WELLS – The Mayer Lutheran football team is for real. After a dominant win in week one against MN Valley Lutheran, the Crusaders kept their momentum rolling with another dominating performance on the road in a 37-19 win against United South Central Friday night.
The Crusaders wasted no time in getting on the scoreboard in this one. Zander Flucas, a sophomore, got the Crusaders rolling early with a 12-yard touchdown run, giving them an early 6-0 lead.
On the ensuing possession, it was Matthew Menth making a defensive play to extend the lead even more. Menth came away with an interception, and returned it 50-yards for the Crusders’s second touchdown of the night.
In the second quarter, it was Branden Carlson who continued his fine season with a pair of touchdowns. After hauling in a 30-yard touchdown from Baden Noennig, Carlson made it 27-7 with a 17-yard touchdown run with just over five minutes left in the second half.
The Crusaders would go on to play their JV players in the final quarter, and came away with the win to improve to 2-0 on the season.
