Beulah FB suffers upset
By Jarann Johnson
The Beulah Miners have developed a program that is feared around the state. When teams face Beulah, they know that they are going to have to be prepared for strong kids and a powerful run game.
Kindred didn’t let the name on the jerseys intimidate them, and came away with a 34-21 playoff road win.
Beulah couldn’t stop Kindred early on. Derek Houska and Ethan Lingen both ran in short first quarter scores to put Kindred up 14-0 after one quarter.
Beulah’s trouble stopping the Kindred offense continued in the second quarter with Kindred scoring two more touchdowns. Lingen threw two touchdown passes; a 20-yarder to Brock Benson and a 40-yarder to Nickey Zink.
Lingen’s touchdown passes put Kindred up 28-0. Beulah salvaged the half with one touchdown drive, which was capped on a 1-yard Reece Hoherz run.
Beulah Head Coach Jim Dooley elected to go for two but the Miners couldn’t convert, making the halftime score 28-6. Beulah’s offense and defense needed to figure things out in the second half and find the same mojo that helped them come back from a 21-point deficit against Valley City at home.
