(ABC 6 News) – It wasn’t the best playing conditions, but the Spring Grove Lions got the job done on the snowy and cold football field on Friday night.
The Lions edged Russell-Tyler-Ruthton in the Class 9-Man state football quarterfinals on Friday night in New Ulm, 27-26, as senior quarterback Alex Folz connected with Kai Bjerke for the go-ahead 18-yard touchdown pass and catch with 33 seconds left to edge the Knights.
With the win, the Lions, the defending Class 9-Man state champions, have now won 26 consecutive games. Spring Grove will play Cromwell-Wright in the Class 9-Man state semifinals at US Bank Stadium next Thursday.
