‘That’s the marquee win we’ve been waiting for:’ Bulldogs take down Regina 21-7


“Last week I thought was one of the best defensive efforts we ever had, but we might have had it beat tonight,” said head coach Dan Anderson after the Bulldogs’ 21-7 win over the Regals. MFL MarMac’s defense held Regina to just 77 rushing yards and kept the powerful Regal offense off the board until late in the fourth quarter.

Kaden Stocker snagged a 26-yard reception in MFL MarMac’s win at Regina.

The Bulldog defense, including Tristen Koehn, pressured the Regina quarterbacks throughout the night.

Running back Cullen McShane had 77 yards and a touchdown on 15 rushing attempts and caught one pass.

“We came out really jacked up,” said Wyatt Powell. “We played four great quarters and, sometimes, you can’t do that. Tonight, we really showed we can do that.”

Fullback Gabe McGeough ran the ball 16 times for 60 yards.

Austin Schlee recorded one of MFL MarMac's two sacks and also made 6 tackles.

Quarterback Carver Blietz-Bentien hands the ball off in the Bulldogs' win.

McGregor home is a frighteningly fun destination each Halloween


Halloween is Anne Kruse’s favorite Halloween. She decorates her and husband Jerry’s McGregor house inside and out each year, and also plans an elaborate themed party. (Photo by Audrey Posten)

This hand made witch had a crash landing on Anne Kruse’s porch. Kruse finds many decorating ideas on Pinterest.

These skeletons crawl on a structure next to the Kruse home on Walton Street.

This year’s theme is Egyptian, and Kruse has been busy creating a sarcophagus and hieroglyphics. There will also be a mummy and Egyptian queen.

Kruse typically starts decorating in mid-September. “Although, if I’m making things that are more involved, I’m planning them well in advance of that,” she remarked.

“We don’t do a lot of gore," Kruse said of the decorations. "Halloween is supposed to be fun."
