Lentz Lifts Hi-Liners over Trinity in OT

September 7, 2014

Life is about making the most of your chances.

Trailing Dickinson Trinity 26-18 with 1:57 to play, AA No. 4 Valley City pulled off a 64-yard tying touchdown drive, capped by Nate Rodriguez’s one-yard touchdown and John Halgrimson’s two-point right-side end-around with 1:09 left to force overtime.

Jared Lentz recovered a Titan fumble in the extra frame and scored on a one-yard keeper to seal Friday’s Parents and National Guard Night win.

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

September 5, 2014

Enderlin and Litchville-Marion/Montpelier traded points early and often in Thursday’s first two sets in Montpelier, N.D., but, despite Rhandi Larson’s eight digs and three kills, Eagle power prevailed in a 3-0 (25-22, 25-10, 25-13) win.

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.”

Prost, Davies Pull off Sweep

September 3, 2014

Davies led 11-7 and 22-15 in the first set, and the second set carried the trend with an early 12-4 Eagle lead.

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.

Ondracek, Miller Come Up Big in Jamestown

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.”
