DICKINSON, N.D. -- Tyger Frye caught a touchdown for the fourth consecutive game and Dawson McGlothlin intercepted two passes as Dickinson State improved to 5-0 Saturday with a 23-3 North Star Athletic Association football win over Dakota State at the Biesiot Activities Center.
Frye, the former Billings Senior High standout who has set numerous Dickinson State receiving records, scored on a 7-yard pass from Drew Boedecker in the second quarter. Frye finished with four catches for 53 yards and the TD, his fifth receiving touchdown of the season. He also completed a pass for 32 yards in Saturday's game.
McGlothlin, meanwhile, had a huge game in the Blue Hawks' secondary, intercepting two passes and breaking up four others. It was the second consecutive game with an interception for the former Sidney High standout.
Dickinson State's defense had another stellar outing, limiting Dakota State to just three points and 236 yards. Dakota State was able to muster only 79 rushing yards on 31 carries, as Reece Hoherz paced the Dickinson State defense with nine total tackles. Dakota State quarterback Torren Devericks completed 21 of 45 pass attempts for 157 yards.
Outside of Frye's TD and a Derek Tabor 2-yard run in the fourth quarter, Dickinson State's offense had to frequently settle for field goals on Saturday. Jeremiah Payne, who played his high school football at Westby-Grenora, made three field goals in the game from 27, 28 and 37 yards. He was also 2-for-2 on point-after attempts.
Boedecker finished 19-of-29 passing for 204 yards, the one touchdown and one interception. Jaret Lee had a team-high six catches for a game-high 98 yards, and former Helena Capital Bruin Conor McCarvel had five catches for 27 yards.
