Dubois Ends Regular Season 7-1 With Narrow Win Over Burlington
In a showdown of a couple of playoff-bound teams in 1A 6-man, Dubois outlasted Burlington 60-52 in a back-and-forth game. Burlington had a solid first quarter with 22 points thanks to touchdowns from Noah McMackin on a 5-yard run, Mickey Maroni on a 68-yard TD reception, and he added a 45-yard TD catch from quarterback Seth Wardell. In the first half, Wyatt Trembly scored 4 rushing touchdowns giving the Rams a 30-22 lead at the halftime break.
Each team found the end zone twice in the 3rd quarter as Joe Basset had a couple of scores on the ground for the Huskies and Trembly threw a touchdown pass and notched his 5th rushing touchdown of the game. Trembly added 2 more running scores in the 4th quarter so he finished the day with 7 touchdown runs and a whopping 350 yards rushing on 39 carries. Burlington also reached the house twice in the 4th quarter as Marconi caught his 3rd TD ball of the game and Bassett added to his rushing touchdown total. That's the kind of game you can expect in 6-man football.
Dubois is the #2 seed from the South and will host Meeteetse on Saturday afternoon at 1 pm. Burlington finished the regular season at 7-1 and the Huskies are the #1 seed from the North. They'll be at home on Saturday at 2 pm to take on Farson-Eden.
