Junior quarterback Brad Davison ran for one touchdown and passed for another — to Teddy Raasch in the corner of the end zone with 6.8 seconds left in the first half — as Maple Grove rolled over Wayzata for the second consecutive year. The Crimson (3-2) forced four turnovers and never allowed previously unbeaten Wayzata's offense inside the red zone until midway through the final quarter.
Key of the game: With 1:10 left in the first half and trailing 7-0, Wayzata fumbled a snap at its own 45-yard line. Maple Grove recovered and capped the first half with Raasch's touchdown.
Quote: "The defense won us the game tonight. I don't know how many turnovers they had, but they were flying around, playing fast and playing with a lot of confidence. We didn't have to do much [on offense] in this one." — Maple Grove's Davison
One thing to know: Maple Grove coach Matt Lombardi is now 2-0 against his former team.
