Tioga football players Tyler Larson, Cole Marmon and Jaryn Rasmussen were among the selections to represent the state in the 13th annual SasKota Bowl, the North Dakota vs. Saskatchewan nine-man football all-star game, which took place July 3 in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan.
Team Saskatchewan won 43-6 for its fourth victory in the past five years. North Dakota leads the overall series, 8-5.
The game was not a blowout until late. Saskatchewan led 14-6 at halftime and 22-6 after three quarters before adding three touchdowns in the fourth.
In addition to the Tioga all-stars, Atati Mita of Ray was a selection to the West nine-man team for the North Dakota Shrine Bowl, which took place Sunday in Fargo. The West scored a touchdown on a 12-play, 91-yard drive late in the fourth quarter to win 20-14.
