WORTHINGTON —The offense needed a kick-start from the defense after a scoreless first half. So Cha’Ron Thompson stepped up.

Thompson, a 6-1 sophomore linebacker, cradled a fumble and returned it 24 yards to the Ridgewater 6-yard line to set up Minnesota West’s first touchdown early in the third quarter. Then late in the same quarter, he returned an interception 33 yards to the Ridgewater 24, setting up TD No. 2.
