It's rare for a football game to be decided on a single play, but a match up between the Griggs/Barnes County and the Maple Valley/Enderlin Falcons is not an everyday occurrence.
An incomplete pass by the Titans sealed an 18-13 victory for MV/E in the season-opening non-regional contest on Friday in Tower City.
After the unsuccessful throw on fourth down and 11 yards from the goal line, the Falcons took a knee to run out the final 66 seconds of the game.
It was just over two years that Amy Foell Harbaugh passed away from cancer but the Valley City native and alumni of both VCHS and Valley City State University, is still fresh in the minds of local runners.
