Govs Are State Bound

The Pierre Govs football team is state bound. The Govs were able to punch their ticket to the Dakota Dome for Fridays 11AA State Championship game with a 35-14 victory Friday night against Yankton.

Just like the week before the Govs would start this one hot and on their first drive they would go two plays for a touchdown. The touchdown play was a 48 yard pass from Peyton Zabel to Gage Gehring to make it 7-0. On the Govs third drive of the game Michael Lusk would get a chance to run the ball and score from 38 yards out to make it 14-0. After a stop on defense the Govs would send Jack Maher in to play quarterback and he would punch it in from six yards out to make it 21-0. On the sixth drive on the game in the second quarter Zabel would find Garrett Stout over the middle from 22 yards out to make it 28-0. After an interception the Govs defense would again hold strong and Govs would get the ball back and Hudson Rohrbach would score from 54 yards out to make it 35-0.

Yankton then would try to mount a comeback in the second half as Rex Ryken was able to make an 11 yard touchdown catch to make it 35-7. Yankton again would make another stop on defense and get the ball back and they would strike again a 10 yard touchdown pass to Ryken to make it 35-14. The Govs defense like they have all year would hold strong at the end of the game to win it 35-14.

The Govs will play the Harrisburg Tigers for the state championship at 7 pm on Friday from the Dakota Dome.

Tickets will go on sale from the Athletic Office (Riggs High School) starting on Monday morning 10:00 AM and all tickets can be purchase until Thursday November 9th at 11:00 am. You can hear Friday’s state championship game on your voice of the Govs Today’s KCCR and
