Philip Scotties defeat Lemmon/McIntosh 26-8

Scottie vs. Cowboy one-on-one ... Philip’s #24 Zane Fees caught a Scottie pass and ran it 26 yards, despite the best efforts from Lemmon/McIntosh to stop him.

The Scotties traveled to Lemmon on Friday, September 15, and defeated the Lemmon/McIntosh Cowboys 26-8.

Scotties 8 6 6 6 = 26

Cowboys 0 2 0 6 = 8

The long bus trip, the cold temperature, Philip's two previous easy wins ... something distracted the concentration of the Scotties during the first half. At least Coach Keven Morehart thought that his players' heads weren't where they should have been - in the game.

This first quarter started slowly - not until eight minutes into play did the Philip team score its first touchdown.

DM&E passenger cars stop in Philip

The PIONEER days of Philip, to REVIEW history, included the westward movement of the railroad. Perhaps someday passenger cars will once again become a part of South Dakota.

The Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern (DM&E) Railroad has been offering excursion rides and picnics aboard business cars to employees and invited guests as a part of its 20-year anniversary celebration.

In May of 1999, the City of Philip signed a Community Partnership Agreement with the DM&E. The railroad has an engine named "The City of Philip" - engine #3803, a GP-38 1969 model commissioned in July of 1993.
