NIXED: Nix, JV Hi-Liners Shut Down Kindred

September 30, 2014

It’s good to be home.

After Hi-Liner junior varsity’s 42-6 loss in Wahpeton on Sept. 15 and Sept. 22’s game at Devils Lake that turned out to be a match against the freshman team as the Firebird platoon took on Carrington, Valley City returned home Monday, guest-officiated by athletic director Marty Bratrud, for a 42-6 handling of Kindred.

Valley City and Kindred were oft-flagged for what head coach Jim Breckheimer called “undisciplined penalties” in a “good, gritty win.”

“If we clean that stuff up, there isn’t anyone in the state who can beat you,” said coach Ty Allen.
