Only one county team didn’t play at home. Defending section champion Rushford-Peterson got two TDs from five different guys in handling Kingsland 58-0 in Spring Valley. Jake Paulson made plays in all three phases (4 receptions, 102 yards, 2 TDs, 90 return yards, sack) to lead the way. He and Landon Skalet (8-17, 148 yards, 2 TDs passing) continued their connectivity. Ethan Sense (20-91, 2 TDs rushing) was the workhorse while Dawson Dahl (4-50, 2 TDs rushing) made the most of his carries. Sophomore Triton Meldahl (9-130, 2 TDs rushing) came in late and authored the game’s longest play, an 84-yard TD run. Ethan Hermanson added a TD run while Ben Wieser had a pair of fumble recoveries. Kingsland didn’t get a first down until the fourth. An Ethan Fenske 55-yard pass to Braydn Willford was their biggest play. A fumble in the red zone ended the Knights’ best scoring threat.
