For prep football fans, a triple header in the same venue is a rare treat.
That was the situation a week ago when the FCA Bowl at USF Stadium offered, in a way, a "Friday Night Lights" football frenzy.
Beginning at 1 p.m. last Friday, the FCA Bowl featured gridiron action filled with phenomenal plays and a lot of smacks and cheers. Highlights included Gregory's Jared Bartling accounting for five TDs and 208 yards rushing, including an 80-yard TD run in a win; Flandreau's Jacob Patterson scoring three times and accumulating 181 yards on the ground in a Flandreau victory; and 9A #1 Canistota holding on against 9AA #1 Bridgewater-Emery/Ethan in a battle of #1s with a series of key defensive plays late to halt the Seahawks.
While three games in one night might feed the football needs for most people, not me. I went to another game and then used Twitter, Facebook and email to continue to feed my thirst for football information.
Every Friday, it is the same. I need to know what is going on. Last week, the FCA Bowl was a great venue for a lot on the spectacular side but so were other venues. Examples include Tri-Valley's Logan Koopman exploded for 236 yards and three TDs in a single half; Deubrook Area rolling to a win as star halfback Ryan Knutson went over 200 yards (218) for the second straight week, and Cole Langer rushing for 167 yards and two TDs as #1 Dell Rapids went into the den of #2 West Central for a 28-14 win.
While the action on the field undoubtedly feeds my passion for the game, the environments of football on Friday night are experiences to be cherished. Head to Hartford sometime and feel the passion of those gathering at their field, surrounded by blue and white on nearly everything. The West Central environment is indeed special but represents just one of many similar locales that love their football team.
When you go to these games, you experience the pride of the respective teams, the passion of its fans, the unbridled enthusiasm of cheerleaders and student cheering sections and bands gjve their all in entertaining gathered masses. Along the way you experience the beauty of prep football, sometimes with matters other than football.
One example involved the national anthem at Hartford. On a nearly windless evening, as the West Central band played the Star Spangled Banner, a magical voice (from the Dell Rapids section) carried the words of America's song into the night. I don't know the man and I am not sure why his was the only voice singing the USA anthem but the soft whisper of his voice meshed with the band's sound to provide a moving experience. So whether it is a beautiful rendition of the nation's anthem. marching bands, fans going nuts or the play on the field, these games - err, events - are always worth the price of admission.
How we did and what's ahead: In week three, a 2-3 record pushed our overall season mark to 9-6 (.600). It is getting tougher week by week to get the games right but the picking percentage is still at .600. A week ago, we missed on Lincoln's win over Roosevelt, Hills-Beaver Creek's upset of Edgerton-Ellsworth and #1 Dell Rapids' win over West Central in Hartford. We were right on 9A #1 Canistota (barely) and 11AA #1 Washington. Over the past two years, we now stand 113-28 or .801 percent. This week, more top games are on the docket. Our picks include 9AA #3 Deubrook Area, 9AA #2 Kimball/White Lake, Pierre, 9A #1 Canistota and 11B #3 Flandreau ending top-ranked Tri-Valley's 15-game winning streak. Now to the games. Below, we have a breakdown of five top area games in our "Focus on Five" preview.
11B #1 Tri-Valley (3-0) at 11B #3 Flandreau (3-0), Friday, 7 p.m.
Tri-Valley Notes: The defending state champions in 11B, Tri-Valley, #1 in the KSFY-KWSN poll, has opened with three straight wins to push their winning streak to 15 games as they meet rival and third-ranked Flandreau on Friday. Tri-Valley, which own a 109-to-45 points edge over its opponents, is coming off a 52-14 win over Elk Point-Jefferson, when they rushed for 532 yards. The Mustangs are led by the explosive running back Logan Koopman, who has 42 carries for 554 yards and seven TDs in 2012. Koopman has gone over the century mark three straight games (138, 180, 236). Pulling the strings on offense is senior quarterback Brett Page, who has nine carries for 42 yards and has hit 7-of-15 passes for 131 yards and three TDs. Logan Otto has 12 carries for 109 yards and five receptions for 105 yards and three TDs. Sam Mader has added 22 carries for 130 yards and two TDs. Tri-Valley, which has 121 carries for 1,059 yards and 13 TDs on the ground, will again pound the ball this week. "I think our last game was our best of the season. We have improved every week in all three phases of the game. Our offense is really starting to become explosive. We are gaining experience up front and that is showing in game play," said first year coach Steve Bazata. "Flandreau is an excellent all-around team that is well-coached, fast, and they play extremely hard. If we don't show up ready to play, it will be a long Friday night."
