Football: Agates break Broncos for homecoming
Two Harbors Sam Johnson scored the only two touchdowns of a sloppy, muddy 14-0 homecoming win over International Falls on Friday, Oct. 5.
Johnson had 58 yards and the team rushed for only 132 yards in a game where field conditions were as much of a story as the play.
The field was soft and muddy before the game started. The turf deteriorated and prevented either team from gaining traction. The mud also led to multiple bad snaps for both teams and eight total turnovers — five for Two Harbors and three for the Broncos.
Johnson scored from 1 yard out early in the first quarter and broke away for a 42-yard score in the second quarter.
Mason Meyer made a tackle in the Broncos' own end zone for a safety in the only score of the second half.
Two Harbors (5-2) is off Friday, Oct. 12, and will play at Eveleth-Gilbert at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 17. With a win, the Agates would clench a first-round bye in the Section 7AAA playoffs and play Oct. 27 in the section semifinals.
