The Bulldogs would score one more time at the end of the 3rd quarter on Camden Horak’s second rushing touchdown of the ball game and lead 57-6.
The was no scoring in the 4th quarter as both teams would keep their opponents out of the end zone.
The Nex-tech Wireless Player of the Game is Ryan Parks as he would thread the needle for the only Minneapolis touchdown.
The H&R Block of the Game was Camden Robins for his efforts on some of the positive plays for the Lions.
