By Jack Ellis and Sydney Reiners Tied for third in the Wright County Conference, Orono Football is hoping to move up even higher in the Wright County East division tonight when they travel to Zimmerman for a game against the 4-2 Thunder. With quarterback Ben Turnham leading the division in passing with 832 yards and Koller Adzick leading in receiving with 316 yards, Orono is standing well in the very challenging conference. Orono's varsity football team as a whole has set a feasible goal of winning a section title. With only six teams in their section, Orono is optimistic for getting that section title.

In anticipated fashion, The Trojans roll over the Spuds, 49-14. Their dominant performance proves they are still the favorite to repeat as state champions in class 5A.
If you’re the wagering type, you loved it. It was a sure thing. Easy money. If the real Trojans showed up, they were sure to rout the Moorhead Spuds, a team that ended the regular season with a 3-5 record. Well, the Trojans showed up alright—and in a big way. During the game, they found numerous ways to score points and make a statement during the first round of state tournament play. A small—and sometimes undersized—Trojan defense not only played in their normal dominant fashion, they also found ways to help the offense in putting points on the board. Two interceptions—one by Chris Pierson and one by Alex Carlson—were taken to the house for touchdowns, helping Wayzata put up points quickly in the first half. The Wayzata offense also …

The Moorhead Spuds are in the state tournament for the first time since 2003. They will clash halfway—at St. Cloud State University—with the number-one ranked Wayzata Trojans.
Gameday Moorhead (6-5, 6-5 Independent) vs. Wayzata (10-0, 4-0 in the Lake Conference) Playmakers Nick Martin, Wayzata (Quarterback): After the Trojan’s sub-par performance against Champlin Park, Martin took it upon himself to make sure the offense played the way they are capable of. He didn’t disappoint. He threw three touchdown passes last week while making smart decisions. He also has the ability to put a team in a hole with his punting game. Look for smart quarterback play from Martin as well as a couple punts over 50 yards. Chase Morlock, Moorhead (Running Back): The junior running back stole the show last week against the Brainerd Warriors when he went off for 127 yards and three touchdowns. Look for the Spuds to give him the ball …

The Trojans end the Orioles’ season for the third consecutive year while working their way into the state tournament for the fifth straight season.
The Trojans thumped the Orioles on Friday night in the section championship, 30-7. It’s the third year in a row that Wayzata has ended Osseo’s season. It’s also the fifth year in a row that the Trojans have advanced to the state tournament, making them 5-for-5 since they first started in section five in 2007. “Anything can happen once,” Wayzata Head Coach Brad Anderson said. “You get it this many times and it speaks to the quality of the coaches and the players.” The Wayzata defense was especially dominant on Friday night. They shut down the Orioles, sniffing out the Osseo offense like a pack of hound dogs. And they did it without one of their biggest defensive playmakers, linebacker Ryan Poppitz. “To lose Ryan Poppitz and then come back…

Champlin Park comes off of a first-round rout of Robbinsdale Cooper only to face the No. 1 ranked team in the state: Wayzata.
Gameday Champlin Park (5-4, 4-3 in the Northwest Suburban Conference) at Wayzata (8-0, 4-0 in the Lake Conference) Playmakers The Trojans win if… They can do what they’ve done all year long. In every game they have managed to establish the running game and take advantage of passing opportunities when they were available. Also, if the defense plays like they did against Eden Prairie, they will win this game. The Rebels win if… They play mistake-free football and keep good field position. Wayzata is great at playing the field-position game. They find ways—through great special teams play—to pin opponents deep in their own territory. The Rebels must play well on special teams to make sure they aren’t going 95 yards on offense or giving the …
