With perfect regular year done, Dubois set for 6-man grid playoffs
Oct 23, 2012 - By Randy Tucker, Sports Writer
Dubois concluded a perfect regular season with an 85-32 blowout of long-distance rival Guernsey-Sunrise and now prepares to host the first two round of playoff games in the Class 1-A 6-man football division.
Dubois erupted for 31 and 36 points, respectively, in the first and third quarters to take a commanding lead early over the visiting Vikings.
The 85 points came in just three periods and tops the previous season high of 76 tallied against Meeteetse.
With a dozen touchdowns in the game, scoring came quickly and in myriad ways for the Rams.
Sterling Baker paced the Rams with five scores, three coming on runs and two more on returns. Baker also threw for a pair of touchdowns.
Senior teammate Jesse Hawk was close behind with three scores on long runs and another on a 45-yard scoring pass from Baker.
With the game never really in doubt, Dubois head coach David Trembly had the opportunity to give some of his lineman the chance to run the ball. Senior Cody Flynn had a pair of rushes and scored on a 10-yard power run.
Nathan Moore plays as a blocking back for the Rams on most plays but caught three passes in this game, one a four-yard touchdown from Baker. Moore added another score on a 34-yard breakaway run.
Dubois hosts No. 4 seed Hanna Elk Mountain from the South conference Friday at 2 p.m. The Rams walloped the Miners just three weeks ago 63-0. Hanna enters the game with just a single win on the season in a 92-59 shootout with Eden-Farson. The Miners are capable of putting a lot of points on the board as they finished the season with an 85-69 loss to Ten Sleep at home.
DUBOIS 31 18 36 0 -- 85
GUERNSEY-SUNRISE 14 12 0 6 -- 32
