It was high-flying action as NRHEG’s Lonnie Wilson (3) leaps into the air to catch a ball in Friday night’s game against Maple River. The Eagles proved to be too powerful for NRHEG as they pounded the Panthers 40-7. Several Panther defenders move in on a Maple River ball carrier (1) in Friday night’s game.

Joining in on the action for the Panthers are Hunter Knutson (75), Branden Howieson (72) and Lonnie Wilson (9). Junior Nick Staloch (22) takes off with the ball in Friday’s game with several of his teammates blocking the opponents. Maple River crushed NRHEG 40-7, dropping the Panthers to 2-4 on the season.
