Dawson-Boyd 27, Adrian 6
On the road and looking to bounce back from their first loss in 17 games, the Dawson-Boyd Blackjacks utilized a pair of touchdowns from both Joey Lee and Justin Lee to defeat the previously unbeaten Adrian Dragons 27-6 in Adrian on Friday night.
Joey Lee picked up the first two Blackjack touchdowns, both on one-yard runs. Lee poked his way into the endzone to give Dawson-Boyd a 7-0 lead with 3 minutes, 19 seconds left in the first quarter. He scored again at 8:51 left in the second quarter to extend the Blackjacks lead to 14-0.
Adrian answered back with its only score of the game when Jordan Dingmann scampered eight yards for the score, but Dawson-Boyd entered halftime up 21-6 when Justin Lee scored from six yards out with 31 seconds left in the half.
Both teams went scoreless in the third quarter before Justin Lee closed the book on the Dragons with a 2-yard dive for a touchdown with just 37 seconds left in the game.
Brandon Schmitt had 15 tackles and three sacks for the Dawson-Boyd, which held Adrian to just 146 total yard (16 passing) and only seven first downs. The Blackjacks picked up 210 of their 286 total yards on the ground and had 14 first downs in the game.
Dawson-Boyd (4-1 overall, 4-1 Little Sioux Conference) heads outside of the conference when its travels to Braham on Friday. Adrian (4-1, 4-1) travels to Tracy for a showdown with the Tracy-Milroy-Balaton Panthers.

Worthington 15, Canby 13
Playing a team two classes larger, the fifth-ranked (Class A) Canby Lancers were defeated by a 21-yard fourth quarter field goal by Worthington kicker Will Mulder in a 15-13 Trojan victory Friday night in Canby.
The game was a defensive battle, as Worthington (2-3 overall) had just 124 yards of total offense and Canby was limited to 178.
Canby running back Wyatt Kraus, who entered the game as one of the state's rushing leaders, had 20 carries for 138 yards for the Lancers, but was kept out of the end zone by the Trojan defense.
The Lancers took a 13-6 lead in the third quarter when quarterback Michael Sisk ran in for a 4-yard touchdown, but Worthington responded with a 58-yard touchdown run by running back Brandon Gray. The extra point failed, and Canby held on to a one-point lead until Mulder's game-winning kick.
Canby (4-1) will try to rebound from its first loss of the season next Friday when the Lancers host Minneota/Lincoln HI in a Little Sioux Conference battle.
