There were three lead changes in the game between Lake Park-Audubon and Red Lake County Central Thursday inside the FargoDome, but the only one which mattered belonged to the Raiders.

LP-A staved off the Rebels 21-19 after the Raiders took the 21-19 lead on a 24-yard pass from quarterback Brian Gordon to Jesse Wixo on a fade with 3:36 left in the third quarter.

Wixo also caught a huge fourth and seven-yard pass from Gordon on a slant pattern which breathed new life into the Raider drive just two plays before.

But it was a couple of PAT stands by the Raiders which preserved the win.

The Raiders (6-1) blocked the extra point on RLC's second touchdown, and stuffed a two-point conversion on the Rebels' third score to secure the win.

Jon Nelson scored the first two Raider touchdowns in the second quarter on a pair of one-yard dives, the second coming on fourth and goal to put LP-A up 14-13.

Nelson finished with 83 yards on the ground, while Gordon was 5-10 with 78 yards through the air.

The Raiders will face undefeated Fosston Wednesday for the Northern Plains "A" Conference championship.
