SIDNEY HERALD SPORTS SUNDAY, OCT. 6, 2013 | g Sidney boys take stat golf title Ahead of the pack by six strokes, the Sidney boys took home the main hard- ware after winning the golf state title on Saturday in the Class A state meet held in Polson. Eagle golfers shot an overall 639 after two days of state play. The Sidney boys program hasn't taken home the team state title in Class A golf since 1994. "Individual things are big, but there's so much more involved in winning as a team," Sidney head coach Jay Frank said. "Once we knew the other teams weren't playing great, we knew we had a shot." Finishing in the top 10 and earning All-State honors, Paul Brannan, Bobby Frank and Connor Frank led the boys team to championship finish. Brannan finished fourth after he shot an over- all 153. B. Frank finished seventh with an overall 155 while C. Frank finished ninth with a 158. There will be a police escort Sunday (today) at the four-way intersection south of Sidney as the Eagles return home at around 3-4 p.m. Full results from the State A tournament included: 1, Wagner Jackson, Anaconda, 146, 2, Art Doom, Whitefish, 147, 3, Dylan Meccage, Laurel, 150, 4, Paul Brannan, Sidney, 153, 5, Cooper Donahue, Whitefish, 154, 6, Caleb Stetzner, Anaconda, 154, 7, Bobby Frank, Sidney, 155, 8, Jake DuFresne, Laurel, 156, 9, Alex Killian, Poison, 158, 9, Connor Frank, Sidney, 158, 11, Josh Heath, Hamilton, 159, 11, Gavin McPherson, Glendive, 159, 13, Tyler Ferguson, Belgrade, 160, 14, Cam Caraveau, Billings Central, 162, 14, Troy Wolff, Frenchtown, 162 Sidney boys other: Luke Beenken, 173, Tristan Pairs, 199 Girls team scores: 1, Poison, 715, 2, Whitefish, 721, 3, Anaconda, 814, 4, Havre, 816, 5, Livingston, 826, 6, Laurel, 847, 7, Dillon, 890, 8, Billings Central, 941 Boys team scores: 1, Sidney, 639, 2, Whitefish, 645, 3, Anaconda, 666, 4, Billings Cen- tral, 672, 5, Lewistown, 683, 6, Hamilton, 689, 7, Belgrade, 716, 8, Libby, 751 Sidney girls: Nicole Moore, 226, Kennedi Shee- Top 15 boys: han: ' 244 r Top 15 girls: 1, Erin Tabish, Whitefish, 165, 2, Jaylin Kenney, Poison, 171,3, Nicole Clairmont, Poison, 175, 4, Christal Tokash, Livingston, 176, 5, Morgan O'Neil, Laurel, 178, 6, Katie Fyall, Whitefish, 179, 7, Peyton Anderson, Poison, 185, 8, Dorby McNally, Frenchtown, 185, 9, Lauren Dupuis, Poison, 187, 10, Simone Craft, Whitefish, 188, 11, Madi Tucker, Laurel, 190, 12, Sydni Rose, Hamilton, 194, 13, Emily Morley, Anaconda, 195, 14, Taylor Nelson, Dillon, 196, 14, Nikki Gabrielsen, Havre, 196 Rams down Eagles, 37-10 BY SARAH BLOOM SIDNEY HERALD Sidney's defense was stout and strong at the line of scrimmage, but Holden Ryan and the Billings Cen- tral Rams were too much to take on as the Eagles fell 37-10 in Eastern A confer- ence action in Billings on Saturday night. Ryan's 172 rushing yards in the opening half alone were enough to jumpstart the Rams in the conference victory. As the clock wound down in the opening quarter, Sidney's offense looked to get something on the scoreboard as the Rams led the Eagles 10-0. A 16-yard gain by quarterback Gresh Jones looked promising, but the visitors were short about two yards of a first down. Deciding to go for it on a fourth and two, Billings Central's Dayton Cogdill broke through a gap in the line and stopped Jones, forc- ing Sidney to turnover on downs. With the Rams deep in Sidney territory hovering the goal line, the Eagles swarmed ontop of the Rams, and Sidney's Trent Schilling came out of the pile with a recovered fumble in hand. Offensively, Sidney couldn't convert again. The Rams had no problem with finding their rhythm as Ryan scored two touch- downs before halftime and extended his team's lead to 24-0 on top of Sidney. It wasn't until the end of the third that Sidney's offense started clicking. A 24-yard run from Logan Thiel put the Eagles into Rams' territory on the 36- yard line. A three-yard run from Austin Kendall had the Eagles just short of a first down, but another Kendall drive gave Sidney a 14-yard gain for a first down at the 15-yard line. The Rams jumped the gun on defense and received an off-sides penalty that moved Sidney even closer to score on the 11. Kendall finished off the drive with a touchdown, and Cody Johnson's PAT cut Billings Central's lead to 31-7. Despite not producing the same offense in the second half, the Rams finished off the game holding the Eagles to a field goal with less than a minute left in regulation. Johnson's three points cut Sidney's deficit to 37-10, but the Eagles ran out of time with their late comeback try. Sidney hosts Glendive Fri- day night for homecoming.

Ulbertson str,ngho ds Fairview squad Class C conference football battle BY SARAH BLOOM SIDNEY HERALD The Cowboys proved just as deadly in the air as on the ground on Friday night when the Culbertson- Bainville squad engineered a 66-26 victory over the visiting Fairview Warrior squad. The opening quarter was defensively driven as both teams struggled to convert first downs. Fairview stopped Cow- boy back Shayne Cochran decently to start, but quar- terback Taylor Bridges found other ways to get the ball down the field. Strong runs by Bridges and a first-down gain from Cochran led to an easy pass to Colton Zahn for the first score of the night with 3:22 left in the first quarter. Before the end of the quar- ter, the 'boys put another touchdown up after Zahn made a 34-yard reception from Bridges. Cochran's run tacked on two points to take the Cowboys to a 14-0 lead over the Warriors. Fairview's offense tested the Cowboys in the second. Josh Hurley's efficient runs in the second moved the chains for the Warriors, but Culbertson-Bainville's defense caught on. Fairview's defense kept up the pace in the second quarter. Jared Gustafson, a 6-4 junior, turned heads on the Cowboys' sideline with an interception which gave the Warriors a favorable field to work with. Runs by Taryn Candee and Brett Berry moved the visi- tors deep in Cowboy territo- .

Monte Cayko's pass to Ben Hardy tacked on two and cut Culbertson-Bainville's lead to 22-8 with 2:43 remaining in the half. Just as it looked like the Warriors were digging out of the hole, Cochran's 10-yard touchdown with 25 seconds left put momentum back onto the Cowboys' shoulders. Two points from Tony Williams extended his team's lead to 30-8 going into half time. The third started out in the host's favor. Fairview wasn't able to manage a score until late in the quarter after the Cowboys extended their score to 44. But Cayko's pass to Gustafson still kept the Warriors in the game with a 44-14 score. With a running clock in the fourth, the end was an inevi- table win for Culbertson-Ba- inville, but that didn't mean Fairview gave up easily. With 1:14 left in regulation, Hurley's touchdown cut the Cowboys' lead to 66-26, but the effort wouldn't be enough in the end.
