Bruegeman and Forsman are crowned PHS Homecoming queen and king

Cottonwood’s Prairie High School held its homecoming Friday, Sept. 20, against Kendrick. Sydnee Bruegeman was crowned queen at the game (escorted by her brother, Easton Bruegeman) and Carson Forsman was crowned king.

COTTONWOOD — With lopsided wins over three of the Whitepine League’s upper division teams to start their season, the Kendrick boys had looked like a contender for the 1AD2 state title this fall.

But with a couple of top players on crutches last Friday night, Sept. 20, Kendrick was blown out by one of the top 1AD1 contenders.

The Prairie boys outscored the visitors 54-6 during the first half — and went on to win 62-18 — largely on the strength of ultralong first half touchdown runs by Cole Martin (67 yards), Owen Anderson (68 yards) and Brody Hasselstrom (67 yards).

Cole Schlader threw four touchdown passes during the first half, completing five-of-six attempts and totaling 135 yards.

“The guys came out and executed really well from the get-go,” PHS coach Ryan Hasselstrom said. “It was our homecoming, so it was good to see the guys fired up and ready to play. It was really a good all-around performance. Defensively, we had a couple big stops and offensively we were able to move the ball running and passing.”

The Pirates totaled 527 offensive yards.

Coming — Prairie (3-0) is set to visit Genesee (1-2) at 7 p.m. Friday night, Sept. 27.

Genesee lost to Valley Sept. 7. Those Bulldogs fell to Lapwai, 34-6, on Sept. 13. They beat Deary last Friday, 44-16, in Genesee.
