Carroll Saints Honor Cancer Victims Before Game, Praise Players After

The Carroll College Saints teamed up with "Go for the Gold" to recognize current Helena students and Carroll graduates who had their cancer return. They released balloons into the air with each color representing a different patient and cancer. Orange was for Leukemia, lime green was for Lymphoma and gold was for the "angels" and survivors of childhood cancer.

The founder of "Go for the Gold," Cynthia Thornquist, said,  "the reason I wanted to honor these children and Luke Den Herder today is that I just want to keep people aware that childhood cancer affects us and affects us all here in Helena very closely. And so it's important for us to remember not just in September when go for the gold is out and about at the game…but often. That we have these people who are dealing with this terrible disease."

Additionally, following the game, two Saints were honored as players of the game. 

Senior quarterback Dakota Stonehouse received offensive player of the game and junior Sean Blomquist was named the defensive player of the game.


Stonehouse finished with 164 yards passing for 2 touchdowns and added 2 more TDs himself on the ground. Blomquist recorded 14 tackles, three for loss, two sacks and a key fumble recovery that sealed the victory.  Both players were humbled and gave credit to their teammates for the recognition.

"It means one thing. I got the best teammates in the nation. I couldn't do it without them. Credit goes to all my teammates….blocking, catching balls and Rinker running. It's an award….I just have the best teammates," said Stonehouse.

Sean Blomquist said, "it's a team award to me. The guys in front of me. The D-Line - they're just so outstanding. They're so awesome. Condon, Decker, Grauppman, Deck. They do good things and just make my life easy."

The Saints won 38-28 over Georgetown and advance to the quarterfinals.
