Pine Ridge THORPEDOS Custer - 11A playoffs looking good
Sep 30, 2017

By Rich Winter

Fired up to hear that Pine Ridge defeated Custer last night, 26-7. More fired up when Corey Brown checked in last night and reminded me I should have come to the game.


Sounds like it was a good game until Ridge turned it on in the second half...."Losin for 30 minutes.. 7-0 until like. 7 minutes left in the 3rd and we came back to win 26-7," Brown told me. 


Check out the sweet video Brothe C Keith Jr. sent me that even attached some stats to the play in question - Halin Bad Bear connects with Darrell Vitalis Jr who keeps his feet in bounds & secures the football for a 15 yard TD to make the score 20-7 Pine Ridge up on Custer with 5:58 left in the 4th quarter


And so, Pine Ridge, the football program that all of South Dakota thought had no chance of making the 11A playoffs is 5-1 heading into the TUFF part of their schedule. 


@ Belle Fourche

@ Sturgis

Home vs. Little Wound to end the regular season.

Did not hear the final on the Little Wound vs. Belle Fourche game, BUT, Little Wound was up last time I checked. 


That is going to be a TUFF game on Friday against the Broncs....If Pine Ridge wins, they are in the 11A playoffs.


Can't wait to see what I get in my inbox after that game.

Stats anyone?

Good luck Thorpes, keep the train rolling...BIG FAN!
