The Minneota Vikings completed their regular season with a 7-1 record by beating Ortonville, 65-7 Wednesday night.
They earned the No. 2 spot in the section playoffs and will host Kerkhoven-Murdock Sunburg (7) at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
From the time Andrew Swedzinski took the opening kickoff 84 yards for a touchdown, to the final score, a seven-yard Swedzinski run, this was all Minneota.
Not only did the Vikings dominate the statistics, but Ortonville's play was riddled with penalties, fumbles and interceptions.
By the time it was over Swedzinski had three touchdowns, Brandon Anderson scored three times and Adam Josephson had a pair of touchdowns, one running and one receiving. Beau Buysse's two touchdown passes were to Josephson and Christian Skillings.
Ortonville ended the season 0-8 and will play at Dawson-Boyd to open the playoffs on Tuesday.
