Minneota/Lincoln HI 18, Dawson-Boyd 14
The Minneota/Lincoln HI football team kept top-ranked Dawson-Boyd's potent offense out of the end zone for the entire second half and handed the Blackjacks their first loss since the 2010 season in an 18-14 win Friday night in Dawson.
All the scoring in the game was done in the first half.
Minneota/Lincoln HI (3-1 overall, 2-1 Little Sioux Conference) took a 6-0 lead in the first quarter after capping a 13-play drive with a two-yard touchdown run by Jeff Gladis.
Dawson-Boyd (3-1, 3-1) answered early in the second quarter and tied the game with a three-yard touchdown run by Justin Lee, who finished the game with 19 carries for 80 yards.
The Vikings retook the lead with the first of two big passes from Austin Buysse to Nathan Pavek. Buysse hooked up with Pavek for an 80-yard touchdown strike to put the Vikings up 12-0, and after Dawson-Boyd answered back with a five-yard pass from Joey Lee to Nathaniel Huot, Minneota/Lincoln HI had another quick strike when Pavek caught a 41-yard touchdown pass from Buysse.
The defenses of the two teams stepped up in the second half, and Minneota/Lincoln HI foiled a last-ditch effort by the Blackjacks in the waning seconds of the fourth quarter thanks to a couple of sacks on the quarterback.
Buysse finished the game 14 of 26 passing for 265 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Pavek had four catches for 158 yards and his two touchdowns.
Joey Lee was 10-for-18 passing for 109 yards and one touchdown.
The Blackjacks will try to rebound next Friday with a road game against Adrian, while the Vikings look to build on their momentum in a home game against Tracy-Milroy-Balaton.
