FOOTBALL'S BACK! Luverne Surges Past New Ulm

Bookmark and Share

LUVERNE, MN  --  The 2013 high school football season got an early kickoff on Friday evening in Luverne, where the host Cardinals scored the game's final 21 points to beat New Ulm 28-6.

Jackson Winter scored the season's first touchdown on a 24-yard run for Luverne in the first quarter.  The Cardinals led 7-0 at half.

New Ulm looked poised to tie the game late in the third quarter after Jackson Yackley scored on an 11-yard touchdown run.  Yackley, though, picked up an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in the endzone, and the ensuing extra point was missed after being moved back 15 yards. 

Luverne was clinging to a 7-6 lead when New Ulm muffed a punt with just over a minute left in the third.  Erik Toftland rumbled in from 18 yards out on the next play to give Luverne a 14-6 lead after three quarters.

In the fourth a Connor Hoffman interception led to Toftland's second touchdown run, this one from four yards, to make it 21-6.  Hoffman, the Cardinal's quarterback, added a 64-yard run in the game's final minute.

Luverne outgained New Ulm 290-111 and forced seven turnovers.
