The Tigers (7-0) and BOLD (7-0) are locked at the top of the West Central Conference. Morris/CA is home to Yellow Medicine East while the Warriors will host Benson in the Wednesday night finales.

The teams did not cross paths this fall with the new West Central 10-team confederation which replaced the North and South divisions.

The Eagles scored first on their high school field, almost equidistant from Milan, Madison and Appleton. J.D. Struxness, a rodeo star in the summer, took a pass from Dylan Erickson for a 35-yard touchdown.

But Holland followed with a five-yard burst to tie the score (after Noah Grove's kick).

Four more TDs followed, including scoring jaunts by Holland (11 yards), Tanner Piecht (8 yards) and Aaron Nelson from 33 out.

The Tigers defense checked the Eagles rushing offense holding it to 58 yards in 34 snaps.

Struxness had 14 tackles for the LQPV defense.
