BISMARCK — The Bismarck-Henning/Rossville-Alvin football team made more than sure they were going to clinch the Vermilion Valley Conference title.
The Blue Devils scored early and often as they defeated Salt Fork 50-0 on Friday to complete an undefeated conference season and get their first solo VVC crown since 2015.
Unlike most games, the Blue Devils got going with the passing game as Avery McConkey hit Mason Hackman with two scoring passes in the first quarter. McConkey first hit Hackman on a 51-yard pass and then the two hooked up for a 29-yard pass.
Caleb Lahey would run for a 79-yard score in the second quarter and would end up with 89 yards on only three carries. McConkey would hit Hackman again for a 10-yard scoring strike and a 26-0 halftime lead.
In the third quarter, Jacob Akins scored on a 22-yard run and Rhett Harper scored on a 20-yard run, Eric Watson picked up a safety on defense and Michael Hackman scored on a 39-yard run to end the scoring.
With the win, the Blue Devils end the VVC season at 5-0 and is 7-1 overall. They will travel to Seneca for their season finale. The Storm drop to 5-3 and 3-1 and will play Oakwood next week.
