Mt. Lake Area advanced to the Section 3 Nine-Man championship in convincing fashion Saturday afternoon, racking up over 400 yards of total offense in a 56-20 victory over Heron Lake-Okabena-Fulda at Mt. Lake.

The Wolverines raced to the early lead behind a powerful ground game that scored a pair of long runs.

On the game's opening drive, the Wolverines marched the length of the field, scoring on a 6-yard Mace Herrig run. The two-point conversion by Abe Stoesz gave MLA a quick 8-0 lead.

MLA forced an HLOF punt and immediately turned it into points, as Stoesz found a seam and raced 71 yards to paydirt. Kolby Kremmin's extra-point kick gave MLA a 15-0 lead.

HLOF pinned the Wolverines deep in their own end on their next drive, but another big play led to MLA points as Herrig raced 89 yards for a touchdown.

Then, late in the first quarter, MLA stretched its lead to 28-0 when Ethan Nickel hauled in a 5-yard swing pass from Stoesz.

The Wolverines took to the air early in the second quarter, as Brett Willaby reeled in a 22-yard touchdown reception from Stoesz for a 35-0 lead.

Stoesz added a 15-yard touchdown run and Herrig scored from 6 yards out, giving the Wolverines a 49-0 halftime advantage.

HLOF got on the board in the third quarter, as Zach Thier caught a 15-yard touchdown pass from Eli Fest.

MLA tacked on its final touchdown early in the fourth quarter on a 3-yard run from Nickel.

The Coyotes added a 70-yard Tyler Madison touchdown run and a 2-yard touchdown run from Dylan Johanning in the fourth quarter.

Herrig finished with 22 carries for 193 yards in the win. Stoesz rushed 12 times for 175 yards.

Stoesz completed 4-of-5 passes for 43 yards. Willaby had two receptions for 30 yards.

Red Rock Central's defense struggled to stop a high-powered Renville County West offense Saturday, as the top-seeded Jaguars blistered the Falcons 40-14 in the Section 2 Nine-Man playoffs at Danube.

The Jaguars had four scoring drives of eight plays or more in the game, converting several third- and fourth-downs in the game.

The Falcons offense did its part early, though, marching 80 yards in 11 plays into the wind to open the game. Jonah Hansen capped the drive with a 5-yard touchdown run, giving RRC a quick 6-0 lead.

But RCW answered, moving 68 yards in 14 plays, capped with a 4-yard option keeper by quarterback Jack Howard. The two-point conversion pass gave RCW an 8-6 lead.

On the Falcons' next drive, it marched to the RCW 19-yard line, but a sack on third down and an incomplete pass on fourth down turned the ball over.

The Jaguars capitalized, going 72 yards in 14 plays into the wind. After converting on fourth-and-8, the Jaguars scored when Howard hit Riley Ashburn with an 11-yard touchdown pass for a 14-6 lead, which RCW kept until halftime.

The Jaguars started the second half and moved quickly downfield, capping a 60-yard, nine-play drive with a 3-yard touchdown run from Howard. The extra-point kick gave RCW a 21-6 lead.

After RCW forced a Falcon punt, the Jaguars struck quickly on a 44-yard touchdown run from Brandan Hoberg for a 27-6 lead.

The Falcons tried to convert on fourth-and-1 from their own 40, but the RCW defense stopped the Falcons cold for the second time in the game, turning the ball over on downs. Moments later, the Jaguars cashed in on the first play of the fourth quarter, as Jaden Kolker scored on a 24-yard run for a 34-6 lead.

The Falcons again tried to pick up a fourth-down conversion on their own side of midfield, but a sack turned the ball over on downs and Howard hit Ashburn moments later for a 15-yard touchdown, giving RCW a 40-6 lead.

The Falcons scored their final points late in the game when Tavion Ryker hit Luke Willhite along the sidelines for a 32-yard touchdown pass. Willhite added the two-point conversion, making the final score 40-14.

Hansen led RRC with 84 yards rushing on 19 carries. Hayden Determan rushed seven times for 13 yards.

Ryker completed 13-of-18 passes for 135 yards. Willhite had six catches for 70 yards. Determan had three catches for 38 yards.
