Johnson had five touchdowns and 224 yards on eight carries in D-G-F’s 53-12 demolishing of Warroad.

Kody Lefebvre/Bob Bjorge/Mahnomen defense

Mahnomen was on their third quarterback of the season, so the Indians needed their running attack to step up against Fosston. It did, as Lefebvre had 131 yards rushing and a TD, to go along with a 27-yard touchdown reception, and Bjorge had 119 yards rushing and a TD. Nothing new on defense for Mahnomen, as the Indians held Fosston to 27 total yards, all rushing, in the team’s fourth shutout of the season.

Michael Herzog/Jarett Nosal – Detroit Lakes

Herzog came up big in Detroit Lakes’ toughest test of the season in Week 6.

In a big game Detroit Lakes went to their big players, as Herzog ran for 180 yards on 23 carries and a touchdown and Nosal ran for 97 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries to lead Detroit Lakes over Park Rapids 14-7.

Ryan Bruggeman – Pelican Rapids

Bruggeman had touchdown runs of 70, 10 and 14 yards to lead Pelican Rapids over East Grand Forks 47-40.

Paul Berger – Wheaton-Herman-Norcross

Berger had 212 yards and three touchdowns on 14 carries in Wheaton-Herman-Norcross’ 44-6 win over Brandon-Evansville.

Breckenridge defense

No one has done to Hawley’s offense what Breckenridge did in Week 6. Hawley averaged over 40 points a game through its first five weeks.

It got the Nuggets a 5-0 record and a No. 3 ranking in the AP polls in Class 2A. Breckenridge held Hawley to six points and 183 total yards. The Cowboys more than doubled Hawley’s time of possession 15:04 to 32:56.
