The Devils Lake football team (3-0) won their third game of the season when they traveled to Belcourt to battle the Braves (1-2) on Friday, Sept. 8. Both teams played a close first half with Devils Lake gaining momentum going into halftime.

“We faced a tough team in Turtle Mountain and they came ready to play when they jumped out to a 12-6 lead,” DL Head Coach Jake Wateland said. “We scored right before halftime to go up 14-12. We played well after that and got our run game going and the defense found a way to get off the field.”

With the slow start for the Firebirds, Coach Wateland was glad to have his team continue to work and finish the game strong. “I was happy we finished the game and played well in the second half but we need to put four quarters together to be one of the top teams in AA.”
