Football season for four county-area teams came to an end last week.
On Friday, Bayard’s season came to an end with a 42-7 loss at home to undefeated North Platte St. Patrick’s. The Tigers’ year finished at 2-7, while the Irish improved to 9-0 and moved into the Class C2 playoffs this week.

Bayard held St. Pat’s to 290 offensive yards, but the Tigers mustered only 127 yards.

Junior Jacob Hoff completed 8 of 18 passes for 83 yards with one interception. Senior Tristan Hunter caught four passes for 40 yards and led Bayard in rushing with 63 yards and one touchdown on seven carries.

Defensively, senior Bryce Hargens and junior Zaine Gallegos had 10 tackles apiece, with each making four solo stops. Junior Conrad Kildow and sophomore Joe Ferrero also had four solo tackles each, with Kildow making eight total tackles and Ferrero getting seven total stops.

Banner County’s first official season in six-man came to a close with a 68-25 loss to undefeated Sioux County at Harrison.

Senior Mike McKown completed 11 of 16 passes for 158 yards and two touchdown passes for Banner County (2-6), which trailed (Sioux County (8-0) at halftime, 62-6.

The Wildcats were hurt by five lost fumbles and Warriors senior Nathan Woodrum, who rushed for 268 yards and four TDs on five rushes and completed three passes for 122 yards and two more TDs.

McKown also had nine rushes for 90 yards and senior Tyson Dahlgrin rushed for 73 yards on eight carries and a pair of touchdowns for the Wildcats.

Banner County had three receivers with three catches apiece: senior Bryce Olsen gained 61 yards, senior Kaden Huber had 53 yards and Dahlgrin gained 25 yards through the air.
Defensively, Dahlgrin and Huber had four solo tackles apiece, and Dahlgrin had nine total stops – including one for lost yardage – and Huber had eight total tackles.

Mitchell was looking to avoid a second straight winless season, but the Tigers were denied by Chase County (5-3) with a 68-12 defeat at home in District C1-8 action. Mitchell thus finished the year at 0-8.
Morrill finished the season at 1-7 after taking a 48-28 setback Thursday to Perkins County (4-4) in District D1-10 action at Morrill.
