ROSHOLT, S.D. – MayPort-CG didn’t have to go to great lengths to beat the Tri-State Tigers and remain undefeated three weeks into their season.
But the Patriots did have to leave North Dakota to run their record to 3-0.
Unable to play on a water-logged field in Fairmount, N.D., MPCG and Tri-State crossed into South Dakota to face off in Rosholt (population 424), where the Patriots beat the Tigers 60-18 on Sept. 3.
MPCG bolted out to a 22-0 lead early in the nonconference showdown thanks to junior tailback Ethan Bergstrom, who scored four rushing touchdowns and added another on defense.
