Big plays and kick streak in 63-6 win

There were a lot of Minneota touchdowns in the 63-6 win over Russell-Tyler-Ruthton on Friday at Tayler.
But the most memorable was a 90-yard kickoff return touchdown by senior Andrew Behnke to start the second half and a 61-yard run by Brock Buysse — who scored a touchdown on his birthday.
Also memorable from Friday's game were the nine straight point-after touchdown kicks by Diego Mesa-Palmer, who no has 26 straight kicks this year without a miss.  read entire story. . . .

On The Bench - Johnston gets 100th Career Win

Coach Chad Johnston received his 100th career win as a Head  Football Coach on Thursday Night against Lakeview.
The head coach has had a very memorable career and gaining 100 wins is no easy matter.
And he’s done it in such a short time.
Some coaches take 20 to 25 years to win 100 games.
Having state champion and state runnerup teams doesn’t hurt one single bit.
The 63-6 win over Lakeview is one in a long line of one-sided games the coach has won as head coach of the Minneota Vikings.
And I don’t think he’s lost more than one home game in all the years he’s been coaching in Minneota.
Congratulations Coach Johnston. This is a great accomplishment.
