(WDAY Sports) - Monday night means it's time to salute the best from the weekend gridiron. We start in the huddle of Hillsboro, but the Burros finally met their match Saturday. Leading 20-8 against Hankinson in the 4th quarter, the Pirates staged a furious rally, scoring 21 points in the last six minutes; they'll play for their first state title since 1991 on Friday against Parshall.

Congrats to the Barnesville Trojans, they ended a 31 year state drought on Friday after beating Browerville in the 6-A final.

The Shanley uprising continued Saturday as the Deacons beat Dickinson Trinity. They're going to their first title game since 1983! They'll play Devils Lake Saturday.

And it's the same old same old over in Hawley as the Nuggets are heading back to state for the 5th straight year. Peder Naatz's guys will face Moose Lake on Thursday.
