GLENWOOD -- Senior Jordan Hendricks threw three touchdown passes, including the game-winner, to help Minnewaska rally to edge Melrose 22-21 in the West Central North Conference Monday night. Lightning on Friday forced the game to be moved to Monday. After Seth Gieske ran for his third touchdown of the game to give Melrose (0-2, 0-3) a 21-14 lead, the Lakers (1-1, 2-1) answered right back. Junior tailback Wyatt Paumen hauled in a screen pass from Hendricks and broke through the Dutchmen defense to scamper down the left side of the field and score with 1:40 remaining in the game.
