LPA Football - Falcons swoop past Raiders
The Fertile-Beltrami ground game overcome visiting Lake Park-Audubon's aerial attack, as the Falcons downed the Raiders 28-22 Friday.
LP-A junior quarterback Mason Swegarden was 12-26 for 203 yards and two touchdowns, but it wasn't enough as the Falcons accumulated 264 yards on 55 rushes to hold possession and the eventual win.
Mitchell Mosher rushed for 123 yards on 26 carries and a touchdown, while Fertile-Beltrami teammate Gunnar Givold had two rushing scores and 67 yards on the ground.

Each of Jon Olson and Dylan Larson hauled in TD passes from Swegarden, while the former had six receptions for 119 yards.
