Area football roundup from Friday

In football action from around our KAUS listening area from Friday night, the Blooming Prairie Awesome Blossoms, ranked No. 3 in the state in Class A were on the road at Goodhue to take on the always-tough Wildcats in a rematch of the last two Section 1A championship games, and after falling behind for the first time this season, the Blossoms rebounded to down the Wildcats 27-6 to remain unbeaten on the season.

The Wildcats struck first in the 1st quarter when Ryley Christianson hauled in a 10-yard touchdown pass from Sam Opsahl to give Goodhue a 6-0 lead after the point after attempt was missed.

That sccore marked the first time thus far this season where Blooming Prairie trailed, but the Blossoms battled back to take the lead, as it turned out, for good late in the first quarter when Karson Vigeland caught a 22-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Kaden Thomas to put Blooming Prairie ahead 7-6 after the extra point.  The Blossoms added another score late in the 2nd quarter as Thomas threw his second touchdown pass of the game, this one to Mitchell Fieberger for 43 yards to put Blooming Prairie ahead 14-6 at the half.

The second half saw the Blooming Prairie defense shut down Goodhue’s offense while Thomas threw two more touchdown passes, one to Alex Baldwin in the 3rd quarter for 30 yards and to Viegland again for 9 yards in the 4th quarter to give the Blossoms the win.

Thomas passing for the game was 16-22 for 190 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions.  Matthew Prior led the Blooming Prairie ground game by carrying the ball 19 times for 158 yards, and Vigeland led the Blossoms in receiving with four catches for 65 yards and two touchdowns, while Fieberger hauld in two passes for 61 yards and a touchdown.  Fieberger also led the very stout Blooming Prairie defense with 12 tackles, and Zach Weber picked off a pass for the 4-0 Blossoms, who are back into action at home Friday night against Randolph.

In other action, the Grand Meadow Superlarks were on the road at Lanesboro looking to bounce back from a Week 3 loss to LeRoy/Ostrander, and the Larks did just that by rolling by the Burros 49-24.

Grand Meadow led 49-0 after three quarters and put the game away early with 21 first quarter points.  Dusty Copley help to lead the Superlarks to the win with six carries for 128 yards and two touchdowns, plus one catch for 25 yards and a touchdown.  Nolan Skifter had seven carries for 43 yards and a touchdown, Luke Speer carried the ball twice for 19 yards and a score and Evan Oehlke toted the ball three times for six yards an a touchdown.

The Superlarks move to 3-1 on the season with the win, and they are back in action at home Friday night versus Cedar Mountain.

In LeRoy, the Cardinals of LeRoy/Ostrander were playing host to winless Mabel/Canton, and the third-ranked team in the state in Class 9-man cruised to a 61-22 win.

Sophomore quarterback Chase Johnson was razor sharp through the air, going 13-14 for 223 yards and three touchdowns, all to Riley Olson, who had a monster game receiving as he caught 10 passes for 183 yards and the three scores.  Johnson added 68 rushing yards and a touchdown, while Carter Johnson carried the ball seven times for 85 yards.  Isaac Collier added four carries for 62 yards and George Bird had two carries for 53 yards for the 4-0 Cardinals, who are back in action at home Friday night against a tough Southland Rebels squad, which is ranked No. 7 in the state in Class 9-man.

Speaking of the Rebels, they took a long road trip to Lamberton for a Saturday afternoon matchup with the Falcons of Red Rock Central, and it was Southland remaining unbeaten on the season with a 24-13 win.

In Hayfield Friday night, the Vikings played host to Wabasha/Kellogg, and it was the Vikings keeping the Falcons winless on the season with a 19-0 shutout win.

Quarterback Brady Nelson threw two touchdown passes, one to Patrick Towney of 41-yards in the first quarter to put the Vikings up 7-0, and another to Ethan Slaathaug in the 4th quarter for a 16-0 lead.  Kicker Ethan Koski accounted for the rest of the Vikings points in the game with field goals of 25 and 28 yards.

The Vikings move to 2-2 on the season and will travel to Winona State Friday night to take on the Ramblers of Winona Cotter, who are 0-4 on the season and have scored just once in four games thus far.

The Lyle/Pacelli Athletics played a home game at Art Hass Stadium Friday night versus the Houston Hurricanes, and it was the ‘Canes jumping out to a 40-0 lead at one point on their way to a 52-20 win.
