Indians Kick Their Way Past Malta

The Poplar Indian football team traveled to Malta, Monday, Sept. 15 for a football game.
It was a hard fought game between the two teams. The Indians suffered some injuries during the game and some of the younger players had to fill in, but they did a very good job during the game.
The Mustangs scored first on a long pass play, which was almost pick off by Myltin Bighorn, in the first quarter to go up 6-0. The teams went back and forth for the next two quarters until the Indians mounted a drive in the fourth quarter.
The Indians moved the ball all the way to the four yard line before Layne Gorder ran it in for the score to knot the game at 6-6. The quarter finished before either team could score again, so it had to be decided in overtime.
The Mustangs got the ball first and with great team defense the Indians were able to keep them out of the end zone.  
Poplar got their chance next and ran the ball three times, but failed to get into the end zone.
After a timeout, the Indians decided to have Bighorn kick a field goal, which went right through the middle of the uprights, to give the Indians the win with the score of 9-6.

Cocked and loaded with returning players for the next game with Forsyth (2-0), Friday, Sept. 19, the Wolves will have two starters back who were injured during the loss at Baker, Friday, Sept. 5, and the services of three players coming off a temporary suspension due to end of the last school year grades.
The Wolves are 2-1 in overall play and unbeaten at home with the 32-4 win over Lodge Grass, Friday, Sept. 12. One of the wins was over conference competitor Plentywood in the zero week game that does not count as a conference contest. The Wolves play Plentywood, Friday, Oct. 24.
“We’re 2-1 overall. The only thing that zero week [first game played against Plentywood, Friday, Aug. 29] doesn’t count for is the wild card in the playoffs,” head coach Bruce Knerr said. “There are two Class B wildcard slots for the playoffs.”
The Wolves will have their hands full with Southern 3B Forsyth. So far this season, no points have been scored against the Dogies. Forsyth beat Plentywood 43-0, Friday, Sept. 14, and Red Lodge 41-0 one week earlier.
“I heard that Forsyth is ranked No. 1 in the state right now by an unofficial poll,” Knerr said.
Reloaded with players who were walking wounded on the sidelines during the Lodge Grass game, quarterback Dalton Hafner and running back Wesley Weeks [both injured at Baker] are sure to be back for the Forsyth game.
“They control the ball and I see that they ran against Red Lodge,” Knerr said.
“Forsyth is very susceptible on the outside. They like to get physical and play inside,” he said. “We’re going to have to adjust and be a little bit more physical than them.”
In the Lodge Grass game, sophomore quarterback Brady Babb came off the bench to fill in for the injured Hafner and produced a winning running game.
Against Lodge Grass, running back David Knerr lit up the scoreboard first with a touchdown on a 5-yard run with 3:48 elapsed on the clock. Babb scored a 2-point conversion, giving the Wolves an 8-0 advantage. The Indians answered just once with a 3-yard run by Zane Horn. An attempted conversion failed.
The second stanza was scoreless and the 8-6 Wolf Point lead stood until after the intermission, when receiver Tyson Bridges returned the second-half opening kickoff 85 yards for a touchdown. The kick was wide and the Wolves started the third quarter leading 14-6.
Wolf Point scored three more times with a fumble recovery and 68-yard run by defensive lineman Kenny Boos in the third quarter and a pair of fourth quarter rushing plays by Knerr for 5 yards and a 1-yard scramble by running back Logan Nefzger.
David Knerr led the Wolves’ ground attack with 19 carries for 123 yards and two touchdowns. Bridges caught four passes for 68 yards and returned the second-half kick-off 85 yards for a touchdown. Sophomore Boos returned a fumble 68 yards for a touchdown. Senior Josh Nieskens led the Wolves’ defense with 13 tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery.
The next day, Wolf Point’s junior varsity lost 18-8 to the Poplar Indians.
The Wolves lost sophomore lineman Dillon Wetsit for the season with a knee injury at Poplar.
“[Poplar] scored all their points in the first half and we shut them out in the second half,” Knerr said.
After the Forsyth game, the Wolves will take the show on the road for two games at Roundup (0-2), Friday, Sept. 26, and Harlem (2-1), Friday, Oct. 3.
