On Friday, Aiden Boechler lined up for a pressure filled PAT against Lennox.

The Orioles led the entire ball game and the score stood at 6-0 Lennox with just over 30-seconds remaining..

With 28-seconds remaining, Coby Maeschen (6-foot-3, 215 lb. junior) plunged over the middle on 3rd & 4 to tie the game at 6-6

Enter Aiden Boechler…

Games are not easy to win in the LOADED Dak-12 conference so to get an early game-winner like that is gigantic for Coach Jordan Huska. A lot of folks talk about special teams being important, some say they are 1/3 of the game.

Big game, tons of pressure - ON THE ROAD - and Boechler stepped up and calmly drilled it for the game winner.

On Friday Dell Rapids has their home opener against Flandreau.

The following week, its another home game, this time vs. 11A powerhouse Madison.
