Silver Bay junior Mason Ollman ran for 214 yards and three touchdowns in the Mariners' 45-6 homecoming romp over Hill City/Northland on Friday, Oct. 5, in Silver Bay.

Ollman scored all three touchdowns in the first half — two running and one receiving — and the Mariners jumped out to a 24-6 lead at half time.

Riley Tiboni through the touchdown pass to Ollman and sophomore Ero Wallin scored a touchdown late in the second quarter.

Tiboni, Peyton Westerlund and Carter Zabrocki added touchdowns in the second half for the Mariners.

Silver Bay (2-4) has made it through the teeth of its brutal 2018 schedule, with three of its last four games against teams with one loss between them and the other, North Woods, will play 11-man football in 2019.

With just three seniors, Silver Bay's younger players have gained plenty of experience and will face teams in Ely and Chisholm with just two wins combined in 2019.