Flandreau Notes: #3 Flandreau has opened the season with three straight wins, utilizing a rushing game that averages 380 yards per game. Overall, the Fliers have averaged 41.3 points per game and 410.7 yards in total offense. Flandreau, which owns a 124 to 22 overall scoring advantage against opponents, has recorded consecutive shutouts, led by the play of Carter Ziebach (25 tackles), Jacob Scofield (25 tackles), Kyle Scofield (16 tackles, interception) and Mitch Hansen (16 tackles, FR for TD). To knock off top-ranked Tri-Valley, Flandreau will have to establish their running attack and avoid turnovers. Jacob Patterson leads the Fliers with 48 carries for 423 yards and five TDS. Averaging 8.81 yards per carry, he has two games over 100 yards this season (178 vs. Deuel, 181 vs. SF Christian). In his career, Patterson now has 931 carries for 1,377 yards. David Parsley, who is on the verge of 1,000 career yards rushing with 940, has 17 carries for 204 yards and four TDs this season. Mitchel Foster has added 15 carries for 189 yards and four TDs. Parsley and Foster both average over 12 yards per tote. The Fliers offense is directed by first-year quarterback Jace Christiansen, who has completed 7-of-15 passes for 92 yards and rushed 18 times for 193 yards and two TDs. "I think we are playing well for this part of the season. I feel our group of kids will not settle with being where they are at right now. We have placed some high expectations on them and they have placed every higher expectations on themselves," said head coach Chad Stadem. '"We know we need to see a top team like Tri-Valley, which has established themselves as the cream of the crop and a lot of that has to do with their coaches and community pride. We will have to play at a very high and mistake-free level to compete against the Mustangs."
Inside slant: Will defenses control play and will the rushing attacks on both sides be able to move the ball? Will either team take to the air? With two of 11B's top backs (Patterson of Flandreau and Koopman of Tri-Valley) going head to head, who will gain the upper hand? Will a special teams play determine this game?
Coaches: Chad Stadem of Flandreau, 5th season (ninth overall), 64-29, .771 overall; 31-12, .721 at Flandreau; Steve Bazata of Tri-Valley, 1st season, 3-0, 1.000
Season Results: Flandreau has defeated Deuel, 36-22; McCook Central/Montrose, 49-0, and Sioux Falls Christian, 39-0. Tri-Valley has a 41-23 win over Canton, plus a 16-8 win over Garretson and a 52-14 decision of Elk Point-Jefferson.
Series Records: Since 2004, the teams have met each other 11 times with Tri-Valley winning 10. A year ago, Tri-Valley took a 29-13 decision at Colton. In 2010, the teams split with Tri-Valley winning the regular season matchup, 7-3, but Flandreau taking the playoff game, 12-7, as the Fliers went on to capture the 11B title. Since 2004, Tri-Valley has a 180-to-69 scoring advantage against the Fliers.
Bottomline: This will be a battle won in the trenches. Both teams will pound the ball, utilizing the talents of talented backfields. While Tri-Valley has the veteran Brett Page running its offense, Flandreau has a new quarterback in Jace Christiansen, who has stepped in and played well. Both teams feature strong rushing attacks with TV averaging 353 yards and Flandreau, 380. The Fliers are at home in this battle, which may prove to be a big factor.
Who Wins? In this crucial 11B matchup, we see Flandreau prevailing, 19-16 in a game featuring a lot of ground work and tough defense.
9A #4 Hanson (3-0) at 9A #1 Canistota (2-0) Friday, Canistota, 7 p.m.
