Unbeaten Team Faces Tough Week Four Challenge
Several local high school football teams have made it through the first three weeks of the season without a loss. Owatonna, Blooming Prairie and Medford face varying degrees of resistance as they prepare for the midway point of the season.
Medford has one blowout victory and two come-from-behind triumphs for their first 3-0 start in quite some time. The Tigers go to Mayer-Lutheran (2-1) Friday night. The Crusaders were state semifinalists in 2017 with their only loss this season to top-ten ranked United South Central. The Tigers are getting votes in the AP poll.
Owatonna has sailed to victory in three straight games, even though they spotted Mayo a 9-0 lead in week two. The No. 1 Huskies host Rochester John Marshall (0-3) for homecoming Friday night at 7 pm. The Rockets nearly knocked off top-ten rated Winona in week one then got routed by Northfield and top-five ranked Mankato West.
