Tioga dominates Parshall, 44-18

By Jody Michael
Tioga’s offense dominated from the outset as the host Pirates scored five times in the first half alone, routing Parshall-White Shield, 44-18, on Friday in Region 6 play.
Running back Devon Wilharm had three second-quarter touchdowns for Tioga (5-3, 5-2 Region 6), which put up 31 first-half points against the Braves (2-6, 1-6 Region 6). One was a 22-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Cole Marmon on the final play of the first half.
“Overall, we played well,” Tioga head coach Tim Schaffer said. “There are a few things we need to fix still this week.”
The Pirates first took the lead with Carsen Canfield scoring on an 8-yard run, and then settled for a Wilharm field goal before his three touchdowns made the score 31-12 at the halftime intermission.
One of their second-half touchdowns was a 51-yard run by Canfield that extended the lead to 37-12, the other a 1-yard run from Tyler Larson that made it 44-12.
The Pirates earned a No. 4 seed in the North Dakota high school football playoffs.
“At 5-3 and a three-way tie for second place, I was really happy with the way the regular season turned out,” Schaffer said.
Tioga will match up with No. 3-seeded New Salem-Glen Ullin Holsteins in the first round at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday in New Salem. The winner faces North Prairie on Oct. 24.
“New Salem is physical -- that’s the big thing,” Schaffer said. “That’s something we need to work on, because some teams were able to run on us this year, and if we can’t stop their running game, we’re in trouble.”
Just like the Pirates, the Holsteins enter the game with five wins and three losses. New Salem-Glen Ullin has scored 88 more points than they’ve allowed this season (274-186), compared to 78 for Tioga (220-142).