Canistota Notes: So far in 2012, Canistota, who is in the midst of one of the great winning runs in 9-man history, may not look like the same team that racked up a 1,247 to 99 points advantage over the last two title-winning campaigns. But, in winning a pair of close games, the 9A #1 Hawks have defeated two very talented teams in Howard (20-16) and 9AA #1 Bridgewater-Emery/Ethan (16-8). Despite the close calls, the Hawks have extended its winning streak to 26 games, the fifth longest in 9-man history. "Being tested each of our first two games has definitely made us a better football team," said Canistota head coach Lenny Schroeder. "Both Howard and Bridgewater-Emery/Ethan are very good football teams and it has forced our team to be focused. During those first two games, our kids battled with their backs against the wall and really rallied together as a team," he said. Canistota is led by one of the best quarterbacks in the 9-man ranks in Cody Bunger, who has completed 14-of-19 passes for 262 yards and two TDs. He has had encountered some trouble running the ball with 26 carries for just 41 yards and two TDs. That may change. A year ago, he accounted for six TDs and had 10 carries 256 yards rushing, including TD runs of 84 and 56 yards, against Hanson. During his stellar career, Bunger now has 129 carries for 1,306 yards and 21 TDs and has completed 68-of-112 passes for 1,216 yards and 21 TDs. He has 42 career TDs passing or running. His running mate Alex Robertson has 21 carries for 179 yards and two catches for 67 yards and a TD in 2012. In his career, Robertson has 186 carries for 1,449 yards. Also for the Hawks, Eric Tieszen has 18 carries for 145 yards and a TD with two receptions for 91 yards this season while Nick Hofer has six catches for 67 yards. The Hawks are averaging 131 passing yards per game and 182.5 on the ground. On defense, Tieszen leads the Hawks with 26 tackles while Robertson had 20 tackles and two sacks. Boone DeKramer has added 24 tackles while Jason Van Winkle has 19 tackles and a sack with Dylan Seubert providing 11 tackles and two sacks, including one late in the game against Bridgewater-Emery/Ethan that helped stymie a late Seahawks' drive. "Hanson is another tough Corn Belt team. They have a great tradition of producing quality football teams and are well coached. This should be another intense Corn Belt football game," said Schroeder.
Hanson Notes: The Beavers will look to establish its ground game against Canistota when the two teams meet on Friday. Hanson, which owns a 90-to-54 overall scoring edge against opponents, has won the fourth quarter, 32-12, a key factor in the victories. "We are continuing to get better as we are understanding both our offensive and defensive schemes and responsibilities," said veteran head coach Jim Haskamp. "Canistota is the favorite to repeat. They have a solid core group of players back from their last two championship seasons. We are going to have to play well in all phases of the game," he added. The Hanson offense is directed by quarterback Tyler Pringle, who has completed 8-of-14 passes for 247 yards with four TDs. Pringle, who is completing 57.1 percent of his passes, has also rushed 27 times for 137 yards with a pair of TDs. Jacob Paradeis leads the ground attack with 51 carries for 366 yards and four TDs. He has scored 32 points (four TDs, four two-point conversions). Jordan Marquardt has 50 carries for 222 yards and a TD along with five receptions for 125 yards and three TDs. Also for Hanson, Mason Mayer has added 21 carries for 64 yards and a TD along with four receptions for 140 yards and a TD. Overall, the Beavers have 152 carries for 775 yards (5.10 per carry) and eight TDs. Hanson has also been stingy on defense, allowing just 286 yards on the ground and 359 yards through the air for 645 total yards. The Beavers have five sacks, five interceptions, and a fumble recovery. Marquardt leads the defense with 21 tackles, an interception and two sacks. Pringle has 12 tackles and a pick while Paradeis has 11 tackles and an interception. Mayer has 10 tackles and two interceptions.
Inside slant: Can Hanson continue its impressive start against a team that has won 26-straight? Will Bunger break loose against Hanson? Does a deep and talented Hanson rushing game break some big plays against a stout Hawks defense? Which team gets the upper hand in the rushing game? Does the game swing on a special teams or defensive play?
Coaches: Lenny Schroeder, eight seasons, 109-69, .612; Jim Haskamp of Hanson, 28 seasons, 160-76, .678.
Season Results: Canistota has defeated Howard, 20-16; and 9AA #1 Bridgewater-Emery/Ethan, 16-8. Hanson has wins over Woonsocket/Wessington Springs/Sanborn Central, 22-14; Avon, 30-14; and Freeman, 38-28.
Series Records: Since 2004, Hanson has defeated Canistota (Canistota/Bridgewater - co-op until 2010) six of nine times. However, the Hawks have won three straight from the Beavers. A year ago, Canistota won the regular season encounter, 48-0, and then upended the Beavers, 42-0 in the playoffs. The Hawks also had a 20-8 win in 2010. Prior to that Hanson controlled the series, winning six straight from 2004-09. In that span, they outscored Canistota/Bridgewater, 241-47, and had three shutouts. Over the past two seasons, Canistota owns a 110-8 scoring edge over their 9A rivals.
