Thu 10-31-2013

Spirit Lake won their opening round of the class 2A football playoffs in convincing fashion Wednesday night, topping MOC Floyd Valley 55-0.  The Indians picked up 572 total yards of offense in the win, led by Alec Henrickson, who went 11-23 thru the air for 223 yards and 3 touchdowns.  Austin Folsom caught two of those touchdown passes as well as rushing for another.  He ended the game with 106 yards receiving on 4 catches and rushed for another 42.  Josh also led the Indians in tackles with 8.  That sets up a rematch with Boyden Hull Rock Valley in the second round.  BHRV advanced in the playoffs Wednesday night after topping Garner Hayfield Ventura 34-13, and are the only team to beat Spirit Lake in the regular season.  That was a 31-8 score back on September 27th.  The game will take place Monday night, back on Hafer Field in Spirit Lake.
