Raiders advance to the Section Championship game after a tough fought 7 - 6 victory over the rival Cleveland Clippers. It was a defensive game as both teams had trouble moving the ball with any consistency. It was a 45 yard pass play that got Nicollet out in the lead in the 2nd half and the defense was able to stop the 2 point conversion on Cleveland's score to seal the victory. As you can see Tabor had his hands full blocking Cleveland's biggest player. We missed a few opportunities to put this one out of reach early in the 2nd half, but were able to buckle down on defense to hold on. Jason, Angie and Collin came down to give Tabor a raucous cheering section and if you ask Collin he will tell you Tabor's not so tough cause he tackled him several times before the game. And then gave him a high five that just about tipped him over. Friday we are off to Alden/Conger to get pay back for the double overtime loss we had 3 weeks ago. Winner will advance to the state quarterfinals game held at SMSU in Marshall MN. We are hoping for a very Happy Halloween.

Ole, Ole, Ole, Ole... Elliott Boyz were in attendance as the Mavericks of Mankato State put a whoopin on UND. With 3 short handed goals (one was an empty netter when UND was skating 6 on 3 late in the 3rd) the final score was 5 - 1. Also got a chance to visit with the Kividt's who were down from Campbell all dressed up in their green and white. Mrs. Kividt was all 3 boyz 2nd grade teacher and Mr. Kividt was the business and computer teacher. There youngest Michael was down at SWSU in Marshall for a campus visit. Tabor and a buddy have the tickets for tomorrow night and it should be a good one. Game got a little chippy at the end and I would imagine there will be a few hard penalties to start out Sat's game. There was no Football tonight as it is MEA weekend and we will host a 2nd round play-off game next Sat night as we earned the #2 seed and a bye for 1st round action on Tues. Win 2 game and go to State. The 2 teams we will play, 1 we beat in week #1 and the other we lost to in double OT by 2, so should be fun if we can put a couple of good ones together.

It was a cold dark night for the Raiders in Westbrook/Walnut Grove. With temps in the 40*s and a brisk wind from the north the boys had a hard time handeling the ball. With this game behind us we look forward to the playoffs. The Raiders have a bye on Tuesday night and then will play Saturday Oct 25th ( Dalton's B-Day) at home.

Our family grew over the weekend with the addition of a new baby girl cousin Kloee DeSmet and you know mom is going to have tons of pictures of her in the weeks to come. We added Rosco our new blue wiemerier puppy. Blue and Rosco are having some problems sharing the kennel, Rosco wants all the pillows out and Blue wants Rosco out! Next weekend we take our new hunting buddy out looking for pheasants.
What can you say what a game. Triple over time loss to Alden Conger the boyz played their heart out. The score board didn't show it but the team won. Full speed ahead for homecoming week. Monday night the JR.High and J.V. have a re-match with Alden-Conger on home turf.
