FOX's Finest: 1/2

By  | 

We've said goodbye to 2016, but we can thank that year for the memories. We'll recap the best of the best from the last 365 days in this week's edition of the FOX's Finest.

In high school football action, Douglas playing host to then-third-ranked Yankton. With under 20 seconds left in the first half of play , Patriots Trevor Severson hands it off to Branson Taylor, who pushes his way through several Bucks, and runs it down for the touch down. The extra point would tie this game up at 7 to end the first half. And it's Douglas coming through with the tremendous upset. Final Score 14 to 7.

Colton Nesland takes the plate at the Little League District Tournament, and right off the bat you can tell that ball is gone. A fan catches it in the stands behind the center field fence for the 2-run homer. Canyon Lake won the District Tournament, 16-1, and went to Indianapolis for Regions.

Saint Thomas More hosting Belle Fourche on the boys' hardwood. Time running out in the first half, the Cavs come up short. Jake O'Byrne gets the rebound, looks upcourt to Breck Young, who drills the buzzer-beating half court shot!

Janay Jumping Eagle scored her 1,000th career point in the semi-final game at the LNI this year. Little Wound would go on to win the LNI Championship, beating Pine Ridge, 65-31.

More from High school boys basketball playoff action, Wall taking on Oelrichs and the Eagles on the move, Wall picking up steam and running the floor, Rylee Schreiber kicks it off the back window, Allan McDonnell is right there to flush the rebound. Terrific finish for McDonnell, but it's Oelrichs getting the win 65-to-51.

In the Class A State Track Meet in the 4-by-800 meter relay, Custer's Tori Glazier anchoring her team to a state title and the state meet record by over five seconds with a time of nine-minutes-26-point-26 seconds.

A year ago on this day, the Rapid City Rush squared up with the Tulsa Oilers... literally. Gloves went flying late in the game, and after the final buzzer, the brawl continued. 5 players were suspended for a combined 22 games, totaling 216 penalty minutes. And in case you forgot, Rush goaltender, Danny Battochio got in on the action too.

We hit the diamond as Post 22 takes on Rocky Mountain in the Firecracker tournament. Spencer Gendrean hits far left, but look at this! Justin Kramer is going for it. He's tracking it down, and makes the unbelievable catch sending him over the fence in left field. Let's take another look. Justin Kraemer. Going over the fence for the catch that would end the top half of the inning.
