In the county’s most competitive contest, home Lanesboro stayed one step ahead of Madelia. The Burros never trailed, but had leads cut to four three times (10-6, 16-12, 22-18). The last came in the fourth quarter. Lanesboro then drove deep into Madelia territory, turning the ball over on downs. The Blackhawks were then forced to go-for-it on fourth down inside their own 20, and were turned away. Burro QB Carson Schwichtenberg’s second TD run of the fourth sealed the deal. Lanesboro prevailed 30-18. Schwichtenberg (14-99, 2 TDs rushing, 10-20, 86 yards, TD passing) accounted for three of the Burros four TDs. Brett Wangen (18-103, TD rushing) was the leading rusher. Caden Anderson caught a 7-yard TD pass. Lanesboro also recorded a safety. Connor Ruen was the busiest Burro (two FFs, sack, 111 return yards, 145 all-purpose yards).
