Football updates

After a scoreless first quarter, the Browerville/Eagle Valley Tigers are ahead 16-0 at halftime.

Final: B/EV 30, B-B-E 6.

Holdingford had a 21-14 lead at Paynesville last I heard. The final score was Holdingford 35, Paynesville 14.

I also just heard that Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg defeated Kimball Area by an 8-7 score in a game between two winless teams. The Cubs (0-3) led 7-0 at halftime. The Fighting Saints, who had 94 rushing yards and 95 passing yards in the game, scored a touchdown in the third quarter and got a two-point conversion catch by Weston Gjerde for the win. K-M-S was +1 in the turnover department with one interception and one lost fumble; the Cubs gave up two interceptions and had one lost fumble.

I don't know when I will get to my usual Friday Night Lights (now it's Friday Night Lights III) update this weekend. I have always done that on Friday night after football games, but a lot is going on right now - good, bad and ugly - which is consuming much of my free time and energy. My apologies.
