Titans win shootout

September 24, 2010
Pierce County Tribune

CANDO - Offense ruled in the Region 4 battle between Towner-Granville-Upham and North Star. The teams combined for 106 points in a wild game here on Sept. 17.

Fortunately, for the Titans, they scored just enough in a 58-48 win to remain undefeated in region play and hand previously undefeated North Star its first loss.

The Titans led 30-26 at halftime, and then scored twice in the third quarter to build a 20-point lead before the No. 4-ranked Bearcats answered with two scores of their own. However, NS couldn't shut down the Titan offense which tacked on two more scores.

T-G-U senior Travis Smette rushed for four touchdowns and also reeled in a 80-yard TD pass from senior quarterback Tyler Thorson. Thorson threw for another score and ran for two more in the game.

It was the second region game in a row T-G-U had scored 50 or more points.
