Email News Alerts

The second and third stringers for the Mahnomen Indians became first-stringers, as the Class 1A No. 1 ranked team plowed through No. 8 seeded Red Lake 44-0 Tuesday in the opening round of the Section 8-1A playoffs.


The Indians' starters played just the first two series of the game, built a 14-0 lead, then handed it off to their younger teammates for the rest of the evening.

The substitutes faired just as well, as the Indians led 32-0 by the end of the first quarter.
