Led by sophomore quarterback Andrew Johnson, the Central Lakes College Raiders' offense was facing a wet field and a 20-point deficit in a key Southern Division matchup against Minnesota West on Saturday afternoon.
BARROWS - Cody Hahn and Scotty Thiel claimed victories in the two-day Mighty Axe Nationals races at North Central Speedway over Labor Day weekend.
Hahn raced past Chris Graf and Lou Kennedy Jr. to take first place in the 25-lap event Saturday night.
Some of the faces were different, but the effort and the outcome was the same as the Central Lakes College Raiders extended their winning streak to 11 with a 34-6 season-opening win over Fond du Lac Saturday in Brainerd.
Aug. 23, 2012, seems like a long time ago.
On that night, the Central Lakes College Raiders lost their opening game to Northland 30-28 on a last-second field goal. They also lost Taz Seibert, their top running back, to injury in the game.
On Oct. 27, 2012, the Northern Division champion Central Lakes College Raiders, with a record of 13-1, faced Northland as their only barricade in the way of a return to the NJCAA Division III national tournament.
