The Terry Terriers faced the Hysham Pirates Saturday afternoon at home for the Terriers’ homecoming football game.
The blistering temperatures reaching into the 90s, seemed to drain players from both teams pretty quickly, noted head coach Nathan Christofferson.
"This was a needed win for us since we were coming off a tough loss,” stated Christofferson, referring to the Terriers’ first game of the season at Big Sandy. “We are still working on things and changing around personnel to best suit the team.”
“We played very well for how hot it was and we were all excited to put a W on our belt," Christofferson added.
DJ Hubbert led the team with 4 touchdowns followed by Sergey Fredrickson with 2. Trevor Pisk recovered a fumble for a pick 6 and Jordan Lassle stepped up to the plate and scored a touchdown for a big-play moment for the hometown team.
"We have a great group of kids and have great depth on the team,” Christofferson stated. “The kids have been working hard in practice and it’s starting to show on the field.”
The final score was Terry 56, Hysham 45.
Terry will play Rosebud on Saturday, Sept. 17 at 1 p.m. on the Terriers’ home field.
Saturday’s game will include plenty of rotation, ensuring time on the field for every player, Christofferson noted.
