One of the more eye-popping results from Week 0 was that of Brent Olson's MVP Titans. After giving up an opening-game score to Dylan Gabriel of Stanley County, the TITANS ripped off 40-straight points for a 40-7 win.
Stanley County has some serious speed in Gabriel, and J.D. Carter, a big-line and a talented senior QB in Riley Hannum....and the Titans put it to them pretty good.
Jesse Hastings: 18-106 - TD
Weston Tobin: 99 yards, two TD's (Including this 63-yard SCORCHER)
Lotta folks getting involved as evidenced by the Scoring Summary:
SC: Dylan Gabriel 31 run (Reid Wieczorek kick)
MVP: Weston Tobin 63 run (Jesse Hastings run)
MVP: Weston Tobin 3 run (Colton Tobin run)
MVP: Rylee Deinert 48 pass from Hayden Haak (Hastings run)
MVP: Hayden Haak 8 run (Hastings run)
MVP: Hastings 1 run (Hastings run)
The South Dakota sportswriters noticed and vaulted MVP up the ladder to No. 3 in the latest polls:
1. SF Christian (27) 1-0 139 1
2. Bridgewater-Emery/Ethan (1) 1-0 109 2
3. Mount Vernon/Plankinton 1-0 67 5
4. Canton 1-0 62 RV
5. Winner 0-1 19 3
Receiving votes: Aberdeen Roncalli 13, Woonsocket/Wessington Springs/Sanborn Central 7, Beresford 2, Sioux Valley 1.
So, MVP sees Wagner, in Wagner as the Red Raiders lost their opener, 14-0 to that Woonsocket/Wessington Springs/Sanborn Central team the Titans will see two Friday's from now.
Every game is a big one, will be keeping an eye on this squad as the season progresses.
