For the first time in 11 years, Lake City walked off the field winners over Kasson-Mantorville. The Tigers scored three times against the KoMets to take a 19-6 Southern Football Alliance Red Division victory back home, its first over K-M since 2003.

Michael Noll provided all the scoring for Lake City, adding touchdown runs in the first, second and fourth quarters. Noll’s first six points came with 2 minutes, 24 seconds left in the first quarter on a 2-yard run. The senior running back then scored from 21 yards out with 10:51 to play in the first half. Noll then capped off his night with another 21-yard scamper with 8:35 to play in the game.

K-M scored its touchdown when Brendan Knoll hit Drew Kirmse from 14 yards with 7:21 to go.

As much as the Tigers dominated the scoreboard, the win would not come easy as two fourth-quarter fumbles nearly let the game slip away.

After the first turnover, the KoMets got to the Lake City 10-yard line with 4:10 to play, but turned it over on downs on an incomplete pass. The second Tiger fumble resulted in a turnover on downs at midfield with two minutes to play.

Knoll led K-M with 110 yards rushing, while Andrew Bigelow, the KoMets leading rusher coming in, had just 40 yards. K-M managed just 54 yards of total offense in the first half. Knoll also completed 12-of-30 passes for 114 yards.

Lake City totaled 266 total rushing yards, with Noll accounting for 156 yards and three touchdowns on 21 carries. Luke Hartzell added 87 yards

Tiger quarterback Andrew Schmidt finished 3-of-6 for 50 yards, with Eli Custer grabbing two passes for 44 yards.

Lake City (4-2, 2-2 SFA Red) will host top-ranked (Class 3A) Rochester Lourdes next week. The Eagles (6-0, 5-0) are coming off a 32-14 victory over No. 5 (Class 4A) Stewartville.
