FC Football Section Runner-Up


Mon, Nov 2nd, 2015
Posted in All Sports

Fillmore Central (7-1) football entered the 2015 play-offs sporting its first ever #1 seed. The Falcons were the last of the county football teams left standing, but they came up just short of a state trip. After a quarterfinal bye, FC hosted Wabasha-Kellogg (4-5) in the semis. Falcons-South downed Falcons-North in the regular season 27-2. Nothing changed just twelve days later. W-K couldn’t get a handle on FC, particularly senior wide receiver Trace Tollefson. On the game’s second play, 6’2” 150-pound speedster caught a 49-yard bomb from Riley Means, putting FC in W-K territory. A Means 6-yard connection to Sam Rustad made it 7-0. FC’s second drive was just two plays; Brady Ristau 34-yard run, Tyson Ristau 36-yard TD run (14-0). After a B-Ristau forced fumble, it was another bomb to a wide-open Tollefson (65-yard TD). FC exploded to a 21-0 first quarter lead. B-Ristau then intercepted a W-K screen pass, returning it 71 yards to pay-dirt. At the half, FC led 28-0. Tollefson put the finishing touches on the scoring, catching a bubble-screen-right, reversing ground to the left, for a 74-yard TD catch. The FC non-starters preserved the shut-out by halting W-K in the final seconds. By a final of 35-0, FC moved on to its first football Section title game since 2005, its first under Head Coach Chris Mensink. Means (8-10, 248 yards, 3 TDs passing) and Tollefson (6-224, 2 TDs receiving) led the Falcon attack. The later had four 30-plus yard receptions and an interception on defense. T-Ristau led the FC ground game (13-70, TD rushing). B-Ristau was involved everywhere (3-42 rushing, 1-17 receiving, forced fumble, INT return TD). FC’s defense opposed 66 W-K offensive plays, yielding 224 yards (3.4 yards per play). Up until their final 70-yard drive, W-K ran 57 plays for 154 (2.7 yards per play). Marcus Meyer (11-67 rushing) and Ryan Wolfe (23-63 rushing) led their attack.

Fillmore Central’s section title foe, on the wings of a 21-20 win over R-P (See ‘Trojans Fall in Final Minute’), was Goodhue. The Falcons (1-seed, 8-1) beat the Wildcats (3-seed, 7-3) 12-9 in week three. A re-match wasn’t nearly as competitive. After a scoreless first, Goodhue took advantage of a back-wind in the second. A Jacob Pasch to Sam McNamara 34-yard TD strike opened the scoring. A 27-yard Mariano Bigalk field goal followed (9-0). Then, on the second to last play of the half (0:11), on 3rd and 13 from the FC 21, Pasch found a wide-open diving Rya .....
