Sauk Centre took a 14-10 lead into halftime and opened the second half driving into Benson territory. But penalties hurt the Mainstreeters and the Braves took advantage.

Joe Orr completed a 31-yard pass to Daniel Martin on a first-and-20 play to put the ball on the Sauk Centre 5-yard line and Lindahl then pushed his way into the end zone on the next play to put Benson ahead with just over three minutes left in the third quarter.

Lindahl completed 15 of 34 pass attempts for 199 yards while Jeff Berens paced the Braves' ground attack by gaining 88 yards on just six carries.
