Edgerton 62, Madelia 8

EDGERTON -- Just like old times, the Edgerton Flying Dutchmen ran roughshod over a football opponent Friday night. In their 2021 season opener, EHS defeated visiting Madelia 62-8 while racking up 512 yards on the ground on 55 carries.

Nolan Buckridge ran for three touchdowns on totes of 46, 4 and 13 yards. He also threw for a score to Michael Gunnink from 21 yards out.


Gunnink ran for 191 on 14 carries for the game, scoring twice on runs of 23 and 70 yards.

Edgerton finished with 577 total yards of offense, adding 65 through the air. Madelia had just 118 total yards.

Gunnink and Dylan Luce each intercepted a Madelia pass on defense. Luce also gained 56 yards rushing on six carries.

The Dutchmen are young this year, and thin in numbers. Head coach Andrew Fleischman has just 14 players suited between grades 9-12.

“I think if we stay healthy, we’re going to stay competitive with a lot of the teams we play. If the wrong kids get injured, we’re going to run into some trouble,” Fleischman said.

Okoboji 26, Sibley-Ocheyedan 7

SIBLEY, Iowa -- Logan Heller rushed for 293 yards on 33 carries, scoring three times, and Okoboji topped Sibley-Ocheyedan in a northwest Iowa football clash.

Sophomore quarterback Dalton Wingate completed seven of 18 passes for 79 yards and Sibley-Ocheyedan’s lone touchdown. Vance Hayenga-Johnson led the Generals in rushing with 26 yards on seven carries.

N-K 32, H-LP 29

LAKE PARK, Iowa -- In a tight contest, Northwood-Kensett dropped Harris-Lake Park to 0-2 on the season by overcoming a 21-18 halftime deficit.

Austin Gilmore scored on a 9-yard run for H-LP. Tyce Gunderson scored on a 5-yard run and threw two touchdown passes to Lucas Ahrenstorff covering 7 and 10 yards.

The Wolves rushed 29 times for 119 yards and completed 22 of 35 passes for 243 yards, with one interception.
