Local HS football results: Sept. 11
Sept. 11 marked the fourth week of the high school football season in North Dakota. Below are capsule game summaries for four local contests across the region. The game recap for South Prairie at Nedrose can be found online at minotdailynews.com.
Surrey 34, TGU 32
SURREY — Junior running back Chris Jenner ran wild and scored the first four touchdowns on the ground for the Surrey Mustangs (4-0, 3-0 Region 3). However, a scoreless second half for the Mustangs nearly allowed the TGU Titans (2-2, 2-2 Region 3) to pull off an improbable comeback and spoil senior night.
TGU quarterback Cy Luna connected with Bryce Latendresse for three touchdown receptions in the fourth quarter from 31, 30 and 53 yards out. The Titans needed to convert one of their final two-point tries to at least send the game into overtime. However, both short yardage run attempts by Cody Frounfelter were stopped short.
Luna finished with five touchdown passes, four of which went to Latendresse and the other one to Brodey Keller. Alongside Jenner’s four touchdown runs, Surrey quarterback Rylan Scheig also threw a 17-yard score to Jesse Dalby in the second quarter.
Prior to the game, Surrey recognized its lone senior Isiah Mazingo on senior night.

VELVA — A 32-point explosion in the second quarter helped the Aggies (3-0, 2-0 Region 3) take the convincing victory over the Troopers (0-4, 0-2 Region 3). After Jersey Selzler and Gage Florence linked up for a 32-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter, Velva surged ahead.
Adam Schepp caught all three of his touchdowns in the second frame. Schepp snagged a 50-yard touchdown pass from Selzler before Tyson Tomlinson added a five-yard rushing touchdown. Then, Schepp kept his stellar night rolling with two separate two-yard touchdown receptions.
Tomlinson hustled down the field for a 39-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Aaden Olson added a 27-yard rushing touchdown in the fourth frame before Ty Iglehart scored the Troopers’ only touchdown.
