Governors Advance To Semi-Finals

Friday, October 31, 2014

The Pierre Governor football team is on to the next round of the Class 11AA playoffs after their dominating 50-28 display over Douglas on Thursday evening.  Pierre did receive a scare from the Patriots in the first half. After the Governors quickly erupted to a 13-0 lead but some defensive miscues & penalties allowed Douglas to inch their way back & only trailed Pierre at the half by a score of 26-21.

After the intermission, the Governors found a rhythm in their rushing game as Luke Snyder & Brevin Kaiser both scored on the ground. Forced to play defense Thursday night due to several injuries, Kaiser intercepted a pass & returned the play 69 yards for another score which locked the victory for Pierre. Kaiser was one of many to lead the Governors to a victory on Thursday night as he finished the night 19-34 with 298 yards passing & four touchdowns plus a rushing score. Nick Gusso tallied 154 yards receiving while Erin Severyn recorded 115. Luke Snyder led the Governors with 110 yards rushing.  

Pierre’s season is extended for another week as they advance to the semi-final round of Class 11AA football. The Governors will travel to the eastern part of the state on Friday November 7th for a tilt against Brookings. Time & location is still yet to be determined.

Dakota Marker Game

Friday, October 31, 2014

Gov. Dennis Daugaard and North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple have staked a friendly wager on the outcome of this weekend’s Dakota Marker football game between South Dakota State University and North Dakota State University.

Dalrymple and Daugaard wagered a $125 charitable donation based on the game’s outcome. Dalrymple agreed to donate $125 to Daugaard’s charity of choice, South Dakota Cribs for Kids, if the South Dakota State Jackrabbits win Saturday’s football game.

Daugaard said he will donate $125 to Dalrymple’s chosen charity, Habitat for Humanity – Northern Lights Chapter, should the Bison of North Dakota State win the cross-border rivalry. The governors agreed on the wager amount in recognition of North Dakota’s and South Dakota’s 125th anniversary of statehood, which is the day after the game. The annual Dakota Marker rivalry game will be played at 2:30 p.m. CDT on Saturday at the Fargo Dome in North Dakota. The game can be listened to on KCCR beginning at 1:30PM on Saturday afternoon.

*** Trick-or-treat during daylight hours or take a flashlight if going out after dark.

*** Add reflective tape to costumes and trick-or-treat bags

*** Make sure vision is clear when wearing masks or other head garb

*** Adults should accompany young children; unaccompanied children should trick-or-treat in groups
