GLENDALE, Ariz. — Marco Wilson and Isaiah Simmons scored touchdowns on two pick-6s late in the first half and used that stunning change in momentum to lift the Arizona Cardinals over the New Orleans Saints 42-34 on Thursday night. The game was tied at 14 when Saints quarterback Andy Dalton threw the game-changing interceptions on consecutive drives that were barely a minute apart. The first came when Saints receiver Marquez Callaway bobbled a potential catch. The Cardinals crowd — which hadn't seen a win since Oct. 24 of last season against the Texans — roared its approval. The Saints led 7-3 late in the first quarter and looked as if they were going to score another touchdown, but Cardinals cornerback Antonio Hamilton intercepted Dalton's pass in the end zone.3 months ago The Bismarck Tribune
Century got out to a big lead early on and ran away with play to take an early 1-0 lead. "Bismarck is a talented group and a good team and it takes a lot of energy and trust in ourselves to get it done." Seemingly displeased by their play in allowing Bismarck back into the second set, the Patriots were all business to start the third. "We were playing team ball," Fridley said. "We brought some JV kids (to replace Nissley) in the third set," Zastoupil said.3 months ago The Bismarck Tribune

In their state quarterfinal game against West Fargo Thursday at the state Class A tournament, the Sabers found it. Both teams started strong in the second set, but the Packers pulled away after the media timeout to push the Sabers to the brink. "We knew West Fargo was a strong defensive team," Astle said. But as it has all season, Legacy clawed its way back into the match, taking advantage of a number of West Fargo mistakes to level the game back up. "It's about belief and the value of watching St. Mary's and Jamestown take Century to five sets," Astle said.2 months ago The Bismarck Tribune
