Bowman 45 (2-0), Wolf Point 0

The Bulldogs travelled across state lines for this one, making the trip to Montana to take on Wold Point in a non-region contest. Bowman County continued their winning ways by taking down the Wolves in convincing fashion. It was their largest margin of victory since their defeat of Richardton-Taylor-Hebron last year 46-0. The Bulldogs have now won the opening two games of their season in four of the last five years.

Kidder County 6 (1-1), Beach 0 (0-2)

The Buccaneers are still searching for their first points of the season after being shut out for the second week in a row. It’s the first time since 2004 they have been held scoreless in two consecutive games. The 9-man state semifinalists from a year ago will have their work cut out for them as they will play their first home game next week against Grant County.


Des Lacs-Burlington 32 (2-0), Killdeer 26 (0-2) OT

A tough night for Killdeer drops the Cowboys to 0-2 on the season, the first time they’ve started a season with multiple losses since 2000. One thing Killdeer can look to build on is the passing game, which was almost non-existent against Bowman County last week. Quarterback Gus Bohmbach threw for 179 yards and touchdown, often looking to wide receiver Dawson Schneider, who had 112 yards receiving and a touchdown. Running backs Calvin Dobitz and Colby Asay both chipped in a touchdown on the ground.

Napoleon 58 (2-0), Richardton-Taylor-Hebron 14 (0-2)

The Raiders are still adjusting to life back in 9-man football as they allowed another opponent to score 40-plus points on them. They’ve allowed 104 points in their first two games this season. They may be able to get back on track next week as they play host to another struggling side, Mott-Regent/New England, who are 0-2 as well.

South Border 48 (2-0), Mott-Regent/New England 0 (0-2)

After going 1-6 a season ago, South Border are out to a quick start this season and defeated the Wildfire with ease. It was the first time Mott-Regent/New England have been held scoreless since 2018 and just the fourth time this century. They’ve now lost six games in a row dating back to last season.
