Stewartville 56, Lake City 7

The turnover bug bit Lake City hard on Friday night as it fell victim to six of them en route to a 56-7 blowout loss to Stewartville.

Stewartville opened up a 21-0 lead in the first quarter in part due to big plays. Two of its touchdowns came from plays 50 yards or more. Lake City got on the board early in the second quarter when Brady Schurhammer broke free for an 85-yard touchdown run, but that was all the scoring to be had for the Tigers. Stewartville went on to score five unanswered touchdowns to cap the night.

Schurhammer was the offensive leader for Lake City, going for 157 yards on 24 carries. Nathan Heise went 6-of-15 for 56 yards and two interceptions. Reid Gastner was the leading receiver with three receptions for 39 yards.

Lake City (0-2) travels to Pine Island next Friday.

Byron 17, Pine Island 14

Pine Island found itself in another close, low-scoring affair on Friday night, but again came in on the losing end, falling 17-14 to Byron.

With both teams knotted up 14-14 with two minutes remaining in the game, Byron marched down the field and hit a 34-yard field goal with less than a minute remaining to push the Bears ahead.

Pine Island was led offensively by Josh Navratil who carried the ball 26 times for 160 yards. The Panthers finished with 179 yards rushing as a team.

Pine Island (0-2) hosts Lake City (0-2) next Friday.
