LOCAL SPORTS – “ATHLETE OF THE WEEK”

(POWER) – BIG PERFORMANCES FROM A NUMBER OF PLAYERS IN POWER/DUTTON/BRADY’S FIRST ROUND PLAYOFF WIN OER TRI-CITIES LAST WEEK MADE FOR A TOUGH CHOICE OF THIS WEEK’S KSEN/K96—BOZEMAN TROPHY MALE ATHLETE OF THE WEEK.

WITH THAT SAID, WE DID MAKE A CHOICE AND THE NOMINATION GOES TO SR. RECEIVER, KICKER AND DEFENSIVE BACK TYLER ELLSWORTH.   ELLSWORTH DID A LOT OF GREAT THINGS IN THIS CONTEST INCLUDING, OPENING UP THE SCORING IN THE 1ST QUARTER WITH A 32-YEARD FIELD GOAL, WHICH IS WORTH 4 POINTS IN 6-MAN FOOTBALL.

HIS KICKING LEG PLAYED A BIG ROLE IN THE GAME AS HE KICKED 4 0F 5 EXTRA POINTS EACH WORTH 2 POINTS IN THE 6-MAN GAME.

THE STORY MOVES FORWARD ON THE OFFENSE AS ELLSWORTH CAUGHT 2 TD PASSES FROM SR. QB KELLEN DOHENY, WHO ALSO HAD A GREAT DAY.  ELLSWORTH LATER ON THREW A TD PASS TO DOHENY.

AND JUST WHEN WE THOUGHT WHAT ELSE COULD HE DO, ELLSWORTH HAD A NUMBER OF DEFLECTIONS AT THE DEFENSIVE BACK AND TWO INTERCEPTIONS.   TITANS COACH TOM TRANMER SAID HE IS VERY PROUD OF THE WAY HIS TEAM IS PLAYING AND THERE WERE A LOT OF TOP-NOTCH PERFORMANCE IN THE 55-21 WIN OVER A TEAM THAT JUST TWO WEEKS AGO THEY HAD BARELY SQUEAKED BY, 16-12.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR KSEN/K96—BOZEMAN TROPHY ATHLETE OF THE WEEK, SR. TYLER ELLSWORTH OF THE POWER/DUTTON/BRADY TITANS.   THE ATHLETE OF THE WEEK IS SPONSORED LOCALLY BY McDONALD’S IN CUT BANK.  McDONALD’S HONORS OUR ATHLETE’S WITH TWO FREE VALUE MEALS.
