Itâ€™s good to be home.
After Hi-Liner junior varsityâ€™s 42-6 loss in Wahpeton on Sept. 15 and Sept. 22â€™s game at Devils Lake that turned out to be a match against the freshman team as the Firebird platoon took on Carrington, Valley City returned home Monday, guest-officiated by athletic director Marty Bratrud, for a 42-6 handling of Kindred.
Valley City and Kindred were oft-flagged for what head coach Jim Breckheimer called â€śundisciplined penaltiesâ€ť in a â€śgood, gritty win.â€ť
â€śIf we clean that stuff up, there isnâ€™t anyone in the state who can beat you,â€ť said coach Ty Allen.
