The Cannon Falls football team scored first Friday night, but after that it was all Kasson-Mantorville in a 34-21 Bomber loss.
After a nice drive, the Bombers' Jordan Lundell scored on a 1-yard plunge at the 4:35 mark of the 1st quarter. The extra point was no good.
Kasson scored the next four touchdowns, on runs of 52, 49, 51 and 17 yards. Lundell put the Bombers on the board again with a 17-yard interception return for a score. Another K-M rushing touchdown, this time from 26 yards out, was followed by the final score of the game, a 36-yard passing play from Cannon's Hunter Johnson to Brock Peterson.
"We did some things very well but gave up too many big plays, and failed to hit on some big play opportunities of our own," Bomber coach Josh Hofstedt said.
Johnson was 12 of 21 passing for 186 yards and a touchdown. Alex Bultena caught five passes for 39 yards, Peterson four for 90 yards and a score, and Lundell three for 57 yards.
The Bomber rushing game was nearly non-existent, with Johnson rushing for 16 yards, Lundell for 10 and Ryan Castillo six.
Sterling Carlson led with 10 tackles and a sack, Nate Melhouse and Clay Broze had nine tackles each, and Lundell had three tackles and an interception.
The team is at Lake City Friday, for a 7 p.m. ballgame.
