Blooming Prairie Pitches Shutout at Rushford-Peterson
The Rushford-Peterson Trojans had their hands full week one of the High School season, taking on a talented Blooming Prairie squad that was a state entrant a year ago.
The Blossoms proved that early.
Blooming Prairie and Quarterback Kaden Thomas scored 33 points in the first half, en route to a 46-0 win over the Rushford-Peterson Trojans Friday night. Thomas connected with Minnesota State University, Mankato commit Gabe Hagen twice for touchdowns, while also connecting with Karson Vigeland and Mitchell Fieberger in the first half to open the door early for BP.
Thomas finished 15/18 for 221 yards and four touchdowns.
The Trojans struggled to move the ball on offense in the first half, despite a couple of nice plays through the air from Quarterback Malachi Bunke to WR Kobe Lind. The Trojans had better success in the second half running the football, as Brady Gile had 63 yards on 11 carries to pace the Trojans.
After the Blossoms early lead, they went to QB Drew Kittleson in the second half, who was also successful, throwing for one touchdown to Bradley Simon to wrap up the scoring.
The Trojans will look to rebound next week as they take on Faribault BA on the road, while BP has their home opener against Wabasha-Kellogg.
