Otters earn home field advantage

Published 12:07pm Thursday, October 17, 2013

Despite its loss Wednesday night on the road against the Alexandria Cardinals, the Fergus Falls football team earned the fourth seed in the Section 8AAAA playoff.

With the fourth seed, the Otters have home field advantage in its first game against the fifth seeded Albany Huskies.

The teams will meet at 7 p.m. on Tuesday night at the Kennedy Secondary School football field.

The Otter finished the season 3-5 with wins over Rocori, Sauk Rapids-Rice and Grand Rapids.

Despite the losing record, the Otters’ tough conference schedule helped it earn a favorable QRF score, which determines the seeding.

Detroit Lakes, who finished the year 7-1, took the top seed in the section.

The winner of Tuesday’s game between Fergus Falls and Albany will take on the Lakers the following Saturday in Detroit Lakes.
