Through its first two games, Osakis football team has been completely dominant. After outscoring its first two opponents by 79 points, the Silverstreak’s sights are set on a Morris Area-Chokio-Alberta on Friday night.
The Tigers will be the first real test the Silverstreaks will face this season. They are 4-0 and are averaging over 41 points per game. On defense, MCA allows under 15 points per game, which includes the narrow 34-30 victory over Painesville (3-1) last Friday.
Osakis is coming off a 49-0 win over Long Prairie-Grey Eagle (1-3) last Friday. The Silverstreaks have put up 91 points of offense through two games.
Knights aim to snap two-game skid
The last two weeks have not been kind to the West Central Area-Ashby Knights. After a 40-8 loss to Breckenridge (4-0), WCA-A fell to Barnesville (4-0) 41-0.
The Knights started 3-0, but to have a winning regular season, they will have to beat traditional Section 6AA power Pillager (2-2). The Huskies are coming off a 30-6 win over Crookston (1-2), who the Knights beat 24-6 in week two. Pillager is putting up an average of 31.5 points per game while allowing under 10.
WCA-A’s offense has been stagnant in recent weeks but can put up more significant numbers. Through the first three weeks of the season, the Knights outscored opponents 94-24. WCA-A hits the road for a 6 p.m. start this Friday.
Minnewaska hosts Sauk Centre
After getting its first win of the season two weeks ago, the Minnewaska football team suffered a hard-fought 14-6 loss to Pierz (4-0) last Friday. Now, they will look to move closer to .500 against Sauk Centre (1-3).
The Lakers are 1-3 on the season but have struggled to score. They are averaging 10 points per game but could take advantage of a Mainstreeter defense that’s prone to giving up big totals. Sauk Centre gives up 26.5 points per game while only scoring 13.5. They are coming off a 40-21 loss at Melrose last Friday.
Where Minnewaska has an edge is on the defensive side of the ball. After giving up 42 points to MCA in week one, the Lakers are allowing under nine points per game.
Parkers eye 2-1 start
Parkers Prairie is only playing its third game of the season but has a chance to go 2-1 against Browerville-Eagle Valley (3-1) on Friday at home.
BEV’s offense has been excellent so far in scoring 35.5 points per game. However, the defense has quietly given up 29 points on average. The Tigers are coming off a 45-6 loss to Benson (3-1) last week.
Meanwhile, the Panthers are fresh off a 20-14 win over Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa (0-4). After suffering a season-opening 20-16 loss to Long Prairie-Grey Eagle (1-3), the Panthers put up 20-points to move back to .500.
