Lindahl had an off-night throwing the ball, completing only 9-of-30 passes for 149 yards, but his second touchdown run of the game sealed the third straight win for the Braves (4-2, 5-2).

Statistics were nearly even on both sides, but Montevideo -- which had its three-game winning streak snapped -- had three turnovers.

Benson's Jeff Berens found the end zone from 32 yards to open the scoring and Lindahl fired a 18-yard scoring strike to Jeff Ecklund that put Benson ahead 21-7.

Mitch Christensen scored on a 60-yard run and hauled in a seven-yard pass from Eric Brandon to ignite the Thunder Hawks (4-2, 5-2). Brandon also threw a 42-yard TD pass to Tom Grages.
