9-man football roundup
With the semifinals ending last week and state championships on Friday, the football season is officially over.
For nine-man football, the Thompson Tommies faced the New Salem-Glen Ullin Holsteins at the Dakota Bowl in Fargo on Friday.
(sub.) Holsteins defeat Cougars, 38-14
In recent contests, the North Prairie Cougars were usually the first to get on the scoreboard.
That wasn’t the case last week, as the Holsteins eliminated the Cougars from state contention in a 38-14 matchup.
With less than two minutes to go in the first quarter, the Holsteins were first to act with sophomore quarterback Evan Henke capping a drive on a short keeper. Henke connected with senior tight end Shane Forster for the conversion, and later a 65-yard pass for the second score of the game.
The Cougars were unable to get on the board until just over a minute left in the first half, with senior quarterback Brody Cahill finding Jared Loing on a 38-yard pass completion. Cahill and Loing connected on the point after try.
Cahill then put up the last points of the half, as well as the game for the Cougars, on a 15-yard quarterback keeper.
Sophomore running back Garret Soupir would end the game in the Holsteins’ favor on two runs, one from nine yards out and the other from 28.
