VCSU Routs Comets in Home Opener

September 8, 2012

When the Valley City State University football team beat Mayville State University last year, the Vikings had a bit of trouble stopping the Comets' option-based offensive attack, allowing 254 rushing yards.
What a difference a year makes.
When the teams played again Saturday in VCSU's home opener on Shelley Ellig Field at Lokken Stadium, the Vikings won again, 38-13.
All afternoon long, the defense consistently stopped the rushing attack, limiting Mayville to 140 yards of offense and only 90 from the ground.

Late Turnovers Hurt Hi-Liners in loss to Wahpeton

September 8, 2012

Turnovers never help an offense, but Friday night, they seemed to hurt the Valley City High School football team a little more than normal.
After finishing the first half of their 22-16 home loss to Wahpeton with an eight point lead, the Hi-Liners struggled to find offensive momentum. And when they found bits of momentum, they were cut short by late turnovers that gave possession back to the Huskies.
"Turnovers killed us tonight, they really did," Valley City coach Scott Roehrich said.
The total for the second half was only three, but all came at crucial points.
