Lately, if there is an R-P player scoring a trio of TD’s, his initials are N.C. But in a roller-coaster contest with W-K (1-1), Trojan J.P. was all over keeping 6th-ranked R-P unblemished. Junior TE/LB Jake Paulson intercepted W-K’s first play. The Trojans first offensive play saw sophomore QB Landon Skalet find Paulson for a 15-yard TD reception. With 2-point run, it was 8-0. R-P’s next series ended with the Skalet-Paulson connection golden from 46 yards out (14-0). W-K then fumbled (Paulson recovery). Noah Carlson (39-yard run) set himself up (5-yard TD run) to make it 20-0 after a one. But the Falcons are improved. They gave Goodhue a run (27-13) in week two. They owned the second quarter. A 13-play drive was capped by a Cooper Holtorf to Jackson Gosse 15-yard TD pass (20-6). An R-P fumble allowed for a 13-yard drive, a Trevor Timm 9-yard TD run, a 20-14 score. Late in the quarter, Holtorf went 95-yards to pay-dirt. W-K led 21-20 at the half. R-P rallied with their first drive in the third. Skalet to Paulson (41 yards) set up Skalet to Paulson TD #3 (7 yards). R-P went ahead 26-21. In the fourth, a pair of W-K drives were turned away per interceptions (Lukas Rasmussen/Paulson). Paulson, deep in Falcon territory, set up a game-clinching Carlson 3-yard TD run. The Trojans prevailed 32-21. Paulson (6-131, 3 TDs receiving; two INTs, FR) was everywhere, Skalet’s (10-18, 189 yards, 3 TDs, INT passing) main man. Carlson (25-174, 2 TDs rushing, 39-yard reception) went over 170 for a third straight week. Dawson Dahl (13-62 rushing) helped. The three interceptions gives R-P eight over the past two weeks. Holtorf (22-184, TD rushing, 6-10, 81 yards, TD, 2 INTs passing) led the Falcon attack. The Trojans (2-0, 3-0) are tied with L-A (2-0, 3-0) atop the MSE-East.

FG Propels FC

Past #3 G-Hue

Last year, FC football moved to 3-0 by beating Goodhue 12-9 because of a fourth quarter Justin Ristau 29-yard field goal. In a re-match of that game, and last year’s Section 1A championship, ‘Gus’’ leg again proved pivotal. Goodhue nearly scored on its first drive. They dropped a TD pass on fourth and goal. FC took advantage of a high Wildcat punt snap to get points. Recovered by Charlie Jones and taken to the Goodhue three, it set up a Nate Haugerud 1-yard TD run (7-0). Three plays later, Jack Gadient hit Ryan Schoenfelder for a 24-yard .....
