Bismarck High School and Century High School are only a couple of miles apart, but on Friday, the Demons and Patriots football teams will drive a couple of hundred miles east to play for the Class-AAA Championship.
The Demons are undefeated and ranked no. 1. The Patriots are second with their only loss to BHS. Their regular season contest was in week eight. It was a learning tool for both sides.
Bismarck Senior, Canyon Stonecipher says, "they have Cade Feeney. He's an incredibly fast quarterback. He's well rounded. A big offensive line. Tanner Thorsness, a UND commit. He's hard to get through and he played both offense and defense and then a bunch of people they can go to."
"We learned that they're big, a lot bigger than us,” adds senior Koltan Nyhusmoen. “They have a lot of force and they're fast. They have some big guys on the line. They have Cade Feeney. he's a really good quarterback. They have a fast running back and a big fullback."
The AAA title game is the final game on Friday.
