be proud of. You can always take and find the positive in some things.”
