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.”

September 1, 2014

Dalton Ondracek picked up a Singles win before he and Brandon Miller scored a Doubles win in Thursday’s non-conference trip to Jamestown, but the Blue Jays took the match, 7-2.

“We have three new players to tennis this year who are playing Varsity: Riley Miller, Collin White and Hunter Burchill,” Valley City head coach Matt Nielson said. “[In] each match, these three played their best match to date. I’m impressed with all three’s attitudes, coachability and belief that they can win the next point.”

Hi-Liners Hold Up, Hang On

September 1, 2014

If you thought Valley City was in trouble at Dickinson on Friday night, you haven’t met these Hi-Liners.

Down 14-0 in the second quarter of a game delayed by bus trouble, Valley City scored three times in the second half off three Midget fumbles and held for the upset at Dickinson State’s Fisher Field.

“It was guts, especially with a 2A team playing a 3A team,” Hi-Liner head coach Scott Roehrich said. “They manhandled us last year [a 48-0 Midget opener at Hanna Field], but these were not the same two teams playing as last year.”
