Jake’s take on sports

An offensive fireworks show

As we go this week, memories are still very clear from Langdon-Munich’s 54-39 win in the first round of the North Dakota Class A 11 Man Football Playoffs.

The game was about as entertaining as it gets for fans that were on hand for the game or tuned in on 95-7 The Rock Farm with myself and “The Principal” Randy Hill.  You can find a complete story for the game in this weeks paper, but it needs to given it’s due here as well. There were 14 total touchdowns scored in the game, seven in the second quarter alone.  And of those seven second frame TDs, four of them were scored in the last three minutes.  The stats at the end of contest were video gamelike, with Langdon-Munich quarterback Jacob Delvo throwing for 498 yards and six touchdowns.  Anfernee Economy had 13 catches for 218 yards and three scores, and he also threw a touchdown pass.  Chase Peebles had 182 yards of total offense. The Cardinals pulled out every trick in the book — a wide receiver option pass, and hook and ladder, a flea flicker and more.  The crazy thing about all of this is that all of players that were mentioned are just juniors, which means the future is so bright, we have to wear shades.  Congratulations to Coach Krivarchka and the whole program on a thrilling win, and here’s to getting more W’s as the playoffs continue, beginning with a game at Northern Cass in the playoff quarterfinals on Oct. 29.

The volleyball showdown everyone has been waiting for is finally here

The Langdon-Edmore-Munich volleyball team had a very successful Senior Night on Oct. 25 in a match with Rolette-Wolford.  Senior players Madi Hart, Sydney Ellingson, Ally Welsh and Tara Hiller, and senior statistician Jayden Romfo were all recognized along with their parents before the match.  The Lady Cards tore through their match with the Comets, in their last time playing at home this season.  The Cardinals and their fans are now looking forward to a showdown with the North Star Bearcats, a match that will be played in Cando on Halloween Night, Oct. 31.  It should be a fantastic match, as Langdon-Edmore-Munich was 36-1 at press time, while the Bearcats were 30-1.  The two teams have not met this year, but now have the potential of seeing each other twice in a little over two weeks, with the Halloween match, then a very possible meeting in the Region 4 Tournament, which will be held Nov. 7-10 in Devils Lake. Oh, and by the way, don’t show up at the match in Cando in a clown costume, as they are being banned due to all of this nonsense with evil clown sightings across the nation and even in our area.  You can hear the match on 95-7 The Rock Farm.

Highway 5 Pool League ready to start their season

We will leave you this week by reminding pool players that the Highway 5 Pool League, is good to go to begin another season on Nov. 3. They will then run the league on Thursdays through sometime in March.  There are 22 four person teams in the league this year, with most coming from Langdon but also teams from Nekoma and Osnabrock. Full schedules are available at every bar and lounge that is hosting teams.  We wish best of luck to everyone involved.

Deer Hunting season ready to open

Nov. 4 is a big day for the outdoors men and women in North Dakota.  That is opening day for North Dakota Deer Gun Hunting Season. For the chosen few who have a license, this is an awesome time of year.  From what I have heard, there will be plenty of people available to scout deer, as in some annual hunting parties there are only one and maybe two that have tags.  For those that don’t hunt, the Langdon Eagles Auxillary will hold their 3rd Annual Deer Hunters Widow Glow 5K Walk/Run the evening of Nov. 5.  This is open to all ages, and for more information, please contact the Langdon Eagles Club at 701-256-3300.

Happy Halloween!  “See ya!” next week!
