Hi-Line Football Roundup


North Star's Jordy Donoven is tackled by a Valier defender during a Six-Man football game last Wednesday in Rudyard.

On Wednesday there were several prep football games taking place across the state. Four of those games included teams from the Hi-Line, and when the dust settled, some had made the postseason and others did not.

In Class C 8-Man action, the No. 1 Chinook Sugarbeeters maintained their level of excellence with yet another win.

The Beeters captured the Northern C with a 58-12 win over Sunburst in Chinook. And with the win, the reigning Class C State Champion Beeters improved to 5-0 in league play and 8-0 overall.

Chinook grabbed 38 first-quarter points to put the game away before it really ever had a chance to begin. The Beeters then put up six in the second, eight in the third and six more points in the fourth. The Beeters' defense gave up just one score in the third quarter and one in the fourth.

Ben Stroh and Zach Molyneaux led the Beeters scoring barrage once again. Stroh rushed for a 54-yard score and a 12-yard score, while Molyneaux tossed two TD passes from 35-yards and one from 21-yards out. Brandon Riphenburg was on the receiving end of two of Molyneaux's scoring passes.

In the first round of the playoffs No. 1 Chinook will face the No. 4 Culbertson-Bainville team out of the east.

In more Northern C action, the Chester/J-I Hawks barely kept their playoff hopes alive on Wednesday.

Hosting the Fort Benton Longhorns in Chester, the Hawks were able to capture the No. 2 seed with a 28-26 win over the Longhorns. The win gave the Hawks a 7-1 overall record and league record of 6-1, with their only loss coming to the Chinook Sugarbeeters just one week prior.

But it was just by the skin of the Hawks' teeth that theybeat the Longhorns. Wyatt Ullery scored on a two-yard rushing TD with 10:50 left in the fourth quarter to trail the Hawks 28-26. But the biggest play of the night came on the two-point conversion when the Hawks stuffed the run attempt and grabbed the win.

After taking a 16-8 first-quarter lead, the Hawks held a 22-20 lead at the half. And after shutting out the Longhorns in the third quarter, the Hawks took their 28-20 lead into the fourth before being challenged by Ullery's score.

Leonard Pugsley scored on a 43 and one-yard rush for the Hawks. Jordan Oraw also scored on an eight-yard run, while Erik Kelly scored on a 14-yard run for the Hawks.

In first round action the Hawks will face Scobey, the No. 3 team out of the east.
