Usually, topping ‘100’ in football means going over a hundred yards rushing or receiving. But 100 yards rushing for Lanesboro senior tailback Niko Anderson really isn’t a noteworthy accomplishment. He often does it in one half of a game. In LeRoy, on October 11th, Anderson topped a 100 of a different kind. With five rushing TD’s versus LeRoy-Ostrander, Anderson brought his career TD total to 103. Ninety-three have come on the ground, a state record. To put the feat into perspective, the top two career passing TD’s leaders are Luc Zellmer of Blooming Prairie (102; done from 2009-2011) and Chris Meidt of Minneota (101; done from 1984-1987). It’s unknown who holds the total TD mark (passing + rushing + receiving etc.). With 588 total yards, Lanesboro (5-1) cruised passed the 2-4 Cardinals 56-26. Anderson (27-276 yards, 5 TD’s rushing), Garret Boggs (11-71, TD rushing; 6-12, 119 yards, 2 TD’s passing), Kole Ruud (3-90, 2 TD’s receiving), and Liam Dorn (rushing TD) found the end zone. Jace Bunne (12-24, 176 yards, 3 TD’s, 2 INTs), Nate Bunne (6-66 rushing, TD; 8-78, TD receiving), and Sam Roe (2-91, 2 TD’s receiving) accounted for the L-O scoring. Courtesy of a Grand Meadow 12-7 win over Spring Grove, the Burros moved into a three-way tie (5-1, 6-1) atop the SEC with the Larks and Lions.

Neis Tops 1,000,

Gophers Win 7th Straight

The season opening match-up of Chatfield versus Caledonia was pretty much pegged by many as the SFA Blue Division title game. That’s how it played out. The #1 (in AA) Warriors got the 1-point win, and barring some kind of unseen debacle at Kingsland in week #8, will finish the regular season 8-0, as SFA Blue champs. The #8 (AA) Gophers, meanwhile, haven’t lost since week zero. Their season, per a bye in the final week, concluded in week #7 versus the Knights. Chatfield (6-1) topped Kingsland (0-7) 48-20. The score was 28-0 after one and 42-0 at halftime. The Goph’s opened with a 65-yard Nate Skare to Jayme LaPlante TD pass. Skare was 2-3 for 113 yards and the TD. Jake Neis had five carries for 120 yards and a TD in the first quarter/game. Those stats pushed his season totals to 136 carries for 1,075 yards and 19 TD’s (all rushing). The rest of his backfield mates, sophomore Carter Duxbury (7-106, 3 TD’s rushing), senior Alex Haffner (7-76, TD rushing), and junior Ryan Meeker (7-45, TD rushing) took it from there. For Kingsland, senior tailback Lenny Moore was ver .....
