Mahnomen, MN (WDAY TV) - When the Mahnomen football takes to the Metrodome field on Saturday morning, they're hoping to put the perfect capper on three dominant years of football.
The Indians have won 27 straight games; the last time they lost was in 2011 in the Class A title game to Dawson-Boyd, the same team they'll play for the title this year.
It's been a dominant season for the Indians who have outscored opponents 592-44 and are ready to dish out payback.
John Clark, Jr. Mahnomen Head Coach: “I probably remember more about that game than anyone since. We still have it on film, so we've been back and looked at it too many times. I know we made some mistakes and we turned the ball over a little bit. They won all the key plays in that game. I think that will be important in this game. We have to win those third down situations and make sure we're making the play when we get a chance.”
Austin Reitan/Mahnomen Sr. Fullback: “We're looking for a little bit of redemption. All we can do is respect them and get better. Hopefully, we come home with a win.”
It's a 10 am kickoff Saturday for Mahnomen, we'll have more on the Indians dominant running game at 10, and we'll be in Minneapolis this weekend to cover the Indians and Underwood, who plays in the 9-man championship.
