Not even the best offensive production in 19 years was enough to lead the Park Rapids football team past Crookston in an offensive shootout Friday night at Vern Weekley Field.


The Panthers' offensive numbers were impressive: 101 plays, 31 first downs, 579 yards and six touchdowns. The 101 plays broke the school record of 79 against Frazee in 1975 and the 31 first downs broke the school record of 26 against Detroit Lakes in 1977.
