Seth Peterson scored from five yards out at 3:23 in the fourth quarter to break a 14-14 stalemate. It was his second rushing touchdown of the night and third total which included a five hard pass to Gabe Hagen on a slant route in the second quarter.

“It was just a great high school football game,” said head coach Chad Gimbel after the game. “A lot of emotion.”

Peterson ended the night with 157 yards passing, five of which went to Hagen who had 68 yards receiving.

The two teams battled throughout the night and Gimbel admitted it wasn’t the Blossom’s prettiest game.

“Its as a big game, but we know we didn’t play our best game,” he said. “We found a way to come out on top.”
