Honkers ease past Tioga

By Jody Michael
The Tioga football team fell 40-6 to Kenmare-Burke County on Friday night in Kenmare.
Tioga (0-2, 0-1 Region 6) managed 188 yards in the contest, while Kenmare (1-1, 1-0) tallied 400 yards.
The Tioga defense stood tall on Kenmare’s first drive, as senior Carsen Canfield intercepted Honkers quarterback Hunter Rodin.
But Kenmare scored on each of its remaining six drives in the game, including two of 90-plus yards, as Rodin completed passes with ease and Jay Baumann added three scores on the ground.
A 13-yard Canfield run into the end zone with 14 seconds left in the half was nullified due to a holding penalty. Quarterback Austin Hove’s pass on the final play of the half fell incomplete, and the Honkers took a 34-0 lead into halftime.
Five Tioga drives ended in turnovers, three by interception and two by fumble.
Canfield accounted for the Pirates’ lone score late in the contest, running 56 yards to paydirt. The referees ended the game immediately after the run due to lightning in the vicinity.
Tioga hosts Trenton-Trinity Christian on Friday at 7 p.m.
