For the fourth straight week the Caledonia Warrior football team completely dominated its opponent from the opening kick-off to the end of the game. The number five state-ranked Warriors defeated visiting Rushford-Peterson 49-0 to notch their fifth straight win without a defeat.

It was Homecoming for the Warriors and they didn’t disappoint the capacity crowd, as they held the Trojans to an astounding five yards total offense in the first half.

Ivan Augedahl got the Warriors on the board on the opening drive when he sprinted 23 yards for a TD. Austin Goergen’s kick was good and the Warriors had a 7-0 lead.

Luke Lampert pulled in the first of two TD passes on the night from Josh Gran in the first period from nine yards out. Goergen’s kick was no good and the Caledonia lead was 13-0 as the first quarter came to a close.

Lampert and Gran connected on a 24-yard scoring strike early in the second period. The Goergen kick was good and the Caledonia lead was 20-0.

The Warriors made it 27-0 when Gran hit Ryan Rusert on a nine-yard TD pass and Goergen’s kick was good.

The Warriors continued the scoring barrage in the third period when Seth Kasten broke free and romped 44 yards for a TD. The Warriors went for two points, which proved to be successful when Jim Costigan pulled in the pass from Kennan Bruening to boost the Warrior lead to 35-0.

The Warrior defense got into the scoring scene when Zach Lechner intercepted a Trojan pass and returned it 34 yards for a TD. Goergen’s kick was good and the lead was 42-0.

The final TD of the third period came when Houston Halverson caught a pass from Gran from 21 yards out. The Goergen kick was once again good and the Warriors had a 49-0 lead as the third period came to a close.

Coach Brent Schroeder used his second and third stringers in the fourth period and the reserves responded by preserving the shutout.
