What we saw this weekend
There was plenty of excitement in the air as fall really hit home this past weekend on the Hi-Line.
And here's some things we saw that might not have made it into Monday's Havre Daily News sports pages this week.
How about three interceptions at Blue Pony Stadium on Friday night.
People may not know, but Libby's Jared Winslow is one of the top passing quarterbacks in Class A this season, and Havre High picked him off three times in the Blue Ponies' 27-21 win. Among those was Zach Plum's seventh INT of the season. The Blue Pony senior has to be among, if not the leader in Class A in takeaways this season.
A special kudos also needs to go out to the Havre High cheerleading team and coach Heather Haney. The Pony cheerleaders came ready for Breast Cancer Awareness Month by using pink pom pons at Friday night's game. Pink has become a color you'll see at football stadiums all across America this month, and I thought it was really neat to see it at Blue Pony Stadium on Friday night. That was a cool move by the Pony cheerleaders and one they should be commended for.
One thing none of us saw this weekend was the MSU-Northern football team. MSU-N was off with a bye week. But I took a good look at the Lights' next opponent this past Saturday via the internet.
Northern takes on new Frontier Conference member Southern Oregon on Saturday afternoon, and fans should get ready to see a team which throws the ball all over the lot. The Red Raiders haven't played in Havre since 2005, but they are bringing a crazy passing attack to Havre and they are coming off a 68-22 stomping of rival Eastern Oregon. In that game, SOU threw for 455 yards, in the first half alone.
And with Northern's passing attack clicking on all cylinders right now, if you're a fan of the Lights and you like to watch offense, you don't want to miss Saturday's game at Blue Pony Stadium.
While I did see the Havre High football game on Friday night, this week also marks a time when you can see some younger football hopefuls at Blue Pony Stadium.
The Havre Middle School football teams wrap up the season with games against Malta on Thursday at Blue Pony Stadium. The HHS froshmore team was set to play Browning on Friday afternoon at Blue Pony Stadium, but that game has been cancelled. That game is part of a special doubleheader on Friday night at Blue Pony Stadium.
