Power running met air attacks as Nate Rodriguez and AA No. 5 Valley City opened East Region action on the road against Zak Hernandez and Grafton on Friday, but defense made the difference in the end.
Up 20-14 late in the fourth quarter, Grafton held on a goal line stand for the upset.
Eli Allenâ€™s five-yard first quarter touchdown run completed a 70-yard drive. Hernandezâ€™s two-yard run tied it at 6-6, but Rodriguezâ€™s rushing touchdown and Cody Halversonâ€™s two-point catch in the second quarter put Valley City up 14-6.
Saturdayâ€™s meet in Fargo turned into a major gathering of Eastern Dakota Conference powers and other schools from Minnesota and North Dakota. It was good preparation for EDC [Regionals], which will be coming in only four weeks.
Solid performances were turned in by several Hi-Liners; tough competition, cool weather and a flat course led to several personal-best times. Every one of the Hi-Liner boys competing had a PR for [his] respective distance. Several of the girls had their best times of the season.
