FROM COACH HALVORSON
“We won the District 9 North White Championship and celebrated with everyone after the game on parents’ and senior night. The defense played great again and came up with big stops and turnovers at critical times. Carlton/Wrenshall was very strong in the middle on defense so we had to pass and use our outside game more. Some late game injuries made us use a wildcat offense for a while and finished strong for the win.”

FROM COACH HALVORSON
“Again, the defense held at the right time and created lots of turnovers. We had a hard time moving the ball with good field position most of the time. A punt block and interception led to our two scores. Injuries during the game and from the previous game caused some players to have limited play or play not at their best but we came out with the win on a very cold day.”
