Hooked and Laddered

It wasn't necessarily an extremely important playin the football game. Given the end score, it wasn't necessarily of consequence period. It was the most memorable. It was perfectly executed. It definitely helped put one nail in Rushford-Peterson's coffin. Leading 14-0 (via two and six yard first quarter touchdown runs by Marcus Tucker and Zach Olstad respectively), Fillmore Central faced a 4th down and six from the R-P 26 with 32 seconds to go in the first half. Falcon coach Chris Mensink delved into his trickeration bag, pulling out; Andy Todd (pass) to split end Ryan Baker (lateral) to fullback Olstad, 25-yard hook-and-ladder touchdown. It gave the visiting Falcons a commanding 21-0 lead at the break. If that wasn't enough to demoralize the Trojans into submission, the first play of the second half did the trick. FC tailback Tyler Eickhoff broke free for a 73-yard touchdown run. The Falcons added a 14-yard Todd to Tanner Ristau touchdown strike. They also preserved the shutout victory by stopping the Trojans on a 4th quarter 1st and goal situation. The final was 34-0. Eickhoff (12-124, TD) and Olstad (16-90, 2 TDs) paced a Falcon ground game that chewed up 270 yards. R-P's lone bright spot was senior Chris Boemke who topped 100 yards rushing. FC moved its record to 2-0, R-P the opposite at 0-2.

Surreal

It's the best way to describe the 9-man match-up between #4 Lanesboro and #13 Spring Grove. It started just one play into the game. Spring Grove fumbled. Lanesboro took over, advanced to the 1-yard line, and returned the fumbling-favor. The Lions turned around and marched 99 yards in 20 plays for the games first score, an 11-yard Blaine Storlie to Sam Ellingson (on 4th down). The Burros seemingly answered. Niko Anderson broke free for a 49-yard touchdown jaunt, but the run was negated by a hold. The scored stayed 6-0 visitors until, with 1:51 left in the 1st half, Ellingson fielded a punt and returned it 53 yards for a score (14-0 SG). The Lions then promptly kicked the ensuing boot out of bounds twice in a row (times two and three in the game). Lanesboro began a small drive, but botched a second QB-FB exchange with 23 seconds left. Seconds later, Jake Kraus hauled in a Storlie pass for 53 and 6. The Lions, on high from getting two TD's in as many minutes, went into the half up 21-0. With their first second half possession, Kraus and SG again found the end zone, a 22-yard run (on 3rd and 14). With the score 28-0, the game was for all inten .....

Summer may still be in bloom, but all the spiking and setting in the gyms, cracking and crunching on the fields, make it abundantly clear autumn is on the horizon. With that naturally come fall sports, with the gals getting things started first.

For the Lanesboro boy's golf team, it was a give-and-take kind of season. They did so with non-conference rival Fillmore Central, finishing behind the Falcons twice early in the season, but besting them three times later in the season (handing them .....
