HS Football: Holsteins beat Wolves to open season


New Salem-Almont/Glen Ullin is starting their 2017 season 1-0.

The Holsteins overcame a 14-8 halftime deficit to beat the Kidder County Wolves 22-14.

Neither team scored until the second quarter, but Kidder County would open the scoring thanks to a Justin Six quarterback keeper. His rushing touchdown made it 6-0, but the Wolves were turned away in their two-point conversion attempt.

Minutes later, Evan Henke of the Holsteins threw a screen pass to Garret Soupir, and Soupir would sidesteo would-be tacklers all the way to the end zone for a 60-yard score. Henke would use a quarterback draw for an extra two points to give the Holsteins an 8-6 lead.

With five seconds left before halftime, Parker Hager of the Wolves took the handoff near the 40 and sprinted down the sideline into the end zone. Kidder County converted on a two-point attempt to take a 14-8 lead into halftime.

But the state runner ups came out with a second half charge, scoring 14 unanswered points and defeating the Wolves 22-14.

The Holsteins next play Mott-Regent next Friday at 7 p.m.
