Defense leads the way early in the season for Grand Island as the Islanders figure things out on the offensive end. That worked out just fine on Saturday as the Islanders capped off back-to-back wins for the weekend with a 49-31 homevictory over Omaha Benson.

Steve Warren knows there’s one number, aside from the final score, that his defensive staff will particularly relish from Friday’s game at Omaha Benson. Omaha Northwest created eight turnovers as the Huskies were in control from the start for a 45-10 victory.
