Zach Taylor scored four times and Daniel Tungseth tossed three TD passes last Friday as the Hillcrest Comets hammered Verndale's Pirates 55-6. Taylor scored on runs of four and 15 yards and caught TD passes of 25 and 32 yards from Tungseth, who also hit Grant Stroud with a 25-yard touchdown pass.
Two fourth-quarter touchdowns lifted the West Central Area Knights over the Wadena-Deer Creek Wolverines 12-0 last Friday in Barrett. Squaring off for the first time since last October when the Wolverines defeated the Knights 12-6 to snap a 23-game losing streak, the two Heart O' Lakes Classic rivals both had a hard time moving the ball on a muddy field.

Wadena-Deer Creek superintendent Virginia Dahlstrom admitted Tuesday that Monday's meeting with the architectural firm of Perkins+Will resulted in some confusion about what District 2155 can finance. Perkins+Will asked for a meeting with the public in order to ask for ideas about what they would like to see in a new school. The district's senior high and middle school building was devastated by a June 17 tornado and a new building will have to be erected.
The period between mid-August and mid-September was an expensive one for District 2155. District administration has settled the bulk of the bills that resulted from the June 17 tornado in that time and a seven-figure number emerged. Business manager Jerry Anderson noted at Monday night's September board meeting that $1,047.937.28 worth of bills, attributed to the school's tornado account, had been paid. Anderson said that the school spends around $200,000 in a normal month.

Megan Richter had five solo blocks. Henning 25-25-25, Verndale 13-9-19 Teresa Moenkedick had a strong defensive game with 15 digs Sept. 16 but Henning prevailed 3-0 on Verndale's home court. Kayla Graba and Ashley Richter combined for 13 digs.

A lot of fans are worried about the Minnesota Vikings after their less-than-stellar start. There is a poll out that asks fans which NFL team's start has surprised them the most. Leading the pack is our Vikings. Do you suppose last year's Vikings were abducted by aliens? The pieces do not always fall neatly into place. The whole NFL season is off to a weird start. The Vikings and the Cowboys are 0-2. Teams like Houston, Tampa Bay, Miami, Chicago and Kansas City are 2-0.
