Football: Cannon Falls crushes La Crescent

Jordan Lundell scored three rushing touchdowns, and Hunter Johnson added two scoring passes to lead Cannon Falls to a 37-14 Southern Football Alliance Red division victory over La Crescent.

The Lancers opened the scoring with 5 minutes, 1 second to go in the first quarter, but Johnson and Lundell took it from there.

Lundell caught a 32-yard Johnson pass with 2:32 to go in the opening quarter, then rushed in two straight scores as the Bombers took a 21-7 lead.

Lundell then hauled in another Johnson pass to put Cannon Falls up three scores with 5:04 left in the third quarter.

Derek Johnson would add a 19-yard field goal late in the third before Ryan Castillo capped the scoring with a 27-yard gallop with just under nine minutes to go in the game.

Hunter Johnson finished 8 of 15 for 140 yards and two scores. Lundell rushed 11 times for 36 yards and three scores, and two receptions for 54 yards and two scores. Castillo added 91 yards on nine carries.

The Bombers (2-1) will welcome Kasson-Mantorville next Friday.
