But the Bronco offense was efficient, gaining 281 yards on 57 offensive snaps, including 149 rush yards on 38 carries. Quarterback Frankie Edwards ran for 84 yards and a pair of 1-yard touchdowns on 23 attempts.

“We challenged the offensive line to go out and be physical,” Prestidge said. “I think they really gained some confidence being able to run the football.”

And when the Broncos needed to throw, they generally succeeded. Edwards was 10-of-19 for 132 yards, including 27- and 32-yard completions to senior Dakota Warrington, both going into the wind.

Warrington suffered a deep leg bruise last week against Yukon and didn't know if he'd play until Friday morning. He had four catches for 73 yards.

“I was told three different things by two different doctors,” he said. “We decided I'd come out in the morning, and if I could run, I could play.”

Prestidge heavily praised his team's attitude and effort Friday night, two components that didn't always come naturally to last year's squad, which won only three games. Next week, the Broncos will look for their third win of the year in as many games when Stillwater visits.

“It's too early in the season not to have mistakes, so we'll watch the tape and see what we did wrong,” Prestidge said. “But our attitude and effort on both sides of the ball was really good, and that's what we ask for.”
