Miners rush for 500 yards in win
By Jarann Johnson
Beulah head coach Jim Dooley wasn’t happy when Garrison decided elected to play a JV only schedule late in the summer. Finding a team to play late in the summer is a massive challenge. Beulah got locked into an away game with Minot’s JV team for a Thursday night.
Nothing about it was exciting, but it was a game and Beulah used the time to get in some quality work, topping Minot JV 46-16. Beulah’s run game was dominant in the game, rushing for 506 yards. Senior running back Kaleb McGraw led Beulah’s offense with 234 yards and 2 touchdowns. Tryson Miller also had a strong game on the ground with 103 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Beulah quarterback Nate Battest didn’t have a strong game passing. He was 2 of 8 for 16 yards but his ground game was impressive. Battest, a sophomore, ran for 90 yards on 9 carries. Dawson Bieber also played a big role in Beulah’s offense, running for 67 yards and 2 touchdowns.
