CL runs into Buffalo buzzsaw
If you ever wanted to see 100 points scored in a high school football game, you came close to getting your wish last Friday night at Buffalo High School, as the Wildcats and the Buffalo Bison combined to score 97 points.  Unfortunately for the Wildcats, Buffalo scored the lion’s share of those points.  Bison quarterback Adrian Bouman lived up to his well-deserved hype, throwing for 458 yards and six touchdowns to lead Buffalo to a 62-35 win over the Wildcats.  The teams battled back and forth in the first half, with Buffalo scoring twice in the last two minutes to take a 35-28 lead into halftime.  They pulled away in the second half, outscoring the Wildcats 27-7.  Buffalo improved to 5-2 on the season, while the Wildcats dropped to 2-5.

CL stops North Branch in rivalry
Chisago Lakes 2, North Branch 0
In last Thursday’s boys’ soccer rivalry game at Chisago Lakes High School, the Wildcats shadowed Viking senior forward Jose Flor for the entire game, with Wildcat junior Alex Bachmeier seemingly asked to do most of the dirty work.  Flor, the scoring leader for the Vikings and one of the top scorers in the state, barely touched the ball for the entire game.  The Wildcats scored twice and shut out the Vikings 2-0.

St. Francis spoils Chisago Lakes' homecoming with 28-7 drubbing
Despite their 2-3 record going into last Friday’s homecoming game with the St. Francis Fighting Saints, the Wildcats had played well overall and given themselves a chance to win in each of the season’s first five games.  But the Wildcats struggled from the outset against the ball-control offense and aggressive defense of the Saints, and the Saints came away from the Chisago Lakes High School football field with a 28-7 win that didn’t seem that close.  The game was played in a fine mist that fell throughout the game before an overflow cloud of over 1,500 people.

Another heartbreaking defeat for CL, as Rogers storms back
For the Rogers Royals, last Friday night’s Homecoming game couldn’t have had a better script.  Having scored with 2:22 left to cut the Wildcat lead to 9-7, the Royals needed to successfully execute an onside kick in order to have a chance to win.  All the Wildcats had to do seal the win was to recover the onside kick.  The Rogers kicker drove the ball hard into the ground to the right.  As it skittered towards the right sideline, two Wildcats had a shot at it but could not secure the ball.  The Royals fell on it at the Wildcat 38-yard line.  Rogers drove to the Wildcat 24-yard line and, with 44 seconds left in the game, Bjorn Charles kicked a 41-yard field goal to give the Royals a 10-9 lead.  The Wildcats failed to move the ball on their ensuing possession and the Royals came away with their first win of the season.

CL's bid for upset comes up short against Elk River
Elk River, ranked second in Class 5AA, scored the go-ahead touchdown with 36 seconds remaining to beat the upset-minded Wildcat football team 28-21 last Friday, September 21 at Elk River High School.  The Wildcats led 21-20 when the Elks got the ball at their own 35 with four minutes left in the game.  The Elks went on a 13-play drive that included two conversions on fourth and one.  On first and ten from the Wildcat 13 with 43 seconds left in the game, Elk River’s Kevin Egbujor took a handoff, ran through a hole on the left side of the line and dove through Wildcat tacklers into the end zone for a touchdown to put the Elks up 26-21.  Egbujor also ran for the two-point conversion to put the Elks up by seven.

North Branch crunches second-ranked Cloquet 18-14
Cloquet had North Branch’s number last year. The Lumberjacks beat North Branch at their own homecoming last year, and then ended their season in the section championship game before going on to finish second in the state tournament. It’s safe to say North Branch owed them one.
