Passing isn't really the forte for every 9-man football team. But for Mott-Regent, the passing attack is lethal. Chad Mosbrucker entered the season with team records within his grasp and the 6-foot-3, 181-pound senior receiver managed to set them all and help send his team to playoffs. However, Mosbrucker knows his efforts wouldn't have been achieved if not for a strong supporting cast, including quarterback McCahen Schweitzer. At 5-10, 140 pounds, the senior offensive field general doesn't look like the prototypical record-breaking quarterback.

"Century ran the ball," Dickinson head coach Dennis Morris said.

Most of them cut times." The Coyotes posted 456 points, edging Minot's 431.
NEW SALEM -- A home playoff game was on the line Friday night, and Heart River made sure it hung around long enough to get it. Thanks to a pair of third-quarter touchdown runs by Seth Ewoniuk and some big defensive stops throughout the second half, the Cougars edged New Salem-Almont-Glen Ullin 25-20 in Class 1A, Region 4 game on Friday.

The two meet Friday at 6 p.m. in New Salem to fight for Region 4's No. 2 seed in the Class 1A playoffs and a home playoff game.

Dickinson High learned not to overlook any team in the West Region, no matter who is on the court. For the second time this season, the Midgets' volleyball team dropped straight sets to Bismarck Century, 25-23, 28-26, 25-21 on Tuesday at the DHS gymnasium. "We had way too many opportunities to win both the first and second sets," Dickinson head coach Jay Schobinger said. "Century stormed back and we gave them away. I think we maybe overlooked this group because they are without their returning all-state player. We got outplayed." A.J.

So, Knight talked with Dickinson head coach Bruce Heppner about bringing a three-day camp to Dickinson.
