The Madison Bulldog Football team saw their season come to a close on Friday night, losing to Tea Area in the 11A Semifinals 37-14. Using a strong wind at their back, the host Titans scored 17 first quarter points. Madison would answer with a pair of early touchdowns in the second quarter through the air as Nate Ricke found both Carter Bergheim as well as Logan Albee. Tea Area would score a late touchdown in the first half and led 24-14 at the break.

A signature drive started the second half, as Tea held the ball for the whole third quarter and scored on the first play of the fourth. They would then add a late touchdown for the 37-14 win. The Titans ran 71 offensive plays to Madison’s 32 and out rushed the Bulldogs 358 to 2. Madison finished the season at 6-5 and oddly enough in all five of their losses, they only scored 14 points in each. Tea Area will take on Canton next Saturday afternoon in the 11A title game at the Dakota Dome.
