H-BC got its second win of the season Friday, Sept. 8, beating Lanesboro 22-14 on the road.

In the first quarter, H-BC started the scoring on a 3-yard keeper by sophomore quarterback Jamin Metzger for a touchdown.

On the two-point conversion, sophomore Micah Bush caught a 3-yard pass from Metzger for an 8-0 lead.

In the second quarter, junior Beau Bakken ran for a touchdown from 3 yards out.

Metzger was sacked on the two-point conversion.

The Burros went three-and-out on their possession and punted the ball to H-BC.

On the first play from scrimmage Bush took the handoff and scampered down the field, scoring on a 90-yard run.

Metzger and junior Jackson Gacke completed a 3-yard pass on the conversion play to extend the Patriots’ lead to 22-0.

That lead stood until the fourth quarter when Lanesboro put together a long drive and scored on a 15-yard pass for six points.

The Burros were unable to convert on their extra point play.

H-BC then went three-and-out and had to punt.

Lanesboro put together another long drive containing four first downs capped off by a 1-yard run for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter.

The Burros converted on their extra point attempt, running in the ball for two points and cutting the Patriots’ lead to 22-14.

Lanesboro kicked off, and the Patriots were able to run out the clock for the win.

“We were trying to control the clock in the second half, but Lanesboro was able to put a couple nice drives together,” head coach Rex Metzger said.

“They are a physical team, and they played a nice second half defensively.”

On Friday, the 2-0 Patriots will host 2-0 Cedar Mountain in nine-man football action.
