9-man football roundup
– Benson County Wildcats junior quarterback Will Rice proved to be a threat in his squad’s 54-0 shutout victory over the Drake-Anamoose Raiders.
For the third score of the first quarter Rice found sophomore tailback/linebacker David Linehan on a 34-yard pass attempt, and then kept it for the conversion. The score after that was a similar story, with Rice finding classmate and wide receiver Keaton Nelsen on an 18-yard pass and then keeping it for the conversion after.
The second quarter’s lone score came from Rice finding senior fullback Garrett Johnson on a 35-yard pass.
To kick off the second half, Rice passed to sophomore tight end Carter Tandeski for 35-yards, and then kept it a third time for a conversion.
– A botched kickoff in the fourth quarter allowed the North Prairie Cougars to snatch a 30-16 victory from the Towner-Granville-Upham Titans.
The Titans were able to score off a Cougar fumble — making it a one possession game-and decided to go for the onside kick. The kick went nine yards instead of 10 and the Cougars were able to get the ball back within Titan territory. Senior quarterback Austin Soukup had two possessions, one to chew up the clock and then one to wind down the game.
The Cougars traveled to Dunseith Friday to take on the Dragons, and will host Thompson next week. TGU meanwhile traveled to St. John on Friday, and will host the Wildcats next week.
– The North Star Bearcats defeated the Dragons, 50-20, last week. The Bearcats traveled to Maddock to take on the Wildcats, and will host the St. John Woodchucks next week.
– For the second time this season the Woodchucks got chucked, losing 30-0 to the Cavalier Tornadoes out of region 2.
