FARGO — Forced to relocate by the weather, the West Fargo Sheyenne football team felt right at home at Shanley High School Thursday.

Nathan Goldade and Barika Kpeenu each topped 100 yards rushing, and the Mustangs inched closer to their first ever Eastern Dakota Conference championship with a 44-12 win over Grand Forks Red River.

Moving to Shanley's turf field after a Wednesday snow storm made Sheyenne's grass surface unplayable, the Mustang run game proved too much for the Roughriders to handle. Goldade gained 126 yards and scored three touchdowns on 12 carries, while Kpeenu added 107 and a score on 13 carries.

Kpeenu also finished with a touchdown reception, one of two thrown by Mustang quarterback Parker Sander.

The 7-1 Mustangs are now 5-0 in the EDC and can clinch the East's top postseason seed with a win at Fargo South Wednesday.

South and Fargo Davies are both one game behind the Mustangs in the conference standings. The Eagle defeated the Bruins 33-14 Thursday
