Remsen-St. Mary’s posted a 55-point first half on Friday night, as the fourth-ranked Hawks cruised to a 73-14 non-district victory over Boyer Valley in Eight-Man football action at Dunlap.

Harpenau also ran five times for 85 yards and two more scores.
Brenden Fisch carried the ball nine times for 103 yards and one score as well for the Hawks.
"We saw first hand the level of competition a playoff-caliber team needs. St. Mary’s, fresh off its home win against Audubon the week before, came to town with a veracity we haven’t seen in a while," commented Boyer Valley coach Cody Malone.
"St. Mary’s dominated every facet of the game and we had to pull most of starters early in the third quarter," he added.
"Offensively, we were confident in our game plan, but couldn’t keep drives alive long enough to punch in some scores," the Bulldog boss stated.
Defensively for BV, Jesse Soma led in tackles with five solos and three assists.
Ten Eyck had five solos. Freshman Drew Volkmann recovered a fumble for the hosts.
BV will look to bounce back this Friday night against West Harrison at Mondamin.
