NORTHWOOD, N.D. – MayPort-CG bounced back from its only loss of the season with a resounding 30-point win over Hatton-Northwood on Friday, Oct. 8.

Junior running back Ethan Bergstrom rushed for three touch-downs and passed for another to lead the Patriots to a 46-16 victory over the Thunder in the regular-season finale for both clubs.

The win clinched the No. 2 seed in Region 2 for MPCG heading into Saturday’s 9-man playoffs and allowed the Patriots to enter the postseason on a high note after a disappointing loss to Cavalier Oct. 1.

“You worry about the emotional side of things and whether you’re ready to play the next week after a loss like that in a big game,” MCPG head coach Adam Sola said.
