Carroll College running back Chance Demarais broke a school record for rushing in a career with 4,474 yards, coach Mike Van Diest became the winningest coach in Saints history with his 164th career victory, and the purple and gold made it a senior day to remember Saturday at Nelson Stadium.

The Saints topped Dickinson State 36-0 on a frigid day in Helena, their first shutout of the season. Demarais closed his career with a 219-yard performance and was the workhorse all day, finishing with 42 of his team's 56 carries. 

Carroll closes out the year with a 7-4 overall mark, going 7-3 in the Frontier Conference. The Saints will miss the postseason for the first time since 2000.

See tomorrow's Independent Record for more details on the game.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters. If you receive an error after submitting a comment, please contact us.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps:

    1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

    2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

    3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

    4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

    5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

    6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

    7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

    8. Your comment is in really poor taste.

    9. Don't write a novel. If your comment is longer than the article you're commenting on, you might want to cut it down a bit. Lengthy comments will likely be removed.
