The Dierks Outlaws met little resistant Friday night against district newcomers, the Mountain Pine Red Devils, and picked up a 40-8 win.
The Outlaws are now 2-2 on the season while the Red Devils dropped to 0-4. The Red Devil senior high program has dropped down in the numbers already and they have forfeited their scheduled game with the Mineral Springs Hornets. The fate of the Red Devils’ season remains unknown at this time.
The Outlaws will host the Foreman Gators for a conference game this Friday night. Kick-off is set for 7:00.
