Hi-Line Football Roundup

Havre's Malachi McIntosh, right, runs away from the CMR defense during a junior varsity football game last Thursday at Blue Pony Stadium.

With the weather turning colder, the football games get more important and, last Friday night in Fort Benton, the Longhorns played one of their most important football games in years.

Unfortunately, Fort Benton was unable to get the best of Centerville, as the Miners scored 36 unanswered points in the second half to win the critical Northern C B Division matchup 62-40.

The Miners grabbed the early lead on the Longhorns, going up 14-6 after the first quarter, but by halftime, Fort Benton had tied the game up at 26-26. Then, after two third-quarter touchdown passes from Garrett Diekhans, the Longhorns led 40-26, before the Centerville onslaught overwhelmed them.

The Longhorns (4-2, 3-1) could have clinched a berth in the 8-Man playoffs, but with a loss, Fort Benton will now have to play its way in by knocking off the second or third-place team from the Northern C A Division. The Longhorns will wrap up their regular season on the road in Rocky Boy Friday night.

Big Sandy 56, North Star 26

In another game with playoff implications this past weekend, the Big Sandy Pioneers hosted the North Star Knights Friday night in a big Six-Man North Division showdown.

Yet, the Pioneers, who are looking for the first playoff berth in five years, crushed the Knights by a score of 56-26 Friday night in Big Sandy. The Pioneers were paced by Weston Allderdice, who ran all over North Star to the tune of 386 rushing yards. He also scored six rushing touchdowns. Bailey Spicher threw four touchdown passes in the loss for the Knights, who also got a pair of touchdown receptions from Dylan Miller, as well as a touchdown reception each from Devon Miller and Thomas Nerat.

The Pioneers (5-1, 3-1) will play at Valier Friday night, while the Knights will look to bounce back Friday night at Heart Butte.

Chinook 34, Simms 14

While Fort Benton was trying to clinch the top spot in the Northern C B Division Friday night, the Chinook Sugarbeeters were just trying to keep their hopes alive for reaching the playoffs.

And thanks to a 34-14 home win over Simms Friday night in Chinook, the Beeters were able to do just that. Chinook, which has now won two straight games following a 1-3 start, trailed the Tigers 8-6 after the first quarter, but were able to eventually overtake the Tigers, thanks to four rushing touchdowns, two from Sam Dumas, one from James Christensen and another from Chase Moxley. The Beeters also got a touchdown pass in the third quarter from Trajan Hannum to J.T. Hauer.

The Beeters (3-3, 2-2) can advance to a play-in game for the 8-Man football playoffs with a win this week on the road at Centerville, along with a loss by Cascade against Simms. Both games will be played Friday night.
