Football: Agates bust Broncos
Two Harbors senior Spencer Ross scored three more touchdowns, bringing his season total to 15, in the Agates 48-8 win over International Falls Oct. 6.
Ross had a season-low 78 yards rushing, but added 96 yards and a touchdown through the air to his already fantastic senior campaign for Two Harbors.
Ross got the scoring started with a 20 yard touchdown run in the first quarter and David Anderson returned an interception 55 yards to make the score 14-0.
Junior Ricky Brenna scored on a 52 yard run in the second quarter and Logan Loiselle caught a 50 yard touchdown pass from quarterback Ryan Darsow to stretch the lead to 28-0. Ross added his second touchdown of the day from eight yards out just before the half.
Brenna scored again from 24 yards out to start the third quarter, leading the Agates in rushing with 91 yards, and Ross caught a 76 yard touchdown pass from Darsow.
Darsow had one of the best days a Two Harbors signal caller has had in recent years, going 5-for-7 and 196 yards and two touchdowns in the game.
The Agate defense also added to its dominant year, allowing just fourth quarter six points after the Two Harbors reserves were playing and the Agates led by 48 points. In addition to Anderson's interception return and six tackles, senior Mason Meyer had seven tackles and a fumble recovery that led to Brenna's first touchdown.
Two Harbors (6-1) is off Friday, but will play Eveleth-Gilbert at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Two Harbors. The Agates are competing with Esko and Proctor for a first round bye in the Section 7AA playoffs and statement win over the Golden Bears would ensure Two Harbors finishes the season with a better record than the 4-2 Rails.
