However, after scoring on its first two possessions, the Braves would not score again as Browerville-EV rallied from early deficits of 7-0 and 14-6 to beat Benson in a Mid-State Blue division game, Friday night, 36-14.

The loss lowered the Braves’ overall record to 0-4, while Browerville-EV improved to 3-1 overall. 

“You couldn’t script a better start to the game offensively,” coach Adam Foslien said.  “Our first two drives resulted in touchdowns and we got the momentum early.  We continued to move the football the rest of the game, but we just missed on some other big scoring chances (including a fumble) that could’ve have had a big impact on the result.”

Upsala-Swanville Area, which beat the KMS Saints Friday, 22-6, leads the sub-district with a 3-0 record, while KMS, LPGE, Browerville-EV, and Parkers Prairie are all 2-1, Royalton is 1-2, and Benson and BBE are both 0-3.
