Totino-Grace has 194 yards rushing and has built what appears to be an insurmountable 31-0 lead on Sartell-St. Stephen at halftime in a matchup of unbeaten teams in the Class 4A Prep Bowl.
The game turned on a controversial play in the first quarter. With the Sabres driving after a Totino-Grace fumble, QB Cole Jenkins threw a quick pass into the right flat. It appeared on the replay to be a forward pass by about half a yard, but it was ruled a backwards pass – and therefore a fumble. It bounced to Jeremy Klein, who took a couple steps, stopped, and then completed a 76-yard TD return for the first score of the game.
From there, the Eagles took control of the game. A victory would give Totino-Grace its fifth Class 4A title in the past seven seasons.
