McPherson’s perfect seventh-grade football season was halted on Thursday when Derby North came to town to pin an 8-0 setback on the Bullpups.

“It was a tough game. Both teams played tough defense, but unfortunately we were unable to get in the end zone,” MMS coach Brandt Busse said. “Offensively we were shut out for the first time this season. We had a drive going early, but had a mishap which slowed us down. We struggled throwing the ball with the wind. Defensively we played well. We had one miscue, which they scored on, but overall the guys played well.”

MMS is now 3-1 on the season and plays Thursday at Salina Lakewood.
