Football: Indians hold LP-A scoreless

Mahnomen 30   Lake Park-Audubon 0

It was more hard core defensive dished out by the Mahnomen Indians, which came with the same result, just a different opponent.

The Class 1A No. 1 ranked Mahnomen (7-0) recorded its fifth shutout of the season with a 30-0 win over visiting Lake Park-Audubon Friday.                

The usually-potent Raider rushing attack was minimized to almost nil, as the Indians stuffed LP-A to 29 yards on 28 rushes.

Mahnomen outgained LP-A 402 yards to 78, as Kody Levebvre led the way with 143 yards on 10 carries, while Bob Bjorge went for 11 on 17 attempts. Austin Reitan nearly broke a 100 with 90 rushing yards.

“We played excellent defense again,” said Mahnomen head coach John Clark Jr. “I thought our pass rush was tremendous all night. They have a very good passing game, but we really didn’t give them time to throw.”

Kal Handyside, Kurt Francis, Levi Liebl and Anthony Sanchez each applied heavy pressure on senior LP-A quarterback Mason Swegarden. The Indians will close out the regular season by hosting Fertile-Beltrami (4-3) Wednesday.

The Raiders (4-3) will host Red Lake (0-7) Wednesday, as well.
