The Warriors (9-0) held the Lakers to three-and-out on their next possession and returned the Minnewaska punt to the 12-yard line. Quarterback Tyler Rock ended the drive by punching through to the end zone for a 1-yard score, and the Warriors took a commanding 21-7 lead going into the second half.

Jake Amundson gave the Lakers (6-4) an early lead, pulling in a 20-yard first-quarter pass from Austin Ostrander. Chaz Roush tied it up with a 3-yard run, and the game remained 7-7 until Steffel's interception with 3:33 left in the first half.

Roush scored two more times and Seehusen once more in the second half. The pair combined for 266 of the Warriors' 296 total rushing yards.

BOLD will open the state tournament against the winner of Section 6AA champion Holdingford at 7 p.m. Thursday at St. Cloud.
