Bridgeport 53
Bayard 6

The Bridgeport Bulldogs walloped the host Bayard Tigers, 53-6, in Friday’s conference game.

Bridgeport improved to 5-3 on the season, while Bayard, with only two wins this season, picks up its sixth loss. The Tigers are on the road tomorrow and look to bounce back against St. Patrick’s Irish (North Platte) in the C2 District 8 game. The Irish have lost only once out of eight games this season. Last week, St. Patrick’s trounced Cambridge, 62-8.

Against Bridgeport, Bayard managed just two first downs on 37 plays. Senior QB Jacob Hoff shared duties with freshman Tanner Rafferty. Both were overwhelmed by defense throwing two interceptions a piece. Hoff connected with junior receiver Joe Ferraro for Tigers’ lone score. Overall, Ferraro had three receptions for 117 yards.

On defense, Ferraro and Conrad Kildow each had five solo tackles, while Ethan Marker had four on the night.

The Bulldogs next travel to take on the Kimball Longhorns (1-7) in another C2 District 8. Kimball lost to Hershey, 54-7, last week.

Morrill 8
Sutherland 44

The Morrill Lions suffered defeat to the Sutherland Sailors at home last Friday, 44-8, in 8-man football.

For their final game of the regular season, the Lions take on Perkins County tomorrow in Grant in another D1 District 10 game. Morrill will try to improve on its 3-4 record. The Plainsmen (7-0) put their unblemished record on the line, after crushing Dundy County-Stratton (Benkelman), 66-28, last week.

Morrill (1-3, districts) is near the bottom of the current conference standings just above winless Creek Valley.

Minatare won by forfeit over the Sioux County Warriors last week in 6-man football.

The Indians hit the road to take on the Hyannis Longhorns (5-2) tomorrow in their 6-Man West matchup. The Longhorns triumphed over Arthur County, 61-58, last week.

If the Warriors can manage to suit up a full team, they’ll collect their third win by forfeit against Banner County tomorrow. The Wildcats ended their football program after their first game due to injuries.

Mitchell (Bye Week)

The Mitchell Tigers play at Chase County tomorrow.
Last week, the Longhorns edged the Ogallala Indians, 16-14.
In C1 District 8 standings, Mitchell (5-2, 2-0 districts) remains in second behind the Indians. Chase County (6-1, 1-1 districts) suffered the only loss this season to district foe the Chadron Cardinals, who the Tigers beat, 27-15, on Oct. 2. Meanwhile, the Indians take on Gordon-Rushville in a non-conference matchup.
