Football | Spring Grove takes down Lanesboro

September 30, 2018

LANESBORO – The showdown is set.

No team has come within two scores of No. 1-ranked Spring Grove this season.

And after a convincing 49-16 victory for the Lions against Lanesboro on Friday, they can prepare to face perhaps their toughest competition in their district and in Section 1. The Lions play host to No. 5-ranked Houston -- an overtime winner against Randolph on Friday -- next Friday night.

The Lions (5-0) certainly didn’t look past Lanesboro. They led 7-0 after one quarter, then added three second-quarter touchdowns to take a 28-8 lead into halftime.

Spring Grove quarterback Alex Folz led the way for the Lions Friday, rushing for 198 yards and three touchdowns on 18 carries. He also passed for 158 yards as the Lions finished with 415 total yards.

Lanesboro (2-3) had 243 total yards of offense, including 150 rushing. The Burros were led by Nate Betz, who had 100 yards and a touchdown on eight carries.

Lanesboro plays at Lyle/Pacelli next Friday.
