Friday night high school football roundup:

JCC 12, Pipestone Area 7

JACKSON -- Host Jackson County Central scored twice in the first half and held on to defeat Pipestone Area Friday night in a high school football game that matched two squads that have been state ranked in Minnesota Class AA for most of the season.

Travis Rogotzke scored in the first quarter on a 54-yard pass from quarterback Roman Voss, and in the second stanza Seth Stai found paydirt on a 12-yard run.

Pipestone Area finally scored with 5:11 remaining in the fourth quarter and had a chance to take the lead later. But Aiven Farmer and Bryson Powers combined on a big sack to thwart the comeback bid.


JCC passed for 116 yards and rushed for 42. Pipestone Area passed for 120 and rushed for 142.
