Every high school football player fears losing, but they fear losing badly even more. Friday the 13th is a notoriously (facetiously) feared day. In week three of the 2013 football season, the two came together. It was either a very lucky night for six of the seven Fillmore County Journal covered teams, or a very unlucky night. Of five games on Friday the 13th of September, just one was score was competitive.

In Spring Valley, the Fillmore Central Falcons handed it to Kingsland. McKinnen Stone rocked his way to three first half TD’s (runs of 2 and 5, reception of 31), the first three FC scores. Bryce Whitehill (1-yard run) and Collin Bennett (31-yard FG, 3 PATs) also got in on the early scoring action. At the half, FC led 30-0. Tyson Ristau (44-yard run) and Monty Holm (48-yard fumble return) tacked on two early second half scores. FC built a 43-0 lead. The final was 46-13. Stone (15-131, 2 TDs rushing; TD receiving), Tom Henry (11-102 rushing), and Ristau (5-64, TD rushing) were a three-pronged Falcon running menace. Bennett connected on two FG’s (31, 36 yards, 4-6 PATs). For Kingsland, sophomore QB Quinn Larson (14-25, 259 yards, 2 TD’s passing) and junior WR Marcus Plaehn (6 receptions, 180 yards, 2 TDs) were the bright spots. The Falcons improved to 2-1 in the SFA Blue Division, Kingsland falls to 0-4.

In Lanesboro, Mabel-Canton came to town. After weeks one (Lanesboro over Houston on the final play) and two (M-C over Houston in the final ticks), one could’ve expected some more 9-man drama. Burro senior tailback Niko Anderson had other ideas. Number 28 turned out to be unlucky for the Cougars.

Anderson racked up 200-plus first half yards and four TD runs (25, 44, 1, and 31) in leading the Burros to a 27-6 intermission lead. M-C had a couple red zone chances in the third quarter, a couple opportunities to make it a game. They came up empty-handed. Anderson sealed things with 72-yard jaunt late in the 3rd quarter. Lanesboro prevailed 40-14. Save for a late Liam Dorn 1-yard run, Anderson (23-327 yards, 5 TD’s rushing) and Lucas Rogers (4 of 6 PATs) scored every Burro point. Garret Boggs (QB) chipped in 82 yards rushing on 12 carries. Hunter Johnson (21-179, 2 TDs rushing) and Donnie Lind (5-83 receiving) led the way for M-C. The Burros are 1-1 in the SEC, 2-1 overall. M-C fell to 1-1, 1-2 overall.

Chatfield continued its post-Caledonia-defeat steam rolling. T .....
