TABOR, IOWA – The Fremont-Mills football team, ranked No. 2 in the latest World-Herald News Service rankings, held their Corner Conference rival Sidney to just 117 total yards (7 total in the first half) and the Knights won their seventh-straight game Friday night, 35-0.
Junior linebacker James Switzer added two more interceptions to his team leading six picks this season. Fremont-Mills finished with three interceptions. They forced seven three-and-outs.
Head Coach Jeremy Christiansen, in his 15th season with the school, thought his defense contained, made great plays on, and flew the football very well.

With 9:15 left to go in the first half, senior returner Jaeger Powers returned a punt 43 yards for the Knights second touchdown of the game.
The Cowboys were led on the ground by senior fullback Christian Nennemann. He finished with 56 yards on eight carries.
