In an awesome display of offensive firepower, the Friday, Sept. 23, West Central North match-up between Montevideo and Albany nearly produced several new state record holders.

Thunderhawks quarterback Brett Bergeson and wide receiver Colton Vien each earned spots among the state's all-time leaders with monster performances in Montevideo's 56-49 victory over the Huskies in Albany.
Bergeson went 24-for-40 on the night, throwing for 502 yards, seven touchdowns and no interceptions, according to Montevideo coach David Vik.

Vien's four touchdowns tied him for second on the state's all-time list for most touchdowns in a game.
