FARGO – In the battle of the two undefeated teams left standing in NDHSAA 9B football at Dakota Bowl XXIX, LaMoure-Litchville/Marion exited the FARGOMDOME victors.
The Loboes defeated Cavalier 42-14 on Friday, November 12 to win their first football state championship since 1991 when the program played in the NDHSAA’s Class B 11-man Division.
In 2021, The Loboes were dominant wire to wire, though they faced several challenges in the postseason.
In order to win the 2021 title they had to get through Cavalier, a team making their third straight appearance in the 9-man state championship game.
After a scoreless first quarter, the Loboes got a big kickstart by junior running back Brady Lettenmaier who scored on a 76-yard run 19 seconds into the second quarter.
Lettenmaier was a big part of the Loboes’ offense this season and Friday he provided 210 yards rushing for the cause.
Senior quarterback Corban Potts was a dual-threat for LaMoure-Litchville/Marion rushing for 49 yards and three touchdowns while also throwing for 154 yards and touchdown.
LaMoure-Litchville/Marion (12-0) led 20-8 at halftime. The Loboes posted 436 yards of total offense on Friday.
Cavalier senior quarterback Brysen Cleem led the way for the Tornadoes throwing for 149 yards and two touchdowns. Cavalier ends the season 11-1.
