A Basketball Score

But it was R-P that couldn’t chase down Chatfield. The Gophers downed the Trojans 24-7. Photo by Paul Trende

Lanesboro head football coach James Semmen was worried about the amount of points his Burros have been putting up on Friday nights. He was worried about the tempo they’d been playing with. He was worried they weren’t making enough big plays. So he consulted Lanesboro boys basketball coach John Smith about scoring points, playing a faster paced game, and scoring more from long distance. Smith, whose Burro basketball teams have in recent history bombarded the rim from three-point range, and put up big offensive numbers, obliged. Smith, the Dean of Students at Lanesboro schools, shared with Semmen, the Elementary principal, the ‘secret’ (all of that is a facetious). The Burros, on homecoming night, hosted Lyle/Pacelli and went basketball-score on the Athletics.

The quarterly breakdown looked like a hoops contest (albeit now there are just halves on the hard-court). The Burros put up 27 points in the first. Naturally, Niko Anderson grabbed three of those TD’s. He had a 15-yard run, and two punt return TD’s (64 and 66 yards) in the same quarter, which likely sets or ties a record somewhere. Garret Boggs (the point guard) and Kole Ruud (the shooting guard), a couple guys well-versed in Lanesboro’s high scoring basketball mentality, notched the other TD (a 32-yard pass play). In the second quarter, the Burros racked up four more TD’s, 25 more points. Anderson added his 4th and 5th TD’s on runs of 33 and 45. Boggs and Ruud put the other two scores on the board. Boggs found the hizzie on an 11-yard run. He then hit Ruud for a second time from 35-yards out. At halftime, it was a nailbiter; Lanesboro 52, Lyle/Pacelli 0.

The scoring subsided somewhat in the second stanza. Lanesboro played their subs but nearly everyone still got in on the action. The Burros scored three more third quarter TD’s. Junior Tylar Miller returned the opening kickoff 82-yards to paydirt. Gabe Decker scored on an 8-yard run a few minutes later. Miller than closed the quarterly scoring with a 9-yard run of his own. Lanesboro tacked on two more TD’s in the 4th quarter, the first career scores for the sophomore Cade Peterson and the freshman Cole Schwichtenberg. Peterson’s was a 9-yard run, Schwichtenberg’s an 83-yard kick return. The former completed the orange and black’s ‘routine’ 77-unanswered-points to start the game. Lucas Rogers added a trio of PAT’s and a two-point pass as conversions in all that scoring. Lyle/Pacelli won .....

By Paul Trende The Mabel-Canton offense wasn’t ripping off yardage. In their SEC 9-man opener versus Houston, the Cougar philosophy throughout was a grinding ‘three yards and a cloud of dust’ ground game. Forty-seven running plays into the c .....
