The Chinook Sugarbeeters survived a second-half charge from the Victor Pirates Saturday afternoon in Chinook. But the Beeters managed to hang on for a 36-24 win over the Pirates in the first round of the Class C playoffs. Chinook (9-1) advanced to the quarterfinals where the Beeters will face top-ranked Fairview in Fairview next Saturday. The Warriors ended Chinook's season in the Class C semifinals last year.
Meanwhile, a dream season came to a shocking end for the Northern C champion Chester/J-I Hawks on Saturday. In the opening round of the Class C playoffs in Chester, the undefeated Hawks were bounced form the playoffs by Drummond, 60-14. Drummond was the No. 4 seed from the Western Division, but the Trojans had just two losses on the season. C/J-I led 14-0 in the first half and never scored again.
