The Valley City State Vikings were eliminated in the first round of FCS action in Helena, Mont., Saturday afternoon by the No. 2 ranked Carroll College Fighting Saints. Offensive miscues plagued the Vikings early on, and they could not regain their composure against a forceful Carroll team on the road. The Vikings went into the playoffs ranked No. 12 in the NAIA, and exit with an overall record of 9-2.

It was a chilly preview of the the not-so-warm welcome they are apt to receive from the Carroll College Fighting Saints on Saturday.
On a blustery Wednesday afternoon practice at Shelly Ellig Field, the VCSU Vikings sported sweats under their practice jerseys and athletic tape over the ear holes of their helmets to keep the cold at bay. General griping arose about the frozen water coolers, and the lightly frozen turf crackled crisply underfoot.
At Wednesday night's meeting of the Barnes County North School Board, members discussed forming a building authority to pay for the construction of a new school, or to continue using the current campuses.
The board encouraged BCN district residents to offer feedback on the proposal.
A special meeting will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 7 p.m. in the Spiritwood school building for public opinion and possible action by the board.

The National Weather Service reports that many northern parts of the state got several inches of snow, with 6 inches falling in Minot. Law enforcement agencies in the area reported more than 100 incidents of vehicles sliding into ditches or other vehicles.
An temporary easement drawn up by States Attorney Brad Cruff and signed by Barnes County Commission President Cindy Schwehr releases the county from any liability on four power poles that are perilously close to the pavement on County Road 20.
The poles are approximately four feet from the roadway, and are temporary replacements for poles that were damaged in a fierce windstorm during the early morning hours of July 15.

First round NAIA playoff match-ups were announced Sunday afternoon, with the No. 12-ranked VCSU Vikings pitted against the No. 2 Carroll College Fighting Saints.
