MLS improves to 5-3 in Region 3 play with 28 to 22 win over Dunseith

Pictured above: Statler Olson, #10, quarterback for MLS carries the ball in the Mavericks’ Region 3 game against Dunseith. Blocking for the Mavericks are #18 Mason Nehring and #98 Berkley Santos.

The MLS Mavericks were back on their own home turf on Saturday afternoon, October 11th when they hosted the Dunseith Dragons for a Region 3 nine-man contest. Kickoff was at 2:00 p.m., with the Dragons kicking off to the Mavericks. That kickoff turned in to a touchdown for the Mavericks, as Tanner Driscoll returned the pigskin the distance for the 75 yard touchdown run. Trevor Evanger added the two points for the Mavericks as he carried the ball in for the conversion. With 11:47 on the first quarter clock, MLS lead 8 to 0. The Mavericks would gain possession again, as Cole Feland attempted the on-side kick, with teammate Talon Thompson coming up with the ball. The Mavericks were then forced to punt the ball, but Jesse Mott pulled the fake and ran with the ball, but came up short of the first down, giving the Dragons possession. Dunseith was able to score on that set of downs, as quarterback Corey Poitra found Brendon Nerpel down field for a 27 yard touchdown pass with 6:21 to go in the quarter. Trace Azure then connected with Nerpel for the 2 point conversion to tie the game up at 8 to 8. At the end of one quarter of play it was still an 8 to 8 game.

Pictured above: #1 Connor Brackenbury returns a kickoff from the Dragons with #81 Jesse Mott defending a Dragon player. Also back for the Mavericks was #2 Cole Southam.

MLS would outscore the Dragons 14 to 8 in the second quarter to take a 22 to 16 lead heading into the half. The Mavericks scored the first touchdown just seconds into the second quarter when Statler Olson connected with Talon Thompson for an 11 yard touchdown pass. Olson and Thompson would connect again for the 2 point conversion, putting MLS up 16 to 8. Then midway through the quarter, Corey Poitra called his own number for a 2 yard Dragon touchdown, and Azure found Nerpel in the end zone for the 2 point conversion. It was now a 16 to 16 game. With about a minute and a half to go, Jesse Mott broke loose for a 52 yard run to give the Mavericks back the lead (run failed), up 22 to 16.

Both teams managed to score a touchdown in the third quarter, allowing MLS to maintain their lead, now up 28 to 22. MLS scored the first touchdown in the third period at the 9:57 mark, when Statler Olson punched the ball into the end zone from 1 yard out (pass failed). Then just a little over two minutes later (7:29 on the clock), Dunseith scored their touchdown on a 14 yard pass from Azure to Skye Davis (pass failed).

Neither team would score in the final quarter, allowing the Mavericks to hold on for the 28 to 22 win, improving their Region 3 record to 5 ... (See this article and many more interesting articles in this week's issue of the Renville County Farmer.)
