Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Team Fire is taking home a trophy tonight.

The 2013 battle of the badges title now belongs to the Fargo Fire Department, after it beat Team Law by just 21 blood donations.

The four day blood drive wrapped up at the West Acres mall at 7 tonight.

Turnout was not as good as expected, but both law enforcement and fire fighters say it was well worth the friendly competition.

Joe Johnson- Fargo Police: "We're going to walk out of here with close to 700 donations that we didn't have before Tuesday. So, we're still winning. It's still a good thing."

Eric Eisenlohr- Fargo Fire: The real winners are the community, the city of Fargo and the recipients of the blood that people have donated.">

A total of 659 donations were given.
