Charger football falls to Holy Family

VICTORIA – The DC football team lost their first game of the season Friday, falling on the road to Holy Family 32-7.

The Chargers’ only touchdown came on a 16-yard completion from Paul Raisanen to Collin Krick on 4th-and-3 in the third quarter.

DC struggled on both sides of the ball. On offense, the running game never took hold, while Raisanen and his receivers missed on a number of plays, with DC wide receivers dropping a number of balls throughout the game and Raisanen misfiring on a number of passes.

On defense, the Chargers struggled to contain Holy Family quarterback Jacob Zay, who ran around the edges to either pick up big gains or complete passes all game long.

DC fell to 6-1 with the loss, while Holy Family improved to 5-2.

DC girls swim & dive falls short of True Team State

WILLMAR – The Dassel-Cokato swim & dive team came into the Section 3A True Team tournament Saturday hoping for their eighth straight bid to the Class A True Team State Tournament.

Coach Nathan Youngs said the meet started out well, but went downhill quickly.
