There may have only been a handful of local football games over the weekend, but here were still some interesting results.
On Friday, the Northern C 6-Man Big Sandy Pioneers put their unbeaten streak alive, but came up with their first loss of the season. It was a tight win by No. 4 Valier, but an upset nonetheless, as Valier defeated the No. 3 Pioneers 46-44 in a high scoring affair.
There were not statistics submitted from the Big Sandy loss.
The Pioneers have another huge game this Saturday when they travel to North Star.
Glasgow 66, Harlem 0

The Wildcats are now 1-4 on the season. Harlem hosts Wolf Point Friday night.
