Owatonna Runs Over Rochester for Homecoming Victory
Rochester John Marshall's sophomore quarterback likely felt like he got hit by a truck, which had the No. 64 on its back. Huskies senior Eli Spurgeon was one of several Huskies to put a heavy hit on the JM signal caller. Owatonna's defense turned in another dominating performance in a 41-0 homecoming victory Friday night in front of a packed house, festive crowd at the OHS football field.
The Huskies had three touchdown drives of 35 yards or less thanks to the stifling defense and four forced turnovers. Jacob Ginskey had three touchdown tosses, two of those caught by Ayden Walter. Dylan Maas had a touchdown run and catch. Drew Henson connected on field goals of 41 and 33 yards.
Owatonna (4-2) goes to New Prague Friday, October 15 for a 7 pm kickoff. Hear the game on AM 1390 KRFO / 94.7 FM and on the free KRFO app. The Huskies will close the regular season Wednesday, October 20 hosting Kasson-Mantorville.
Friday's win over the Rockets should secure a top two seed in Section 1-5A where the Huskies are the five-time defending champions. Rochester Mayo is in line to be the top seed.
