Schedule Toughens for Blossoms; Rivalry Ends for NRHEG
Blooming Prairie's football team will host Goodhue for Friday's homecoming game at 7 pm with coverage on Kat Kountry 105FM. For each team, it's their first big test of the season. The combined record for the first four opponents for both the Awesome Blossoms and Wildcats is 3-13. BP has averaged 48 points while surrendering just four total touchdowns. Goodhue has scored 33 points per contest while giving up just one touchdown all season.
No. 5A-Blooming Prairie (4-0) faces a challenging run to the end of the season with Hayfield (2-2), Mayer-Lutheran (3-1) and Rushford-Peterson (4-0) yet to come. Goodhue is ranked No. 4 in this week's Associated Press poll.
