Yankton's Gavin Haselhorst, 24, celebrates after taking down Sioux Falls Jefferson's London Kolb, 3, during their football game on Friday at Yankton's Crane-Youngworth Field. Yankton, which lost to the Cavaliers 38-35, dropped to fifth in both South Dakota Class 11AA football polls, announced Monday.

The Yankton Bucks fell to fifth in Class 11AA in both the South Dakota Media and South Dakota Football Coaches’ football polls, announced Monday.

Yankton, 2-2 after a 38-35 loss to Class 11AAA third-ranked Sioux Falls Jefferson, hosts Pierre (3-1) for Pioneer Day on Friday. The Governors are second in the media poll and third in the coaches’ poll, receiving votes in both.
