MAPLE GROVE 31, BLAINE 7
Maple Grove rolled to victory at Blaine behind junior running back Clark Wieneke’s 181 yards and four touchdowns. Wieneke’s older brother, Jake, a Star Tribune All-Metro first-team selection at receiver last season and now a redshirt freshman at South Dakota State, attended his brother’s big game. “It’s great for him to be here because he’s always supported me and I love him,” Clark said.
Key of the game: Two quick strikes in the middle of the game helped establish Maple Grove’s dominance. A three-play, 81-yard drive ended with a 6-yard score from Wieneke just before halftime and gave the Crimson a 19-0 advantage. His third touchdown concluded a two-play, 42-yard drive in the third quarter and made the score 25-0.
Quote: “Your brother said he had four touchdowns against Centennial so you didn’t set a family record.” — a Maple Grove assistant coach to the younger Wieneke after the game.
