Helias set for district opener against Warrensburg

Helias set for district opener against Warrensburg

October 13th, 2011 in News

Everything is focused on Saturday night for the Helias Crusaders.

"When you're coming off a tough loss like we are, it's tough not to concentrate only on the game at hand," Helias coach Phil Pitts said as the Crusaders (3-4) prepare to take on the Warrensburg Tigers (4-3) in their Class 4 District 10 opener Saturday night at Adkins Stadium.

"We don't have a thought about anybody but Warrensburg."

Helias was knocked below the .500 mark for the first time this season with last Friday's 28-10 loss at Hannibal. It reminded Pitts of last season, when the Crusaders lost to the Pirates to fall to 3-4 before rebounding to make the state playoffs.
