During the halftime of Saturday night’s football game, the Fort Scott Community College Greyhounds crowned their fall Homecoming king and queen.
Taylor Wade accepted the tiara while John Freeman was crowned the homecoming king.
Other king candidates included Dylan Rice, Ethan Hart, Gavin Miller, Tyler Parker and Mickey Trimble. Queen candidates were Aubrey Smith, Morgan Winchester, ReaCreisha Edwards, Hannah Jackson and Avery Boehm.
But the Greyhounds were unable to protect home field during the Homecoming events. While they prevented Highland Community College from scoring in the second half, the ‘Hounds could not overcome the 20-7 first half deficit and lost 20-17, falling back below a .500 record for the season.
The ‘Hounds struggled to stop the Scotties’ running game early, giving up a touchdown on the very first carry of the game, while their own quarterback was sacked three times. A disputed non-call, which lead to an interception and a quick touchdown, as well as a blocked punt hurt them in the first half.
The greyhounds play their next game Saturday at Frary Field as FSCC holds their Armed Forces Day to honor current members and veterans of the United States Military.
