Hutchinson Claims State AAAA Football Title In Rout
Mitch Petersen ran for 148 yards and three touchdowns, and quarterback McKinley Anderson also ran for three scores as Hutchinson routed Holy Family 67-7 on Friday night to win the Class 4A state championship.
Tory Adams ran for 197 yards and a touchdown for the Tigers (13-0). It's Hutchinson's fourth state title in school history, and first since 1998.
The rematch between the two Wright County Conference foes looked a lot like the first - when the Tigers beat the Fire (10-4) with a score of 60-7 on Sept. 28.
Connor Byrnes scored Holy Family's first and only touchdown, a 2-yard run with 3:03 left in the game.
Backup Fire quarterback Hank Hopkins threw for 122 yards in relief of starter Ben Baker.
