Blue Earth Area Knocks Off Defending 3A Champs In State Opener

Posted: Updated:

In Lakeville, Blue Earth Area was taking on the defending 3-A champions from Saint Croix Lutheran.
Crusaders would get on the board first, late in the opening quarter when quarterback Lincoln Hochmuth finds a hole and takes off for the 42-yard touchdown run...extra point would be no good, so only a six point deficit.
The Buccaneers answer with an even bigger play in the 2nd quarter when Kysten Zierke pitches it to Gus Phillips, and the junior wideout makes the corner, makes a couple of defenders miss, and he is off to the races...70 yards later Phillips is in for the score,
7-6 Blue Earth Area at that point and the Bucs knock off the champs 21-12, to face Perham next in the Dome.
