Down 7-0 at halftime, Pierre got even when Trey Lewis’ 33-yard run set up the offense, and Cade Kaiser ran 28 yards for a score on a 4th-and-16 play. Jett Zabel’s 1-yard run was the next Pierre score. Then Lewis went 18 yards to put the Govs in the lead at 20-14. George Stalley’s 66-yard touchdown reception was the clincher.

Broch Zeeb’s touchdown pass to Barrett Schweitzer cut the deficit to 21-6. Bon Homme answered with a score, then Zeeb ran in a touchdown from two yards out and got the two-point conversion, and the score was 28-14. Paxton Deal’s 49-yard TD run and another two-point PAT brought the Buffs to within 28-22. However, an onsides kick attempt failed, Bon Homme covering the ball and running out the clock. SCHS is now 3-1.

Denver Broncos: The Broncos led at one point by 21-3, but the game changed in an instant when a Denver player was ejected for targeting. After that it was all Washington as the Commanders won, 35-33. Bronco quarterback Russell Wilson threw a desperation “Hail, Mary” pass into the end zone on the final play of the game, and it was caught, but Denver then failed on a two-point conversion that would have forced overtime. Now 0-2, Denver goes to Miami (2-0) at noon Sunday on CBS.

“Make this the time that you realize your time is precious and should be bestowed only on those who bring you comfort, positivity, support, love or joy. Remember you are the main act, not a warmup, and this is no dress rehearsal. This is it. The curtain is well and truly up. Shine on!”
— Donna Ashworth


Minnesota Twins: The Twins have failed to let their grip on the A.L. Central Division fade away in the past week, winning five of seven games and stretching their lead over Cleveland to as many as eight games. Minnesota took three of four from the Chicago White Sox and two of three from Cincinnati, all on the road.

“It was miraculous. It was almost no trick at all, he saw, to turn vice into virtue and slander into truth, impotence into abstinence, arrogance into humility, blasphemy into wisdom, brutality into patriotism, and sadism into justice. Anybody could do it. It required no brains at all. It merely required no character.”
— Joseph Heller, author of “Catch 22,” in 1961.