Bottomline: These two teams have combined to win the last three 9A titles (Canistota, 2011; Hanson, 2009 and 2010) while Canistota has won two straight titles and are on the fifth longest win streak in 9-man history. This match up features teams that can move the ball through the air and on the ground. Look for Pringle and Bunger to put the ball in the air and produce big plays. While Canistota throws it a bit more than Hanson, this game will be decided by which team win the ground battle. Look for Canistota to establish the run and create defensive pressure that will force a few key turnovers.
Who Wins? While Canistota has had a couple of close calls this season, they are one of the top teams in 9-man football ranks regardless of class. We think they will handle the Beavers, 32-18.
9AA Elkton-Lake Benton (2-0) vs. 9AA #2 Deubrook Area (2-0), White, 7 p.m.
Elkton-Lake Benton Notes: The Elks, 3-6 a year ago, have opened the season by shutting out two opponents by a combined 88-0 margin. Elkton/Lake Benton, which opened eyes with three interception returns for TDs (Heath Schindler, Braden Carmody, Jake Van Dyke) against Oldham/Ramona/Rutland, has compiled 530 yards rushing. The Elks' offense have been led by Nick Delaney with 21 carries for 137 yards and two TDs, including 80 vs. Lake Preston. Heath Schindler has 18 carries for 109 yards while Nathen Krog has 14 carries for 94 yards. Quarterback Trevan Farnham leads the offensive attack and has 12 carries for 106 yards and a TD. He has also completed 6-of-11 passes for 105 yards, including 78 vs. ORR. Schindler, and Ethan Pearson leads the defense with 10 tackles each. Head Coach Tal Farnham is pleased with the Elks' progress early in the season. "Our kicking game has been really good. We have four picks for TD's in two games, which has been helpful. Now, we get two-year starter Chase Gorter back from basic training. He has looked good this week. We have a big test playing Deubrook. We look forward to Friday night."
Deubrook Area Notes: In rolling to a pair of wins, the Dolphins have outscored opponents, 123-54, and are one of the highest scoring teams in 9AA at 61.5 points per game. Deubrook Area has rolled up over 400 yards rushing in each of the two games. They had 34 carries for 407 yards against Colman-Egan and 42 carries for 431 yards against Estelline. In total offense, they have had 434 and 570 yards in back-to-back outings. The offense is led by the talented running back Ryan Knutson, who has had two straight 200-plus rushing games. He had 23 carries for 215 yards and three TDs against Estelline and had a career-best 303 yards on 15 carries with six TDs (TDs scored and yards rushing are school records) against Colman-Egan. He now has six career games over 100 yards and has totaled 1,701 yards and 19 TDs in his career. The offense is directed by senior quarterback Taylor Olson, who has completed 15-of-31 passes for 166 yards and three TDs. Olson also has 10 carries for 107 yards and TD. Dalton Kruse has eight carries for 136 yards and two TDs. The Dolphins also feature standout wide receiver/returner Riley Hanson who has four carries for 44 yards and a TD, two kickoff returns for TDs (60, 83) as well as three receptions for 80 yards and a TD. Hanson has made five kickoff returns for 203 yards and three punt returns for 76 yards.
Inside slant: Will Deubrook Area's offense continue to score gobs of points? Will the Elks defense shut down the Dolphins? Will Knutson be stopped or does he continue to shine? Which quarterback has a better night?
Coaches: Tal Farnham, Elkton-Lake Benton, 22 years, 108-89, .548. Adolph Shepardson, Deubrook Area, second season, 31-65,
Season Results: Deubrook Area has defeated Colman-Egan, 55-26, and Estelline, 68-28. Elkton-Lake Benton owns wins over Oldham-Ramona/Rutland, 49-0, and Lake Preston, 39-0.
Series Records: Deubrook Area has owned the series since 2004, winning seven of eight games, four straight since Elkton/Lake Benton became a coop. A year ago, the Dolphins won 26-16. They also won 36-8 in 2010, 34-0 in 2009, 30-0 in 2008. When Deubrook Area played Elkton, the Dolphins won 42-6 in 2007, 32-28 in 2005 and 15-14 in 2004. Elkton had a 66-28 win in 2006.
