Playing catchup on tired legs
I wasn’t around to keep track of football last week. Instead I was here.
And wouldn’t you know it, a few Clark County players had huge games last Saturday … Murphy’s Law, I guess.
My legs still hurt, but I’ll try to play catchup. Expect a more timely report this weekend.
Ellis Henderson (Skyview) caught a 25-yard touchdown pass in overtime as Montana eked out a 51-48 win over Sacramento State.
Henderson had five catches for 180 yards. He leads the Grizzlies in catches (30) touchdown receptions (12) and receiving yards (690)
The victory kept Montana’s FCS playoff hopes alive, as they improved to 7-2 overall and 4-2 in the Big Sky Conference.
