The Madrid High School football team kicked off their 2013 campaign
at home with a win over Des Moines Christian.
Owen Gibbons ran for a 3-yard touchdown in the first half,
then Nick Novotny scored twice in the third quarter, with 70- and 10-yard rumbles,
as Madrid mauled the Lions by a score of 30 – 7.
The Tigers take to the road next week at Van Meter,
who was shutout by Earlham Friday night, 35 – 0.
