Aaron Zosel (34) barrels over a couple of Osakis defenders on the way to a big gain Friday night.  Providing blocks for the Braves are Kaden Schmidt (74), Shane Flower (51), Riley Grube (56), and Matt Tolifson (2).

Osakis scored four first-half touchdowns on the way to a 27-6 victory over Benson, Friday night in Osakis.  The Silverstreaks improved to 2-1 overall and 1-1 in the Mid State sub-district white, while the Braves fell to 0-3 overall and 0-2 in league play.
 

After Osakis scored on its first drive, going 61 yards in nine plays, the Braves also scored on their first drive of the night to tie up the game at 6-6 with 2:36 left in the first quarter, but that would be it for the Benson offense, which was held to 208 total yards on 46 offensive plays.
 

“Osakis made a lot of mental mistakes on its first drive with several penalties, but we were unable to take advantage and get our defense off the field,” coach Scott Gonnerman said.  “They completed a long pass during the drive and were able to convert on a fourth-and-short situation to keep the drive alive before eventually scoring.”
 

This week, the Braves go after win No. 1 of the season....
