Hi-Line Football Roundup
Another weekend of Hi-Line football is in the books, and yet again, the wins and looses came by way of big deficits.
The Northern C Chinook Sugarbeeters came close to pitching their second straight shutout on Friday. But still earning a huge win and playing in Chinook, the Beeters defeated the league leading and previously undefeated (5-0) Power-Dutton-Brady Titans 54-6.
With the upset win the Beeters improved their league record to 4-1.
The Titans only score came in the first quarter when Aable was able to punch in a four yard run for a score.
But the Titans first quarter score couldn't compete with the Beeters surging offense on Friday.
Tyler Molyneaux led the Beeters with five rushing touchdowns. He scored two in the first quarter from three and one yards out, and three in the second quarter from six, 25 and eight yards out.
Chris Haider and Ben Stroh also had one receiving touchdown apiece for the Beeters, while Zach Molyneaux had one rushing touchdown.
Chinook is at home Friday to face Tri-Cities.
