Friday Night was Prep Redzone Dakotas' official launch, and the first game ever covered was the top ranked Viborg-Hurley Cougars taking on the Elkton- Lake Benton Elks. I haven't watched much 9-man football personally, and this was actually my first ever South Dakota High School football game. In terms of talent and excitement, this game did not disappoint, lots of big plays and scores for both teams. The Cougars are the returning Class 9AA Champions, and the Elks are a young up-and coming team, both teams had similar play styles. Here's a quick scoring recap for the game.
