Chatfield 51, La Crescent-Hokah 7

LA CRESCENT — Chatfield just keeps doing it, torching one opponent after the other.

The No. 1-ranked and defending champion Gophers made vastly improved La Crescent-Hokah their latest victim, sprinting to a 51-7 Southeast District win.

Star runner Sam Backer did his sprinting with the ball tucked under his arm. The senior finished with a whopping 351 yards rushing and four touchdowns, getting it done on 17 carries. That's a ridiculous 21 yards per carry. Backer's longest TD run covered 89 yards.

Jackson Schild had 92 yards on 14 carries. Chatfield finished with 456 yards rushing as a team.

The Gophers' defense made it a long night for La Crescent-Hokah quarterback A.J. Donovan. Donovan managed 149 yards passing but was picked off four times.


La Crescent is 5-0, while La Crescent-Hokah slipped to 2-3.

Chatfield is outscoring its opponents by an average of 51-9. The Gophers get a big test next week when they host No. 3-ranked and unbeaten Caledonia.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
