Indians secure No. 2 seed with 20-7 triumph over Red Lake County

The Mahnomen Indians secured the No. 2 seed in the Section 8-1A playoffs after a 20-7 victory at Red Lake County Central Wednesday.

The No. 2 Indians will host No. 7 Badger/Greenbush-Middle River (1-7) Tuesday at 7 p.m.

Mahnomen's Alex Lavoy ate up the Rebels' defense to the tune of 163 yards on 14 carries, for an 11.6 yards per carry average, as well as scoring two touchdowns and keying a drive with a 72-yard pass completion.

"Alex LaVoy came through with some big plays on offense," said Mahnomen head coach John Clark Jr. "He had a couple of long runs (53 yards being his longest) and a 72-yard swing pass."

The Rebels came within one scoring possession in the third quarter, when Scott Herberg finished off a drive with a one-yard plunge to pull his team to within 14-7.

But LaVoy quickly answered on Mahnomen's ensuing series with a 53-yard TD ramble, to allow the Indian defense to close out the game.

"Our defense was tremendous the entire night," Clark said. "We were led by linebacker Kyle Robinson, but overall it was a great team effort."

LaVoy cracked the scoreboard with a 51-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, while Dylan Stevens put Mahnomen up 14-0 with a 1-yard dive in the third.

Mahnomen out-paced RLCC offensively, 338 yards to 208.
