Deja Vu?

Last year, Lanesboro made it all the way to the 9-man football state title game. The run wasn't without a couple early season bumps though. One came against Mabel-Canton in the season opener. To begin the 2011 season, history seemed poised to repeat itself. The Cougars, through three quarters, were the only team on the scoreboard. Gabe Lind's 50-plus-yard gallop, and subsequent 5-yard touchdown run (in the second quarter), had been the best offensive strikes in a 7-0 slugfest. But the Burros kept punching, getting a 1-yard score from their biggest hitter, 250-pound fullback Brandon Hongerholt, early in the 4th quarter. QB Garret Boggs subsequently hit Cory Strom for a two-point conversion and the visitors led 8-7. The Cougars fumbled (their third) on their next possession, and Lanesboro took advantage (albeit, not without a little tension). With the down fourth and the distance goal-to-go, Boggs was nearly sacked in the backfield, but somehow managed to avoid two would-be-tacklers, out-race two other pursuers, and find himself on the business end of a pivotal 8-yard TD scamper. It gave Lanesboro a 14-7 lead. The Cougars had one chance, and then two. The first went by in a flash; four plays and out. Then came a gift fumble. However, with a minute to go, a 64-yard drive would've been asking a lot, particularly from a squad with one pass completion up until that point. Lanesboro held and prevented a repeat of 2010. Lind finished as M-C's horse, (unofficially) racking up in the neighborhood of 90 yards. Sophomore Niko Anderson propelled the Burros, accumulating over 100-yards total offense (around 90 rushing, 32 receiving).

The Beginning of Something Skare?

A sophomore starting at quarterback is usually an uncertain deal. The future is definitely bright, but how many lumps will there be along the way? After one game, there were no lumps for Chatfield signal caller Nate Skare, just 7-9 passing for 180 yards, 4 touchdowns, and a huge part in leading his team to an emphatic 41-8 victory over St. Charles. Amazingly, Skare might not have been the Gophers biggest star. Senior tailback Jake Peterson did his best Marshall Faulk-circa-2000 impression. Peterson ran for two touchdowns in the first quarter, and then caught second and third quarter paydirt strikes, racking up over 100 yards total offense. Justin Viss chipped in, leading the team in rushing with 87 yards. Jesse Julian (58 yards) and Jake Neis (34 yards) hauled in Chatfield .....

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.
