The first full week of high school football competition was just that, at least for the four county squads facing off against each other. In Rushford, Fillmore Central took on the Trojans. The game came down to the final thirty seconds. On the 9-man scene, and just down the road in Houston, Lanesboro hooked up with the ‘Canes. The game came down to the final three seconds.

At the onset of the 9-man (non-conference) opener, it didn’t look like it’d come down to the very end. Lanesboro built a 21-0 early second quarter lead. Senior RB Gabe Decker started the scoring with a 73-yard sprint. The Burros took advantage of a pair of Christian Sires interceptions to post their other two scores, a 47-yard Garret Boggs to Niko Anderson pass, and a 32-yard Anderson run. Sires got the ‘Canes on the board with a 2-yard TD run in the second quarter. A couple series’ later, Sires went for 20 yards, and then finished things off from a yard out, getting Houston back into the game at 21-14. To end the first half scoring, Boggs found Decker from 7-yards away. At halftime, Lanesboro led 29-14.

Early in the second half, Sires’ third rushing TD (18 yards) again moved Houston close (29-21), but Lanesboro immediately replied. Niko’s third TD of the game (48-yard run) put the Burros ahead 36-21. Early in the fourth, Houston got a 52-yard Dylan Lee TD run, but they failed to convert the PAT, keeping it a two-possession game at 36-27. With just over 2-minutes to go, the score remained the same and the Burros seemed on the brink of victory, but things were about to get wild. Sires notched his fourth rushing TD (4 yards) of the game with 0:44 left, making the score (after PAT) 36-34. The ‘Canes on-sided and recovered, only to suffer an 11-yard sack on their very first play. Sires then found Lee deep on the next play, and after a scrum and a ball handler change, the play netted 43 total yards to the Burro 15! Suddenly, with ten ticks left, Houston was looking for the win. After a Sires 5-yard run, it all came down to three seconds and one play. Sires dropped to pass, was flushed left, thru across his body only to be intercepted in the end zone by Boggs, thus putting a crazy cap to a crazy 9-man affair.

After racking up 271 firsthalf yards, Lanesboro had just 61 in the second. They went three-and-out on five of six possessions. Meanwhile, Houston racked up 363 secondhalf yards including 14 first dow .....
