SENTINEL TRIBUNE SPORTS I I I II Wednesday, October 26, 2011 Page 9 I I Chargers shutout by HBC Patriots DNR QUESTION OF * For the second year in a row the Patriots had their way with the Chargers in a 44-0 win By Tom Merchant Sentinel Tribune two point conversion the Pats took the lead at 8-0. On the kickoff Jake Comnick had a nice return of about 28 yards just before the end of the quarter. At the start of the second quarter the Chargers contin- ued to drive into Pats territo- ry. It looked as if the Pats had the Chargers in a punting sit- uation, the Chargers faked the punt and got a first down. But then the Pats forced the ball over on downs and 4 plays later the Pats scored the first of three touchdowns in the second quarter. Just before the half the Charger defense stiffened and after a sack by Aaron Hass the Pats found themselves pinned inside their own 20. The ensuing punt left the Chargers in great field posi- tion inside the Pats 45 yard line. Unfortunately the Pats intercepted a Charger pass and ran out the clock taking a commanding 32-0 lead. In the third quarter the Pats tacked on a couple more TD's to boost the score to 44-0 at the end of the third quartet. In the fourth quarter nei- ther team was able to score and the game ended with Hills Beaver Creek winning 44-0. Passing: Jake Comnick we 11 of 15 for 55yards; Nick Lehnhoff was 6 of 13 for 31 yards and an interception. Rushing: Comnick 17 attempts for 48 yards; Matt Otto had 2 carries for 11 yards. Receiving: Dana Madson had 6 catches for 33 yards; WWG -- It was a cool crisp fall evening, perfect for football, however for the Chargers it was a struggle most of the game. Dalton Bass was the big story for the Patriots, he rushed for 215 yards and score three touch- downs against the Chargers. In the first quarter the Chargers played good enough on defense to hold the Pats to a touchdown near the end of the quarter. With the good Charger Aaron Hass dropped the Patriots quarterback deep in their own territory forcing a Patriot punt.

Invasive plants can choke out native plants and reduce wildlife habi- tat. The eggs and larvae of invasive insects like emer- ald ash borer can be spread by moving firewood. Emerald ash borer kills ash trees. By taking a few simple steps, you can prevent the spread and help keep your favorite recreation areas healthy: *Clean your outdoor gear before recreating and before leaving the recre- ation site. *Remove seeds and mud from clothes, boots, gear, pets, and vehicles. *Burn local or certified firewood. *Use local or certified weed-free hay. *Stay on trails.

OFFICIAL ENTRY FORM Well I guess I made it a little tougher this week as the high score was only 14 right, but we had six people tied for first. Our winner was Daniel Schneider who was closest on the tie breaker. After this week Kristie Butler is still a leader, but Jacob Jenniges and Isaac Wahl also are co-leaders with 86 points. If the Gophers ever get a handle on the funda- mentals of the game I think they have enough talent to win. The Vike's great quarterback experiment went quite well, I thought Ponder showed he has potential to be a good quarterback. Time will tell, but I think the switch was good and the way they played the Pack il;howed there is parity in the league.
