Full stats were not available for the game at presstime.

Bagley’s game postponed
The inclement weather on Saturday hampered a few teams on Saturday, forcing scheduling changes around the state.
But in northwestern Minnesota, nasty thunderstorms put some fields underwater and forcing postponements.
Bagley’s game at Badger/Greenbush-Middle River was one such game.
The Flyers were scheduled to open the season with the Gators at 7 p.m. Saturday but instead the game will now be played at 6 p.m. Monday in Badger.