Bottomline: Both teams have been impressive early with Elkton-Lake Benton unveiling a strong defensive squad. With the return of Chase Gorter, this team will get better on offense as they seek to be in the thick of 9AA matters as the season progresses. Deubrook Area has showcased a devastating ground attack, keyed by Knutson. One of the keys for the Elks will be to keep an eye on the explosive big-play guy Riley Hanson, who has a TD rushing, receiving and two by special teams. So, who has the upper hand, Deubrook Area's explosive or the Elks' big play defense? Good question and one that we find out in White on Friday.
Who Wins? We like Shepardson's Dolphins to continue winning with a 33-25 win.
11AA Brookings (2-1) at 11AA Pierre (2-1) at Pierre
Pierre Notes: The Governors took one on the chin in week one, losing to #5 Yankton, 27-21, due to four costly turnovers, including three in Pierre territory. Since then, the Governors have rebounded with impressive wins over Aberdeen Central (37-7) and Huron (40-13). Overall, the Governors have had a solid start to the season. They own a 98-to-47 points edge against opponents, including 77-to-20 in the past two games. Junior quarterback Alex Gray leads the explosive Governors attack, completing 13-of-39 passes for 297 yards and six TDs with just one pick. He also has 29 carries for 92 yards. Pierre features a strong rushing game. In three games, Pierre has produced 761 yards on 141 carries, led by seniors Matthew Svendsen, who has 39 carries for 270 yards and three TDs, and Austin Wagner with 39 carries for 246 yards and a TD. The Governors also feature Jace Jerome in the running attack and he has added 25 carries for 130 yards and two TDs. Austin Christopherson leads the Govs' receiving corps with six catches for 169 yards and three TDs, including one for 86 yards. Tight end Lane Severyn has three catches for 63 yards and a TD but just played one game. Shay Reinke, (2-29-TD), Garret Pochop (1-30-TD) and Kyle Mammenga (1-6) also see action out wide. On defense, Pierre has four interceptions, including a pair of pick-sixes by Wagner (40 yards) and Matt Blaseq (23 yards).
Brookings Notes: The Bobcats, 6-5 a year ago and led by new head coach Lee Schmidt, has opened 2-1 in a surprising start. With graduation losses last spring claiming the bulk of the skill position players, the Bobcats opend with a 31-14 win over Huron and then shutout Mitchell, 28-0, in week two. While their start was halted by a 38-0 loss to #2 Brandon Valley, Brookings has been a team to watch with a lot of new faces. So far this season the Bobcats have outscored opponents, 59-to-52. Senior quarterback Kaleb Vig directs the offense and has completed 31-of-66 passes for 361 yards and three TDs. The rushing game is led by Mikey Daniel, who has 45 carries for 360 yards and three TDs. In the week two win over Mitchell, Daniel had 15 carries for 228 yards, including a 98-yard TD run, the longest play from scrimmage in South Dakota this season.
Inside slant: Will Brookings find offensive balance against Pierre? Can Wagner and Svendsen continue their impressive play and spark the Governors offensive attack? How effective will Gray, who has been little inconsistent, be against the Bobcats? Can Daniel finding running room vs. the Governors? Will a special teams play decide what should be a hard fought ESD battle?
Coaches: Joe Kramer of Pierre Riggs, fourth season, 19-16, .543; Lee Schmidt of Brookings, first season, 2-1, .667
Season Results: Pierre has lost to Yankton, 27-21; and defeated Aberdeen Central, 37-7, and Huron, 40-13. Brookings has a 31-14 win over Huron and a 28-0 victory against Mitchell before falling to #2 Brandon Valley, 38-0.
Series Records: Since 2004, Brookings owns a 5-3 lead in the series of the two ESD schools. A year ago, Brookings took a 34-14 win. Pierre won both the 2010 (53-21) and 2009 (36-14) match ups, breaking a three-year Bobcats winning streak. Brookings won, 23-13, in 2008, 35-21 in 2007 and 7-0 in 2006. The Governors took a 39-23 decision in 2005, a year after (2004) Brookings won, 34-7.
Bottomline: Brookings started out strong this season, picking up wins in its first two games. They are a solid offensive unit that has played good defense. The Governors feature a balanced offense, directed by Gray and featuring the running of Svendsen and Wagner. At this point, Pierre appears to be the stronger team and the home field advantage helps.
