Pagefls rival North Star. ' North Prairie’s Nicholas Mears had a huge night or the Cougars as the squad downed reginal The Star A really big eat fight North [Prairie downs North'Star in wild display of nfiense By Jason Nordmark Of The Star Defense was at a premium last week when the North Prairie Cougars took on the North Star Bearcats, but one player overcame it to record a career-making night. On a-near perfect night for foot- ball, two teams with explosive of- fenses went toe—to-toe. In the end the Cougars played enough defense, in- cluding forcing three turnovers, to come home with a 64-44 victory. For a contest played in August, it had a little bit of a late season edge. Both teams were called for a late hit in the first quarter and it was readily apparent both teams were hyped for the action. NP Head Coach Josh Keller talked about the atmosphere sur- rounding the game. “North Star gets up to play us and we get» up too,” Keller said. “It’s turned into kind of a little bit of a ri- valry and both sides- really give it their best." I . The Cougars best was enough on Friday. North Star took to their air on August 30, 2021 Kelly Davis, left, and Zoey Weasel bounce up into pass protection formation during Friday night’s home game against Williston. Below: Wyatt Goulet blew by a blocker to get at the quarterback. Houston Davis and Parket Walette each stand about 6’4”, giving Mon- ette a pair of big targets. “Both those kids are so tall and so athletic,” Gourneau said. “You can throw it up to them and more often. then not they can come up with a big play.” Gourneau said Williston would double one of the wideouts but couldn’t double them both. Whomever was open was getting an opportunity to make a big play. Wal- lette came up with two of the three scores for the Braves. Receiver Stephen Leonard came up with the third. Despite the loss, Gourneau said his team showed flashes of competi- tiveness throughout the game. “We had Williston coaches credit us for being as sharp as we were for not playing at all last year and that Was nice to hear. Our defense played well at times and we had a few chances'to score but just didn’t make the big play,” Gourneau said. i V The Bravest. will hit the road this Friday and play in Jamestown. Braves (Continued from Page 11) almost every play, trying to use their ' ‘ speedy receivers to chUrn through the Cougar defense. North‘Prairie came Above: Zyler LaRocque rushes the Four Winds quarterback and forces a quick release. At left: Jay- dyance McCloud gets an unassisted taCkle at mid- irp with two interceptions to halt a pair of drives. Junior Mitchell Leas came up with one while sophomore Blake Mattson picked off the second. ' Mattson turned his'interception into a pick six. The Cougars forced a third turnover late in the first half by forc- ing and recovering a fumble. Keller talked about the effort his defense had to put up in the face of a relent- less Bearcat aerial attack. “We were in position to make some plays and we did, but Dane (Hagler) was throwing some terrific balls right where they should be and sometimes you just have to give them credit for completing those passes. We tried to make some adjustments, 1 including using a safety that We don’t normally do, and we came up with enough plays to get the job done.” Hagler did complete a variety of passes, but the Cougars also let their presence be known. On North Star’s first possession, Hagler dropped back to pass and although he got the at- tempt off, he was hit, rather hard, by fellow sophomore Nate Tastad. The. early knockdown was almost like Tastad’s way of saying “I’ll be here all night.” Conversely, NP’s offense never gave away a possession and in a high scoring affair,'the extra possessions were key. “I was happy with how we took care of the ball,” Keller said. “I was also happy with how the team re- sponded when they did give up some points. We’re a yOung team but if we got beat on defense, the kids didn’t hang their heads and instead went right back to work offensively and found a way to move the ball.” The entire Cougar offense was un- stoppable through most of the game. With Tastad, Wyatt Dunlop and Isaac Herbel anchoring the line, a bevy of Cougar speedsters cut through the , Bearcat defense at will. Mears had his way with the North Star defense all game long. When- ever he wanted, Mears picked up huge chunks of yardage on the ground. By the time the lights went out in Cando, the Rolla junior had compiled 375 yards‘of total offense while rushing for six touchdowns and passing for one. Tyrell Yoder continued his solid play early in the Season with a strong rushing performance. Receivers Carter Cassavant, Leas and Deryk Thomas, gave the Bearcats fits as they zipped, darted and at times ran through the defense. Tyrell Yoder turned the corner on a ig gain against North Star. The 2—0 Cougars will stay on the road this Friday when they play in Leeds. The game was be played at 4 pm. instead of the usual 7 pm. kick- off. The Wildcats are 0-2 on the young season. —— Woodchucks—— (Continued from Page 11) Guarding the outside was LaRocque, who’s listed as 165 pounds in the program but that’s ei- ther a typo or he was weighed wear- ing all his equipment. No ‘matter the case, the quick- footed sophomore was in the backfield as often as the Four Winds quarterback and disrupted several plays. , The Woodchucks are now 1-1 on the season and will hit the road for New Rockford on Friday for a show- down with the Rockets. r——-——_————-.-—_——-——1 VEr—-—-————‘ 2021 Waterfowl Rest Area 1 Proclamation Summary I The North Dakota Game and Fish Department declares certain areas as waterfowl rest areas from Sept. 25. 2021 through Dec. 31, 2021.
