Football: Park earns win over South St. Paul, East Ridge falls to Mounds View
Park 29, South St. Paul 7
The Park defense was able to shut down South St. Paul for the first three quarters of Friday night's game. This allowed the Wolfpack's offense to take full advantage and gain a lead that eventually became a win for Park.
Park's quarterback Marshaun Campbell had a big night with 329 passing yards and two passing touchdowns, while completing 20 of his 31 passes.
Those two passing touchdowns went to Charlie Gorres and AJ Morrisson. Gorres had the biggest day for the Wolfpack wide receivers as he had six receptions for 157 yards, while Morrisson had two catches for 50 yards.
On the rushing attack, Uriah Davis was the key running back with nine rushes for 96 yards including a touchdown.
The win on Friday night evens up Park's record this season to 3-3 as the Wolfpack prepares for two more regular season games. Park will play at home for both games starting with St. Thomas Academy on Friday, Oct. 12 and Simley on Wednesday, Oct. 17.
After those two games, Park will prepare for the playoffs at the end of October.
Mounds View 21, East Ridge 10
The Raptors held a 10-7 lead heading into the half after Zach Zebrowski found Simon Stark for a 54-yard touchdown in the second quarter. That touchdown tied the game at 7-7 and Jack McKenzie connected on a 36-yard field goal to make it a 10-7 lead.
Those would be the only 10 points East Ridge would record on Friday night as Mounds View came out and scored in the third and fourth quarter to take the lead and, eventually, win the game with a final of 21-10.
The loss brings East Ridge's record down to 4-2 on the season and knocks the Raptors out of first place in the Suburban East Conference behind Woodbury. East Ridge will head to in-town rival Woodbury on Friday, Oct. 12 at 7 p.m. to try and tie with the Royals for the lead.
After the Woodbury game, the Raptors will host Centennial on Wednesday, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. to wrap up the regular season. Then, East Ridge will prepare for the playoffs at the end of October.
