MINNEAPOLIS — Owatonna’s battering ball-control offense and stifling defense were too much for the Brainerd Warriors to overcome as the Huskies posted a 24-0 win in the Prep Bowl Class 5A state championship game Saturday night at the Metrodome.

No matter what happens in Saturday's Class 5A state championship game against unbeaten and top-ranked Owatonna, the Brainerd Warriors need to appreciate the moment and the playoff run that has culminated with the program's first trip to the Prep Bowl.
They have a 1,000-yard passer and a 1,000-yard rusher.
Two of their receivers have combined to score 15 touchdowns.
Their kicker has converted 7 of 9 field goals, including a 47-yarder.
Their offense averages 39.1 points a game.
After graduating their top nine players from a magical run to the state tournament, some people may expect the Brainerd Warriors to return to earth in 2013-14.
Warriors coach Scott Stanfield isn't one of them.
Quality left-handed pitching is at a premium at any level of baseball.
Brainerd's TJ Graumann happens to be a quality left-hander, a fact that didn't go unnoticed by Division I University of Nebraska-Omaha where Graumann has decided to pitch in 2014-15.
