Anderson, Hi-Liners Clip Falcons

September 9, 2014

Hanna Field is Devin Anderson’s world, and we are all witnesses to the Hi-Liner show.

Anderson ran for two touchdowns, snagged two third-quarter interceptions and returned one of them for six in Valley City junior varsity’s 36-8 Monday night trouncing of Maple Valley/Enderlin.

“Our line stepped up big, and we had Jake Hovland back from a concussion,” said Hi-Liner coach Aaron Heck of the Hi-Liners returning to strength in continuation of last year’s 8-0 season.

Boys Tennis Stacks Up at the Pack

September 5, 2014

Valley City faced all-State talent-laden West Fargo in Thursday’s 7-2 road loss, but such a challenge is just what a youthful team needs.

“Many positives today,” Valley City head coach Matt Nielson said. “We focused on footwork yesterday and we were better today. We preached location on our shots and the players responded. The three pillars were not upheld to our high standard on Tuesday [a 7-2 home win against Wahpeton], but they were today.”

Singles
Dalton Ondracek lost to Brady Ballweber, 6-2, 6-0.
Brandon Miller lost to Kayan Farahmand, 6-0, 6-1.

Enderlin Scratches Litchville-Marion/Montpelier

Jacey Alber and Morgan Smith spiked three kills, Cheyanne Elsner two.

Caitlin Miedema and Tierra Velure swooped for six digs, Elsner five, Alber and Morgan Gentzkow four, Danielle Eichele and Smith two.

Gentzkow hustled for four assists, Alber two, Elsner and Velure another each.

Elsner and Alber also came up with a block and an ace each.

Deputies Take 3rd Straight from Vikings

September 5, 2014

A long touchdown pass in the final minutes at Lokken Stadium in Valley City on Thursday night gave the Barnes County Deputies a 49-47 win against the Valley City State Vikings, the Deputies’ third triumph in as many years.

“They used my strategy of putting every player on the field at once, so they won,” said Deputies coach J. Reed Anderson, a veritable leviathan in a sea of football knowledge. “[Viking coach and 1490 AM KOVC AM general manager] Tim Ost is wondering if he’ll ever win one.”

Boys Tennis Gets it Done at Home

September 3, 2014

Valley City’s first win of the season, Tuesday’s 7-2 home defeat of Wahpeton, will really help them feel at home when Regionals rolls around.

“After a strong showing in Doubles, the Singles had me worried,” Hi-Liner head coach Matt Nielson said. “No. 1 and No. 3 Singles were both blowouts, but every other match had spots where the match could go either way. This is a big win for us as it gives us an opportunity to get out of the play-in match and guarantees us home court advantage in case we are in the play-in match.”

Singles
Dalton Ondracek beat Kylar Jawaski, 6-1, 6-2.
