It’s championship time for a pair of area high school football teams.

Triton (12-0) and Rushford-Peterson (12-1) will play for state championships in their respective classes on Friday at the Metrodome.

Fourth-ranked Rushford-Peterson will face unranked New Ulm Cathedral (11-2) in the Class A state title game at 10:45 a.m. Second-ranked Triton will face unranked Luverne (11-3) at 6:30 p.m.


This is the 26th year of the Prep Bow, in which the state finals are played at the Metrodome.

"At the beginning of the year our goal was winning a state title," Triton running back Caleb Rissman said.

Now Triton and R-P are just a single win away.

"What’s been really fun and exciting this year is what a great group of guys this is," Triton coach Don Henderson said. "They always come to practice ready to learn. And we have a great (coaching) staff."

The Cobras won a state title back in 2000. Rushford-Peterson has won Class A crowns in 2002 and 2004.

"It’s always been a dream for us seniors," R-P lineman Matt Ulrich said. "It’s great to be in this game."
