Beulah falls in rematch with DT
By Jarann Johnson
Dickinson Trinity has had Beulah’s number for the last two seasons. Trinity beat Beulah last year to knock them away from a Region 4/1A regular season title and they beat Beulah again this year, which put Beulah in danger of missing the playoffs.
Beulah went to Trinity Saturday afternoon for a rematch, hoping to take revenge and prove they were once again the big dogs in the region. After tying the game at 12-12 in the third quarter Trinity had enough and bit down harder, scoring 22 unanswered to win the game
Beulah walked off the field with a 34-12 loss, ending their season with a mark of 6-4 and a state quarterfinal appearance.
Beulah head coach Jim Dooley said his team played hard but made costly errors.
“We played hard. We played stupid and hard. I’ve said for a long time – the most misleading stat in football is penalty yards. But they should have stupid penalty yards like illegal procedure, jumping offsides, illegal motion. Delay of game when we are in a hurry up – that baffles me. I think we had seven of those,” Dooley added.
