Cannon Falls Blanks Wingers

Blame it on the full moon, on Friday the 13th. Or, just blame it on a team with too many weapons to counter.  Either way, Cannon Falls earned a 60-0 win over the Red Wing Wingers.

The Bombers struck first with 7:57 remaining in the first quarter, when Kade Holt ran in a 25 yard score.  Cannon Falls attempted a fake extra point, looking for a 2-point conversion, but the pass was short, and Cannon Falls led 6-0.

About 90 game seconds later, Jack Dommeyer recovered a Winger fumble, which set up a Trenton Matthies 43 yard TD scamper, and before you knew it, the Bombers were up 13-0.

Red Wing had problems stringing together a drive on offense.  Not because they couldn’t make plays, but it seemed like every good play was followed by a penalty.  The defense, though, did all they could to stop the Bomber assault.  Red Wing held Cannon Falls on a 4th down play with 1:19 left in the first quarter.

However, the momentum could not be sustained.  Mason Duden returned a punt block 44 yards for a score.  20-0 Cannon Falls.

Marcus Banks ran in a score from 13-yards out.  27-0 Cannon Falls.

19 game-seconds later, Kade Holt picked off a Henry Davig pass to give the ball back to the offense.  2 minutes later, Matthies scored his second TD of the game on a 3-yard run.  34-0.

With just over 90 seconds left in the half, Devin Sexton got in on the TD party, and sent the Bombers into the locker room with a 41-0 lead.

The second half was more of the same.  Matthies hit paydirt once again in the third quarter, while Jake McAdam and Carson Hammel scored on runs of 5 and 70 yards, respectively.

Cannon Falls attempted just one pass the entire game.

Red Wing (0-3) will travel to Lake City (2-1), who is coming off an upset of Rochester Lourdes.  Cannon Falls (3-0), will have a week off before meeting the Tigers in Lake City on September 27.

Football Night on HBC will be in Winona next week, as the Winhawks (3-0), will host Kasson-Mantorville (2-1).  Pregame at 6:45, kickoff at 7PM on September 20 on HBC TV 25.
