All season, Wells County has approached football with a one-game-at-a-time philosophy.
Now the Bears have run out of games — for this season and beyond.
Wells County meets Wyndmere-Lidgerwood at 3 p.m. today in the North Dakota 9-man high school football championship game at the Alerus Center. It’s a grand finale for the Wells County program. Due to declining numbers, the program will fold and Wells County will join Harvey in a co-op next fall, an arrangement that was approved last fall.

The Wells County 9-man football team continued to impress with its 27-8 victory over St. John during the state quarterfinals in Fessenden last Saturday.
Playing their final season before being dissolved into a co-op with Harvey, the Bears are now just one win away from a bus ride to Grand Forks to compete in the state title game, which would be a storybook ending to the current team’s legacy that dates back to 1987.
Wells County will look to ride a little momentum into the District 7 tournament after defeating Midkota 50-40 in Friday night’s play-in game.
Midkota was able to keep the deficit in the single digits for much of the game, but hurt themselves sending the Bears to the free throw line 27 times — which was 19 more trips than Midkota made.
If there must be budget cuts, a grassroots group in Wells County prefers the ax fall on the county’s governing board rather than on the road department.
