Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - It’s Halloween and for football teams at the FargoDome, they were hoping for more treats than tricks; just one win away from a trip to the state tournament.
Ada-Borup back in a familiar spot, trying to go back to state, taking on Waubun.
Scoreless in the 2nd quarter, Ada-Borup's JD Kappes finds Lance Ruebke over the top of the defense. It goes 80 yards for a score. Kappes was 11-of-19 for 171 yards; 7-0 Cougars at the half.
The Cougars then score on their first possession of half two. Blake Fetting, who rushed for all but 3 of his 131 yards after halftime, finds the end zone; 14-0 Ada-Borup.
Waubun finally got on the board in the 4th as Jordan Spaeth scores17-8.
That's how it ended. After losing the section final last year, Ada-Borup heads to state for the 4th time in 5 years with a 17-8 win.
Nathan Brager- Ada-Borup Head Coach: “We're senior heavy and they were pretty disappointed; lot of those guys played in that game and came up a little short and so they were on a mission from game one. Had a tough regular season schedule, but I think that prepared us for the playoff run.”
J.D. Kappes- 11-19, 171 Yards Passing, TD: “We knew we had to get big guys into the weight room to get bigger and stronger and make it deep into the playoffs.”
