Area Football: Pillager pummels PR-B to advance


PILLAGER — It happened again.

Five Pine River-Backus Tigers’ turnovers helped send the top-seeded and sixth-ranked Pillager Huskies to the Section 6-1A championship game for the first time since 2002.

Pillager turned those five turnovers into 20 points leading to a 51-7 victory over the fifth-seeded Tigers Saturday.

Pillager forced a fumble on PR-B’s opening drive. Four plays later Jeff Flickinger scored on a 34-yard run.
