After Friday night there are no undefeated teams left in Region 1 9-man football since Wyndmere-Lidgerwood fell 26-14 to LaMoure-Litchville-Marion 26-14.
With playmaker Luis Vasquez out with an injury, the Warbirds relied heavily on bringing back their star Jeff Illies after he was also out with an injury. The senior had a 19-yard touchdown run in the second quarter to come as close at 8-6. W-L trailed the entire night thanks to rushing touchdowns from Jared Meiklejohn and Brady Thiegles as the Lobos were ahead 16-6 at halftime.
Junior running back Ryan Honl fueled W-L’s hopes up a comeback with a 49-yard fourth quarter touchdown run but a LLM safety firmly put the game away.
The Warbirds face Strasberg-Zeeland this Friday for their Homecoming game.
