The Caledonia Warriors met up against a very talented Minneapolis North Polars. Both similar in play-styles this was shaping up to be a chess-match type game guessing which play was going to work at a given time.
The Warriors also had some brotherly love shown, QB Noah King finding WR Eli King on a post route for a 42-yard strike. Eli King would follow that by scooping up a punt and sprinting 58 yards for a punt return touchdown. Noah King would find another WR in Cole Kronebusch for a score from about 20 yards out. The King brothers would connect again in the second half on an 11-yard curl route for the final score of the game to round the score at 26-0.
