BISMARCK — Defensive coordinator Adam Meyer has been asking his Hall defensive backs for a “pick six” as a birthday present all football season. On Saturday, Colin Aimone delivered.
Aimone returned an interception 20 yards for a touchdown, his pick six giving the Red Devils a 20-7 lead with six minutes remaining in a 2A playoff opener over host Bismarck-Henning. The Red Devils’ defense made the score stand up, earning a second-round home game at 2 p.m. Saturday vs. Momence (7-3).
“That was his gift. He’s been asking for it all year. First playoff game he finally got it,” Aimone said. “I just read the quarterback’s eyes, and he was throwing right to the kid Tyler Taber was guarding. Right before he caught it, (Taber) just popped him,and the ball bounced off him, and it came right to me and I had a wide open lane and I just put it in.
