9-man football roundup

By Staff | Sep 23, 2016

The Towner-Granville-Upham Titans almost had it.

But it was quarterback Brody Cahill on the ground who snatched the game back for the North Prairie Cougars last week in a come-from-behind, 24-22 victory in Towner.

The Titans got the lead early on a two-yard keeper for quarterback Kolter Schell. In the second quarter, Schell connected with Lane Bachmeier on an 11-yard touchdown pass and then ran it in for two more points to put the score at 14-0 at the end of the half.

Cahill then put the Cougars on the board on the first of three short runs and conversions, starting with a four-yard run for a score. The Titans answered back with a short burst of yardage from runner Shayden Luna, and Schell connecting with Cole Bethke on a conversion.

The Titans then had no answer for Cahill in the fourth quarter, as he capped off a drive with a two-yard touchdown, and another with a six-yard run.

The Cougars-who at the time of this writing sit at 5-0-had their homecoming game Friday against the Dunseith Dragons, and next week travel to Drake to take on the 3-2 Drake-Anamoose Raiders.

The Titans-who are 3-2 as of this writing-also played at home Friday against the St. John Woodchucks, and travel to Maddock next week to take on the 0-5 Benson County Wildcats.

Raiders de-claw Wildcats, 32-6

Sophomore quarterback Will Rice was able to score on a 36-yard run.

But it came almost too late for the Wildcats, as the Raiders established a commanding lead in a 6-32 loss.

After a scoreless first quarter, Raiders quarterback Seth Fahy connected with Brett Filler on a short, five-yard pass for a score. Fahy then connected with Pete Buri on a 25-yard pass to end the first half at 16-0.

In the second half, the Raiders chewed up the field on long yardage, with Fahy running for a 66-yard touchdown in the third quarter and Buri running for a 70-yard score in the fourth.

Benson County faced the Surrey Mustangs on Friday in Surrey.
