  • Stevenson looks like the real deal against Indian Trail Aug 30, 2014 1:50 AM
    On opening night of football at Stevenson, the home team took apart the visitors from Kenosha Indian Trail.

And instead of postponing the game until today, the two teams agreed that the Pats deserved a win. And so Stevenson avenged a loss to this club a year ago. And the Pats had to play only the first quarter and a quarter of the second quarter.
