Ridge Hunstad ran for two scores and had an interception to lead Pillager to a 28-6 Northwest White District win at New York Mills Friday night.
The Huskies got the victory despite having two touchdowns called back because of penalties.
Pillager opened the scoring on a six-yard run by Eli Horn with 4:43 left in the first quarter. Chris Ramsey ran in the two-point conversion.
The score remained 8-0 until Hunstad added his two touchdowns in the third quarter. Both scores came on two-yard runs.
Trailing 22-0 going into the fourth quarter, New York Mills got on the scoreboard with 4:55 left to play on a 19-yard pass from Aaron Arno to Brennan Maijala.
But Pillager answered on its next possession when Ramsey scored on a three-yard run.
The Eagles turned the ball over three times in the contest. Ramsey recovered a fumble in the first quarter, Hunstad had his interception late in the first half and Tyler Wilcox recovered a fumble in the third quarter.
"This was) a tough loss for us," said New York Mills head coach Matt Radniecki. "We did not play very well and we have to give credit to Pillager for making some big plays and some outstanding running from Hunstad and Ramsey.
"Pillager didn't do anything differently than what we expected, they just out performed us in every phase of the game. On defense, we couldn't make that big play or get consistent defensive play to stop their running game. On offense, we were not able to make the big play or sustain drives.
"We hurt ourselves with penalities and turnovers at critical times. (On) special teams we gave up a punt fake and also had a big return called back because of a penalty. We shot ourselves in the foot. We need to clean up the mistakes and find a way to get a win."
