(KNSI) - The St. Cloud Tech Tigers defeated the Brainerd Warriors on Friday night on the KNSI Sports Network.
After Brainerd scored on a Sam Miller touchdown run, Troy Feddema's 8 yard touchdown run cut the Warriors lead to 1.
A Matt Schmitt interception gave the Tigers great field position. Tech took the ball down to the goal line and quarterback Nate Trewick punched it in on a 1 yard touchdown run.
The Warriors scored right before the half and the two teams went into the locker room tied at 14.
After a Brainerd missed a field goal attempt, Tigers running back Kedrik Osuorah broke loose on a 71 yard touchdown run to give the Tigers the lead.
Brainerd's drive stalled and the Tigers got the ball back. Facing 4th and 20 on the Brainerd 40 yard line, Tech Tigers head coach Jon Benson decided not to bring out punt team. Instead Nate Trewick found Sam Oster for a 40 yard touchdown reception.
Brainerd answered back on Sam Miller's 2nd touchdown run.
Tech put the game away on a 20 yard touchdown pass from Trewick to Oster. For his efforts, Sam Oster was named the All-Star Trophy and Awards Player of the Game.
Brainerd scored late on a Ben Staehling touchdown run but it wasn't enough as the Tigers came away with a 32-26 win.
The Tigers improve to 2-0 on the year. They take on Moorhead next Friday and you can hear that game live on the KNSI Sports Network.
