Football: Bombers make short work of K-W

Before the season started, Cannon Falls Coach Josh Hofstedt said Bombers’ quarterback Hunter Johnson was a player who “makes things happen.” 

He made plenty happen against Kenyon-Wanamingo Friday night.

Johnson scored five touchdowns – two rushing and three passing – to lead the Bombers to the SFA cross-division victory over Kenyon-Wanamingo. Johnson’s rushing touchdowns were 1 and 10 yards. His passing scores went to three different receivers in Jordan Lundell (9 yards), Brock Peterson (50 yards) and Bailey Mills (7 yards). 

Lundell scored the Bombers’ other touchdown on an 11-yard run and finished with 15 yards rushing and 55 yards receiving.

Johnson was 14 of 17 for 165 passing yards and carried the ball five times for 21 yards. Teammate Ryan Castillo rushed eight times for 60 yards.

On defense, Taylor Carlson had four tackles, three sacks, caused one fumble and had one interception to lead Cannon Falls. Teammate Jason Hemmah had four tackles and two sacks.

The Bombers (1-0) play host to Byron Friday.
