With a large senior night crowd in Power, the Power-Dutton/Brady Titans football team moved to 5-0 in the season after a 28-12 win over Harlowton.
The Titans struck first after Jackson Widhalm took a kickoff back 70 yards while Brady Smelser and Ben Lehnerz pulled in Nick Widhalm’s passes for a touchdown apiece. Fullback AJ Taylor also contributed on the ground with a late-game rushing touchdown.
“We struggled in the first half and allowed Harlowtown to return a kickoff for a touchdown, but we responded in the second half where our guys stepped up and got the win,” said Widhalm.
The Titans’ next test will be against the Geraldine-Highwood Rivals on Oct. 12. That game could decide the number-one seed in the Northern Six-Man Subdivision.
Power Volleyball keeps it rolling
The Power Pirates kept to their winning ways after besting Valier in five games on Oct. 3.
Before the road victory in Valier, Power swept the Dutton/Brady DiamondBacks in the latest chapter of their volleyball rivalry. In front of a large homecoming crowd, the Pirates got off to a fast-paced start and never let off the accelerator. The final scores from the contest were 25-15, 25-8, 25-16.
“We have been playing well. Our team chemistry has been the best it has been for a while, which helps us win on the floor,” said junior Kinsey May.
The Power Pirates are having a breakout year sitting in second place in the 6C West Volleyball Division with a 6-1 record. Their only loss of the year came at the hands of the first place Simms Tigers. The Pirates will play Simms for a rematch on Oct. 11 at Power High School.
