Forgive the players if the season football opener looked more like a scrimmage than a game.

The season started a week early.

Because of scheduling conflicts for the state playoffs, the NRHEG Panthers opened the 2015 campaign Saturday and survived a sloppy game against an unfamiliar opponent, winning 14-7 at Mayer Lutheran, which is west of the Twin Cities.

“We played as expected after only two weeks of practice,” said NRHEG head coach Dan Stork.

But the bottom line was the win, and the Panthers were pleased in their first season of district play. The Panthers hope for an easier time this Friday when they host Lester Prairie/Holy Trinity.

Off-and-on rain did not help matters Saturday as the teams combined for seven turnovers, five by the Crusaders.
