East Grand Forks Senior High picked up a key road win Wednesday night, downing Pequot Lakes 32-29 in a Section 8AAA game.

The win improved Senior High to 5-3 and gives the Green Wave a likely home game in the section playoffs.

Senior High is expected to receive a first-round bye and would host a second-round game on Oct. 27.

"Our kids understood the importance of this game," said Senior High coach Ryan Kasowski. "We played pretty well in the first half. They made some good adjustments in the second half. Then we made some adjustments. We made few more plays than they did."

A Jacob Boushee interception helped lead the Wave to the game-winning touchdown, that coming on Ethan Trebil's 6-yard run with 2:40 left in the game.
