Mahnomen-Waubun 22 at Red Lake County 20

The Mahnomen Waubun Thunderbirds had to come from behind to stay undefeated with a 22-20 win over Red Lake County.  The Rebels offense struck first and then had a big defensive play returning a fumble for a touchdown to take an early 14-0 lead.  Mahnomen Waubun would get on the score board late in the 2nd quarter before the half to make it 14-6 with the Rebels leading at the half.  In the 2nd half the Thunderbirds would make some adjustments and after a defensive stand would drive down the field for a score and a 2 point conversion that would tie the game at 14.  Red Lake County would then put together a nice drive that would result in a touchdown but with a missed 2 point conversion the Rebels would lead 20-14 midway through the 4th quarter.  Mahnomen Waubun would then get good field position on the ensuing kickoff, and 7 plays later would find their way to the end zone to tie the game.  The Thunderbirds would convert the 2 point conversion to take the lead.  Red Lake County would have 1 more chance, but an incomplete pass on 4th down would seal the deal for Mahnomen Waubun keeping them undefeated at 5-0 while Red Lake County drops to 4-1.