Who Wins? We believe Pierre will win its third straight game with a tightly contested, 24-20 decision.
9AA #2 Kimball/White Lake (3-0) at 9AA #4 Gregory (3-0), Gregory, Friday, 7 p.m.
Kimball/White Lake Notes: The 9AA #2 WiLdKats, which advanced to the state title game a year ago, have opened the season with three impressive victories. Kimball/White Lake is one of the best 9-man teams in the state after recording wins over Mt Vernon, 38-14; Woonsocket/Wessington Springs/Sanborn Central, 44-16; and Miller, 39-6. The WiLdKats, which have every game by a minimum of 24 points, own a 121-to-36 overall scoring edge against opponents. The Kimball/White Lake offense is led by running back Trevor Reinesch and Jacob Hirsch, both who rushed for over 1,000 yards a year ago. In 2012, Reinesch has 32 carries for 413 yards and seven TDs with four scores of 30 yards or longer (30, 59, 61, 65). Kirsch has 33 carries for 244 yards and four TDs. Another key player has been quarterback Jesse Taylor, who has completed 15-of-20 passes for 255 yards and five passing TDs. He also has a 49-yard and 65 yard rushing TD. Reinesch has three games over 100 yards this season (13-135-2 TDs; 6-143-2 TDs and 13-135-3 TDs). Kirsch has two games of 95 yards.
Gregory Notes: As impressive as the WiLdKats have been in 2012, #4 Gregory has also opened some eyes. A year ago, Gregory was 3-6 and they already accumulated matched their wins total of a year ago. The Gorillas have outscored every opponent by at least 28 points, running up a 149-to-32 advantage. They are averaging nearly 50 points per game, producing 1,366 yards in total offense, led by quarterback Jaden Bartling, who has scored a combined 16 TDs in eight quarters this season. Bartling has 35 carries for 478 yards and nine TDs, including an 80-yard gallop against Avon. He has completed 24-of-34 passes for 436 yards and seven TDs. He also has consecutive games of rushing for over 200 yards (208, 209) and has totaled 1,008 all purpose yards this season. Also for Gregory, wide receiver Andrew Taggart has been a big play performer with nine receptions for 188 yards and four TDs while running back Jonah Beck has 16 carries for 156 yards and two TDs. The defense is led by linebackers, Brody Boes with 26 tackles and a sack while Beck has 21 tackles and 6 TFLs and Zach Sengelmann with 21 tackles. "Our team has been improving each week and from game to game. We will need to continue this into our game against Kimball/White Lake," said head coach Brian Allmendinger. "We have the luxury right now of being able to call on several players offensively to make plays for us but our QB Bartling is having an amazing season to this point. Defensively, we have been flying to the football and usually have at least two to three players in on every tackle. K/WL will pose a tremendous challenge for us. We will earn every yard we get on Friday. "
Inside slant: Will this be an offensive showdown between some of the most talented players in 9AA? Will Bartling be able to find holes in the WiLdKats defense? How will Gregory stop Reinesch and Kirsch? Who will have the better game Taylor or Bartling? Will a turnover create an opportunity that turns the game?
Coaches: Brian Allmendinger, 5th year, 19-20, .487. Dale Taylor, Kimball/White Lake, 140-76, .648.
Season Results: Kimball/White Lake has defeated Mt. Vernon, 38-14; Woonsocket/Wessington Springs/ Sanborn Central, 44-16; and Miller, 39-6. Gregory has wins over South Central, 49-12; Colome, 48-20 and Avon, 52-0.
Series Records: In Kimball/White Lake current coop, these two teams have met just once a year ago when the WiLdKats defeated the Gorillas, 46-12.
Bottomline: This should be a tightly contest game that will likely be decided in the second half. Both teams should generate points and it may be an early preview to what to expect in the 9AA playoffs. Reinesch, Kirsch and Taylor form a strong backfield for Kimball/White Lake, perhaps the best in 9AA. Bartling is a talented thrower and a deceptively quick and fast runner. He has a solid backfield mate in Beck and a standout receiver and big play receiver in Taggart. So, who wins? Good question.
Who Wins? This game will be decided in the fourth quarter as Kimball/White Lake holds off Gregory, 36-32. Don't miss it - it will be one of the best games in 9AA this season.
