Sat 10-26-2013

Spirit Lake finished their regular season on a strong note, with a win on the road last night against Estherville Lincoln Central 47-26.  With starting quarterback Alec Henrickson nursing an injury from practice earlier in the week, sophomore quarterbacks Billy Brown and Logan Backhaus made the most of their opportunity, each scoring 2 rushing touchdowns and leading the offense to 458 total yards, 441 of them on the ground.  Caleb Jennings was the leading rusher for the Indians, picking up 121 yards on only 3 carries including an 83 yard touchdown run.  Defensively, Dallas Poock totaled 11 tackles on the night.  Tanner Kroon added 10.  Spirit Lake now moves on to the post season, where they will host MOC Floyd Valley Wednesday night at Hafer Field.
