Nate Rodriguez and Lucas Jury ran for touchdowns and Jared Lentz threw another against No. 3 Wahpeton at home on Friday night, but this one was for the dogs as Husky junior quarterback Carson Zarak threw two scores and ran for three more in a 42-18 win.
Valley City opened with a 70-yard drive that Rodriguezâs four-yard touchdown run completed, but Wahpeton junior running back Tyler Wohlers picked up three yards for a score, Zarak one yard for another with senior wide receiver Zach Bellmoreâs two-point catch, and a 14-6 lead through the first stanza.
Mikaylah Ross and Casey Engelhard both had eighth-place finishes in their varsity races at the Valley City Bill Jansen Blue White Invite Cross Country Meet. The conditions turned windy, rainy, and sloppy for the varsity races, but still some decent times were posted on the day.
That South Border Kuntz kid sure plays a mean football.
One-hundred eighty-five pound senior running back Brayden Kuntz scored two of his four touchdowns in the span of a minute in the fourth quarter at LaMoureâs Townsend Field on Friday to give the No. 5 Homecoming Region 1 rival Loboes their first loss, 32-26.

Freshman Riley Miller defeated Fargo South junior Owen Duncan, 7-5, 1-6, 6-4, on the road Thursday, an 8-1 Hi-Liner loss, in Valley Cityâs final league tuneup before a do-or-die Regional match.
âWe finished eighth in the EDC [1-7 EDC, 1-9 overall], which means that we will host the play-in match this coming Monday at 4:30 p.m. against Wahpeton [0-8 EDC, 0-10 overall],â Hi-Liner head coach Matt Nielson said. âWinnerâs team season continues on Thursday at Regionals. Loserâs team season is done, but top seven will still play the individual tournament next Friday and Saturday in Grand Forks.â
Name something that Hi-Liner volleyball has plenty of.
Wahpetonâs two-set comeback made it a family feud on Thursdayâs Parents Night at the Hi-Liner Activities Center, but the fifth-set survey said âheartâ as Valley City never trailed for the 15-10 win and the 3-2 (25-10, 25-9, 22-25, 19-25, 15-10) match to avoid becoming the Huskiesâ first Eastern Dakota Conference victims.
Valley City led 9-2 in the opening set for the 25-10 edge, and 10-1 in the second on the way to a 25-9 count.
Hi-Liner boys tennis is getting better, just in time for Sept. 25âs Regionals in Grand Forks.
Dalton Ondracek and Brandon Miller won their first No. 1 Doubles match at the West Fargo Invite on Sept. 13, splitting sets in the match to get to the semifinals, which would have guaranteed them fourth, but fell in the super tie-breaker. Ondracek and Miller won two matches on the consolation side and played to seven-all in the fifth-place match, an eight-game pro-set, but South proved too much and won, 9-7.
Fifty-eight-year-old Dale Gallagher took first in Saturdayâs 5k Sheyenne Valley Shuffle, from which participants set out from and finished at Valley City State University, edging 38-year-old David Musgrave by only 18 seconds.
