The Divide County football team fell to Kenmare-Burke County, 46-6, Friday evening at Kenmare.
“Defensively we really showed our youth,” defensive coach Nate Nelson said. “We had a hard time breaking down and making tackles in space. We would have a good play here and there but were unable to put three good plays in a row and get off the field.”
Aidan Eriksmoen led the defense with seven tackles, two for a loss, and an interception.
Eriksmoen and Taylor Landsverk led the offense with 101- and 92-yard rushing performances, respectively. Eriksmoen also handled quarterback duties in replacement of the injured Trent Bossingham, managing just one completion.
“We had a tough week of practice trying to shuffle people around to fill in for three missing starters,” offensive coach Bob Brown said. “The players gave it their best.”
A 70-yard touchdown run from Landsverk was the Maroons’ only score.
Honkers quarterback Kyler Melby scored touchdowns on their first five drives (four passing, one rushing).
Divide County plays host to Parshall on Friday at 7 p.m.
