Rushford-Peterson 41, Hayfield 6

RUSHFORD — Rushford-Peterson bounced back from just its second loss of the season in a big way.

The Trojans, seeded third in the Section 1A playoffs, scored twice in the first quarter, then tacked on three more second-quarter touchdowns to build a 34-0 halftime lead.

After seeing their five-game winning streak snapped last Wednesday by Faribault B.A. in a tight 20-13 game, the Trojans (7-2) left little doubt that they are back on track, scoring early and often against the Vikings (3-6).

Hayfield entered the game with some confidence; the Vikings went 3-1 in the second half of the regular season, after an 0-4 start that included a 35-13 loss to R-P.

R-P quarterback Grady Hengel had a hand in the first three TDs of the game. He ran for one and threw scoring passes of 12 yards (to Dawson Bunke) and 15 yards (to Sampson Wilkemeyer) for a 21-0 lead. Wilkemeyer then caught another TD pass, from Riley Tesch, in the second quarter. Dalton Hoel capped the first half by returning an interception 43 yards for a score.


Jonah Bunke (52-yard rush) scored the final points for the Trojans early in the second half.

Hayfield’s lone score came later in the third quarter on a 22-yard pass from Ethan Pack to Cole Selk. Pack passed for 92 yards and a TD in the game, while Selk led the team with 43 receiving yards.

R-P was led by Hengel, who had 125 yards passing and two TDs, and he ran for 71 yards and a TD. Wilkemeyer had 123 yards receiving — including 103 yards after the catch — on four catches.

R-P will play either Kingsland or Faribault B.A. on Saturday in the section semifinals.

JD Kuhn was 5-for-12 passing for 51 yards and a TD for the host Rockets. Collin Otto had 53 yards rushing on 15 attempts.

Will Van Epps had K-W’s lone TD on a short run in the second quarter. He finished with 25 yards rushing and was 6-for-17 passing for 40 yards.

Cal Luebke led K-W with 34 yards rushing, Dillon Bartel had 29 and A.J. Higenbottum added 26. The Knights close the season 4-5.

Faribault B.A. 42, Kingsland 14

FARIBAULT — Kingsland saw a solid season come to a close here Tuesday, falling to Faribault B.A. 42-14 in the Section 1A quarterfinal round.

The seventh-seeded Knights, who play a 9-Man schedule in the regular season, finish the season 4-5 overall. No stats were reported from Tuesday’s game.


Kingsland, which bumped up to 11-man for the postseason, was a mere seven points away from being 6-2 in the regular season, suffering a three-point loss to Renville Co. West in its season opener, then a two-point loss to Mabel-Canton in Week 4.

Second-seeded Faribault B.A. (7-2) has won five consecutive games since suffering a 28-14 loss to Fillmore Central at home in Week 4. The Falcons’ other loss this season came in the season opener at home against Lester Prairie, 21-0.
