PARKERS PRAIRIE - After being shut out against Pelican Rapids and Osakis in back-to-back weeks, the Parkers Prairie football team found a groove offensively in a 50-22 win over Underwood (0-6, 0-5 District (Midwest - Blue) on Friday.

“The way these guys responded after losing a tough game last week versus Osakis was great to see,” Parkers Prairie head coach Mike Johnson said. “We are looking forward to building off the success we had Friday night and keep getting better each week. Defensively, these guys have been playing tough all year. We were able to force three interceptions and get to the quarterback throughout the night. Underwood made some big plays offensively, but our defense was able to recover well and make some big stops down the stretch.”

The Panthers (2-4, 2-3 District (Midwest - Blue) scored on multiple big plays of 90-plus yards. They finished with 518 yards of total offense, 387 on the ground and 131 through the air.

“It was great to see the offense move the ball well throughout the game. The offensive line played great up front and made some really nice holes for our backs and provided time for our quarterback to throw the ball,” Johnson said. “We were able to get the run game going, so our play-action opened up for some big plays throughout the night. David Revering busted a 90-yard TD run, and Bennet Arceneau had a 92-yard touchdown reception. Cohen Noska had a nice night throwing the ball, running, and kicking extra points. Mason Boesl had a breakout game offensively, scoring three times on the night, he looked really good running the ball.”

Revering led the rushing attack for the Panthers with 13 rushes for 221 yards and two touchdowns. Mason Boesl added 152 yards on 12 rushes for three touchdowns.


Arceneau finished with 128 receiving yards and was on the receiving end of both Cohen Noska touchdown passes.

Friday’s win was the Panthers' first home win of the year. Parkers Prairie’s first win this season came on the road at Roseau, 36-14, on Sept. 15.

The Panthers hit the road to face New York Mills (5-1) at 7 p.m. on Oct. 14. New York Mills is the fifth-ranked team in the Class A QRF rankings on
