Best Matchup This week:

O'Gorman at Rapid City Central 7:00pm MT

Matt White

These two teams have been decimated by injuries this season. Both the Cobblers and Knights lost their starting quarterbacks early in the season. Christian Boechler is the quarterback for Rapid City Central and has started to get into a groove recently. Last week he went 14/28 and  threw for 182 yards and three touchdowns against Sturgis. Blake Stone is the main threat for the Cobblers though. Stone once again topped the century mark in yards with 141 on 19 rushes last week. O'Gorman has been using the sophomore
Luke Fritsch at quarterback and he's done a nice job both running and throwing the ball when he has the chance. Fritsch is one of the few O'Gorman backs that hasn't sustained injury this year. Eion Donelan, Jayden Holzer, Tanner Schulte and Ben Briggs have all missed time in the backfield this year. More bad news for O'Gorman: they have to tend to Jake Neidringhaus due to injury. Jake has been one of the toughest defenders for the Knights this year and has played both ways for Coach Kueter. Matt White has been O'Gorman's main threat on the ground.

Best Matchup of the Week:

Yankton at Watertown 7:00 pm

Yankton threw the kitchen sink at O'Gorman last week and it worked. They used a formation with their interior line spread out and three quarterbacks in the backfield. JJ Hejna and Shay Bratland are the stars in focus for this game on Friday.
