“I think a lot of teams out there will be watching our film,” said Wyndmere-Lidgerwood junior quarterback Preston Bohnenstingl.

Finley-Sharon-Hope-Page may have beaten the Warbirds 38-20 Friday, but in the first three quarters W-L played dead even against the No. 3-ranked team.

“We held them to only an 18-point difference. That isn’t too bad,” Bohnenstingl said.

Warbird coach Scott Strenge said the Spartans simply wore his team down, finding some mismatches with W-L’s youth. “They played their hearts out,” he said.

F-S-H-P has one of the most explosive running backs in 9-man with senior Jack Ihry, who started finding holes in the Warbird defense in the third to score four of the Spartan’s five touchdowns.

In other Class B 9-man football, Tri-State went into halftime trailing LaMoure-Litchville-Marion 22-6. The Tigers adjusted their defense and pulled out a 26-24 victory to keep their playoff hopes alive.

“It was a nail biter,” said Tiger coach Fernando Reese.

Hankinson went into overtime against Enderlin-Maple Valley, but fell 26-24, giving the Pirates no chance at making playoffs.
