Week 6: Tigers put up a fight in Northfield

The Farmington football team gave Missota Conference-leading Northfield all it could handle in a 21-16 loss Friday night in Northfield.

The Tigers (1-5) trailed 14-0 after a quarter, but rallied to tie the game by halftime thanks to a pair of touchdown passes from sophomore quarterback Darren Beenken to Dayne Eich and Nathan Graham.

Northfield took the lead on a touchdown with four minutes to go. The Tigers scored again on a snap out of the back of the end zone for a safety late in the fourth quarter, but came up short in their final drive in the closing minute.
