Dell Rapids opened pool play against the Redfield/Doland Pheasants.  The Pheasants defeated Dell Rapids by scores of 25-21, 27-25.  The Quarriers bounced back in the next two pool play matches.  They defeated Canton by scores of 25-13, 25-14, and then defeated Garretson by scores of 25-20, 25-13.  This put Dell Rapids into the 3rd place game against West Central.  Facing the Trojans for the second time in just a few days, West Central once again beat Dell Rapids, this time by scores of 25-14, 25-13, 25-21.

Hannah Welbig finished the tournament with 23 service points and 23 digs.  Mikaela Stofferahn had 16 kills, 18 service points, and five blocks.  Chloe Solberg tallied 23 service points and 46 set assists.  Trinity Gordon added 12 kills, eight service points, and 13 digs over the four matches.  Kiah Schumacher chipped in 28 service points, and Sydney Stofferahn had nine kills.

“These early season matches are good for the players and coaches as we evaluate our overall play.  We are doing a number of good things out on the floor.  However, our big weakness right now is our first pass to the net.  We have to get better with it.  This is the key to us playing well.  I feel we have some easy passing opportunities that aren’t getting to the spot where it needs to go.  It is early, and we will continue to work to get better.  We will get there,” said Head Coach Dale Solberg.

The Quarriers’ record now stands at 2-3 on the year.  Dell Rapids will travel to Elk Point-Jefferson on Tuesday, September 1st.

The Bulldogs forced an early turnover as Dylan Williams intercepted Hunter Hansen during the Quarriers’ first possession of the game.  Mitch Hanson scored the first touchdown for Madison after the interception to give them an early 7-0 lead.  The Bulldogs scored again in the first quarter.  Brodie Frederiksen found the endzone this time to put Madison ahead 14-0 after the first quarter.

Cardinal Football Starts Season with a Loss to Canistota

DRSMvsCAN_8-28-15_FB1In the season-opener for the Dell Rapids St Mary Cardinal football team, the Canistota Hawks ruined an otherwise perfect night for football on Friday, August 28th, at Rickeman Field in Dell Rapids.  In a rematch of last year’s quarterfinal playoff game, the Canistota Hawks once again defeated the Dell Rapids St Mary Cardinals, this time by a score of 36-0.

The Hawks got on the scoreboard early.  After taking the opening kickoff, Canistota scored with 10:06 left in the first quarter on a five-yard touchdown run by Jerad Nielsen to go ahead 6-0.  St Mary was forced into a three-and-out in their first possession, giving the ball right back to Canistota.  The Hawks had possession of the ball for almost the entire first quarter, but the St Mary defense held tough, allowing just the one touchdown in the first quarter.

Canistota was able to break through the Cardinal defense again in the second quarter with 8:31 to go when Nielsen again found the endzone, this time on an 18-yard run.  The two-point conversion was successful, and the Hawks went ahead 14-0.  Canistota had the ball again late in the second quarter and drove deep into Cardinal territory near halftime.  With just seconds remaining, Shay Jolley took the snap, handed the ball off to Jalen Kaufman, and Kaufman scored as time expired in the half to give Canistota a 20-0 lead at halftime. DRSMvsCAN_8-28-15_FB2

The St Mary Cardinals took the kickoff to begin the third quarter and looked to be building momentum as they drove deep into Hawk territory.  Josh Brown appeared to score on a 10-yard run, but the play was called back due to a holding penalty.  The penalty appeared to steal all momentum away from St Mary.  The Cardinals were unable to score, and the ball went back to Canistota on downs.  After each team traded interceptions, the Hawks scored again with 5:59 to go in the third quarter on a 29-yard touchdown pass from Jolley to Drew Seubert.   Jolley and Seubert connected again in the fourth quarter with 10:17 to go for the final score, this time on a 32-yard touchdown pass.

St Mary finished with a total of 118 yards of offense, while Canistota racked up 317 yards of offense.  Brown finished with 11 carries for 38 yards.  Garret Frost was 4-6 passing for 51 yards.  G. Frost also had a catch for 10 yards.  Jacob Glazier had two catches for 23 yards, and Casey Hansen had a catch for 20 yards.  Christian Schnieders led the defense with 10.5 tackles.  Dalton Houska had 9.5 tackles, a half sack, and a fumble recovery.  Jacob Frost finished with eight tackles and a half sack.  G. Frost tallied seven tackles and a half sack.

The loss drops the Cardinals to 0-1 on the season.  They will host Oldham-Ramona/Rutland on Friday, September 4th.  The game can be seen again on Big Sioux Media.
