The Wichita Force kicked off the weekend with the earlier start on Saturday versus the Salina Liberty. The Force are continuing their strike to make the playoffs for the 2018 season. The I-135 rivalry game is always a classic when these two teams meet up during season play. Coming off of a close win over the Bismarck Bucks, the Force was looking to continue to extend their current winning streak.
The Wichita Force took an early lead to the game with solid performances from the offense, defense, and special teams. Ed Smith was able to lead the offensive scoring charge by adding 4 touchdowns to the scoreboard. Smith was able to find the end zone all night long, from all different parts of the field. Ed Smith was accompanied by another scoring display by Brett Mathis who was able to go 5-5 for PAT’s while also being able to knock down 2 deep field goals to help the high scoring game. On the defensive side of the ball, Marcus Carter was able to rack career numbers and stand as a force to be reckoned with. Carter was able to record 14 tackles and one sack during Saturday’s game. The game was a nail-biter through all 4 quarters, but ultimately the Wichita Force would fall to Salina Liberty 56-47.
The Wichita Force are looking forward to continuing their playoff charge this Sunday at INTRUST Bank Arena. The Force will be hosting the Duke City Gladiators for the final game of the 2018 regular season. Come and support the hard hitters of the Wichita Force. GO FORCE!
