DES MOINES - Waukee has 2 losses on the season but the Warriors proved that record is a bit deceiving.  Waukee cruised past Roosevelt 48-13 to start district play 1-0.

The game was over after the first quarter when the Warriors jumped out to a 34-0 lead.  Nolan Roethler and Hunter Deskin each had pick sixes.  The Roughriders, who started the season 3-1, kept fighting but the deficit was way too big to pull out of.

Both teams are now 3-2 on the season.
