Football season ends at Mounds View

Forest Lake had some early chances to keep it close, and scored 21 points in the second half, but in between Mounds View dominated en route to a 42-21 Section 4AAAAAA playoff opener Friday night.

The seventh-seeded Rangers moved inside the Mounds View 15-yard-line on their first two drives, but one ended on a fourth-down stop and the other on an interception at the 1-yard-line.

The host Mustangs scored four touchdowns over the final 14 minutes of the first half and opened up a 35-0 lead at halftime.

Mounds View advances to face the winner of Cretin-Derham Hall and Woodbury, while Forest Lake finishes the season with a mark of 0-9.
