CHISHOLM— For a young team playing 11-man football for the first time, North Woods has made real progress, and it showed in their regular season finale as they topped Chisholm 26-8 here on Wednesday night.
The win improves the Grizzlies record to 3-5 as they head into the playoffs next week. And two of the team’s losses came in games that they otherwise dominated— which means with a break here or there, the Grizzlies could easily be 5-3 in their debut at the 11-man level.
The Grizzlies will host Carlton/Wrenshall on Tuesday in the opening round of the Section 7A tournament.
Stats and coach comment on Wednesday’s game was not immediately available. The Timberjay will post more details online as they become available and will have a full report in next week’s print edition.
