HS FBall: Beulah draws Region 3 champ Bishop Ryan in first round playoff matchup

Sports

Beulah football may have lost its last two games of the regular season, but the team could be peaking at the right time.

Their last loss at Bowman County was just a one-score margin. The team says the loss was the strongest performance they’ve had to this point.

“That makes us feel really powerful, and that gives us a little extra courage, and we need that as a team,” said senior defensive back John Brown III.

The Miners have drawn Region 3 champion Bishop Ryan in the first round this Saturday. On offense, the Lions are no stranger to putting up high numbers, and they have a knack for making big plays. Head coach Jim Dooley says his Beulah defense has to limit those big plays and control possession on offense.

“I don’t want it to get to a point where we have a long drive, and then they have a two-play drive for a score,” Beulah head coach Jim Dooley said. “I think a lot of things is just being sound with what we’re doing, and just make the plays we’re capable of making.”

Kickoff at Herb Parker Stadium is set for 7 p.m.
