Nevis at Norman County East/Ulen-Hitterdal (Football) (KRJB 106.5FM)

The Nevis Tigers, playing their first game since Oct. 15th, relied on a quick-scoring offense to defeat the Norman County East/Ulen-Hitterdal Titans. The Titans would lead first with their first two drives of the game combing for almost 13 minutes of time of possession in the first half and both capped by a Connor Nelson rushing TD for a 14-0 lead. Nevis then came back with big gains on the ground and through the air to tie the score with under a minute remaining in the second quarter. But NCE-UH would go into the half with the lead on a 43-yard reverse pass from Connor Nelson to Reed Klemetson for a 20-14 halftime advantage. It was a short lead with Nevis taking the second half kickoff to the 21-yard line and Derek Lindow found the endzone three plays later for a 21-20 lead. Lindow would reach the endzone twice more before the third quarter ended with touchdown runs of 48 and 1-yard sandwiching an Ian Ahrendt 77-yard kick return touchdown for a 41-26 lead heading into the fourth quarter. The Titans cut the lead to a one score game on a Zechariah Juarez touchdown and after both teams traded possessions NCE-UH had the ball on their own 15-yard line with 1:37 remaining. They were able to drive across midfield but the hail-mary throw fell incomplete as time expired and Nevis held on for the 41-34 win.
