Huskies Return to State Tourney
November 2, 2013Owatonna Football
The Owatonna Huskies used a potent ground game and a great defense to defeat the Rochester Mayo Spartans 42-0 and earn a second straight Section 1AAAAA title. The victory gives the Huskies a return trip to the state playoffs as they will take on Section 3 Champion Apple Valley; a 28-0 winner over Minneapolis Washburn; on Thursday night, November 7 at Lakeville North High School.
Ty Sullivan got the Huskies on the scoreboard quickly with an 88 yard return of the opening kickoff. That play set the tone for the game, as the Huskies never looked back. The defense gave up one first down on the Spartans' opening series then the offensive line took over. They opened huge holes for Aaron Peterson and Luke Wanous, and allowed the Huskies to control the game. Peterson ran for over almost 240 yards and three touchdowns, while Wanous added another TD on a 66 yard trap play through a huge hole on the left side of the line.
