Monday night Dalton's team traveled to JWP to take on the Bulldogs(puppies). They fell short 18-14. Dalton passed for one touchdown and ran in another plus the extra points. With all the rain we have a Tremendous amount of bugs as you can see by the photo's! Dalton came out for around 2 plays. He had a couple of nice punts and his throws have become a lot better. Thursday night they are home at 4:30 against Alden Conger then he will get to dress again for the Varsity game Friday night. Friday night Hills Bever Creek comes to town and they have the same record.4-0. This will be a HUGE test for the Raiders!

Will it every end! It has been 3 days since it rained last and we contintue to take on water in the area. Another portion of Highway 169 in southern Minnesota has been closed because of rising floodwaters. An 11-mile stretch of Highway 169 immediately west of the Minnesota River is now closed from Le Sueur to St. Peter, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation. This means Highway 169 in now closed from Henderson to Mankato. This recent closure makes St. Peter unreachable by state highway. MnDOT said both the Highway 169 closure from St. Peter to Le Sueur is so crews can reinforce the dike built along Highway 169 north of St. Peter. This has made out quiet road from our home a major freeway! Keep praying for sunshine and and wind to dry everything out. Farmers are wondering if they will ever get the crops out.

Busy week of football for the boyz. Dalton had a Jr High game in Nicollet on Thursday vs. Cleveland. The Raiders fell short of time with the score 13 -8. Dalton has one heck of a cannon for an arm. Next Friday we celebrate Senior Night for this years graduating football players when JWP comes to town.
The Raiders are 3-0 and tied at 23 Pt's for 1st place in the conference with Truman. It is exciting to see all the boyz play both sides of the ball. Bubba is a force to be reckoned with the field, QB1 and Bubba have a deal that if Tabor stops the sacks QB1 buys the pizza. So far Tabor has two pizzas coming. Tanner is seeing more and more time on the field wanting to earn himself a starting spot on defense. Those poor players see him coming and they think he can hurt a fly then...........lights out buddy! Just keep praying we keep everyone healthy!

Yesterday, Dalton's team traveled to GHEC (Granada,MN about 10 miles from Iowa) they beat the Mustangs 18-16. Dalton ran in two touch downs (one for 51 yards) and threw the 3rd for 15 yards. The Raiders needed a yard to get a first down so they ran a qb keeper and Dalton shook off two tackles to score. We have 28 kids out for Jr High FB and only 16 out for Varsity.
NPS is off to a great start with ALL of our team undefeated! Everyone has a winning record going into the 3rd week of play. From Jr High vb to Varsity the Raider's are red hot! Friday night we travel to Madelia to take on the Black hawks. Rankings came out and FB is ranked 2ND in the state for 9-man.
Everyone is looking forward to have a night off! But we need to start picking pumpkins & squash before the rain moves in. Where is that Indian Summer?
