They left dejected and wondering what happened. Austin came to play and totally controlled the game hitting 13 -3’s and defensively shutting down Owatonna. Owatonna’s fans tried to cheer their team on, but a full house of excited Austin fans had more to cheer about and easily kept the momentum on their side.
