North Border Football Season ends in State Quarterfinals

9-MAN: Shootout settled by inches
By Greg DeVillers, Herald Staff Writer

PEMBINA, N.D. - After accumulating 509 yards in total offense, the final few inches were the ones that really mattered to Seth Nichols.

Nichols' 3-yard touchdown run as time expired gave Dakota Prairie a 56-51 win against North Border in the quarterfinals of the North Dakota state 9-man football playoff quarterfinals Saturday.
On a fake option, Nichols went straight ahead. As he was being tackled, Nichols reached across the goal line, with the ball just inches beyond the line as time expired and he was downed.
“Those were the hardest yards of the game,” Nichols said. “I had to really stretch it out. My legs are done. They (Eagles) really hit you. I'm hurting.”

But the 6-foot-4 senior put the hurt to the Eagles' defense. He was 14-of-33 passing for 277 yards and two touchdowns and carried 33 times for 232 yards and five TDs. Nichols accumulated more than 100 yards in total offense in each of the four quarters.

North Border senior Tanner Carpenter hung right with Nichols, going 13-of-33 for 375 yards and five touchdowns passing, and rushing for 90 yards and a score.

“I figured that with two quarterbacks like this going at it, the team with the ball last would win,” Dakota Prairie coach Garrett Magner said. “Both defenses gave up a lot of big plays.”

There were a lot of players with big numbers. Ross Severson rushed for 170 yards and Mitchell Brodell had 124 yards on six catches for Dakota Prairie. The Eagles had a pair of 100-yard receivers in Dustyn Chale (eight catches for 140 yards, including two outstanding catches for touchdowns late in the first half) and Mike Smith (6-154).

The outcome came down to a shootout in the final three minutes.
With 2:53 left, Nichols scored on a 13-yard run for a 50-44 lead. Just 34 seconds later, Smith was open behind the Dakota Prairie secondary and hauled in a Carpenter pass for a 50-yard score. Carpenter kicked the extra point and North Border led 51-50 with 2:19 to go.

“We were happy to get the lead, but we weren't overconfident,” North Border coach Jeff Carpenter said. “They had three timeouts left and lots of time. We knew they could go the length of the field.”

Dakota Prairie went 92 yards on nine plays on the winning drive. The big play was a 38-yard Seth Frederick catch for a first down on the Eagles' 20. “That was a beautiful catch; he had to reach back for the pass,” Magner said.

Three plays later, Nichols ended the game with the game-winning touchdown.
Dakota Prairie (10-1) plays at Napoleon next Saturday in the state semifinals. North Border closed with a 10-1 record.
