NEW SALEM - Falling by five points to Shiloh Christian with a trip to the Dakota Bowl at stake last season, the New Salem-Almont-Glen Ullin football team exacted a measure of payback on Saturday, Oct. 27, crushing the Skyhawks 50-14 during the 9-Man State Quarterfinals from Gaebe Field.
For the third straight season, the Holsteins will host a state semifinal when they welcome Region 6 No. 1 seed Ray-Powers Lake next Saturday.
Highlighted by a 70-yard touchdown run by senior running back Braden Zuroff just 21 seconds into the game, the Holsteins held a 16-6 advantage after the first 12 minutes of action and put the game away with a 22-point second quarter.
Shiloh Christian senior running back Canaan Fagerland fumbled the ball at the Skyhawks’ 4-yard line, which was recovered and return by Holsteins senior linebacker Tayt Wolding for the score.
Later in the frame, New Salem-Almont-Glen Ullin extends its advantage with a 5-yard run from senior quarterback Evan Henke and a 16-yard reception from senior running back Chauncey Dittus.
The Holsteins built as much as a 44-point lead in the fourth following a Dittus 19-yard rushing touchdown.
