Webster Opens with Win; Siren, Frederic and Grantsburg Start Seasons Friday

Friday, August 28th, 2009 at 5:30 am

The Webster Tigers start their 2009 football season with a blowout win.  The Tigers route Lake Holcombe 36-6.  Tigers will try to stay unblemished next week at home against Clayton.

The Siren Dragons will try to end a three year winless drought when they host Northwood/Solon Springs.  The last win for Siren came on the season opener against Webster in 2005.

A pair of teams that also struggled last year will try to get back on track early in 2009 when Grantsburg takes on Spooner, Friday.  The Pirates were 0-9 a year ago and the Rails were 1-8, but Grantsburg head coach Keith Lehne likes what he’s seen out of his team this off season.
