Blossoms keep perfect season alive by pounding BA

Another team that is proving to be unstoppable this season is the Blossoms football team. Blooming Prairie crushed Faribault Bethlehem Academy 48-6 Friday night in Faribault.

The victory kept Blooming Prairie’s unbeaten season alive at seven games.

Blooming Prairie didn’t waste time Friday night as it got on the scoreboard quickly with a 28-yard pass from Kaden Thomas to Gabe Hagen for a touchdown. Carson Brennecke’s extra point kick was good to put the Blossoms up 7-0, a lead that would prove to be all the Blossoms needed for the night.

A few minutes later, Thomas connected with Alex Baldwin on a 16-yard pass for a touchdown. Brennecke kicked the extra point again.

In the second quarter, BP’s Cole Christianson intercepted a BA pass, setting up yet another scoring opportunity for the Blossoms. Bradley Simon rushed for 25 yards to score BP’s third touchdown of the game. Brennecke connected on his third extra point kick.

The Blossoms added another touchdown with about three minutes left in the half. Thomas scored a touchdown on a 1-yard rush. Brennecke once again put up the extra point kick, giving BP a 28-0 lead at half time.

The third quarter proved to be the most explosive offensively for the Blossoms as they piled on three touchdowns. The first was Simon with a 59-yard rushing effort and Brennecke with the extra point kick.

Faribault finally got on the scoreboard with about six minutes left in the third quarter.

Blooming Prairie came roaring back with yet another touchdown a few minutes later when Thomas connected on an 11-yard pass. The extra point kick was good again from Brennecke.

The final touchdown of the game came when Thomas hurled a 23-yard pass to Baldwin for a touchdown, putting the Blossoms up 48-6.

The Blossoms (7-0) host Medford tonight (Wednesday) for the final regular game of the season. The Tigers go into the outing with a record of 3-4. Medford lost to Kenyon-Wanamingo 14-0.
