High School Football Recap: Comets outlast Golddiggers in 3OT

DEADWOOD, S.D. – The opening weekend of high school football continued on Friday night as Lead-Deadwood hosted Rapid City Christian.

Last season, the Golddiggers defeated the Comets in low scoring game, 6-0.

This year, that wasn’t the case.

After trailing 18-12 at half-time, the Golddiggers grabbed a 6-point lead in the fourth quarter.

However, the Comets scored in the final two minutes to tie it up at 24 a piece.

Rapid City Christian eventually won the game by a score of 36-30 in triple overtime.

The Comets have a week off now before they host St. Thomas More on Sept. 2.

The Golddiggers will try to bounce back when they travel to Hill City to play the Rangers on Aug. 26.
