Northfield – W, 21-17 over No. 1 (5A) Owatonna

The Raiders outlasted top-ranked Owatonna in a thrilling contest on Friday in Northfield. Senior quarterback Lars Prestemon found Alex Rasmussen for a touchdown with 18 seconds to play that gave Northfield the come-from-behind victory.

The scoring play capped a frantic, 90-yard drive that lasted less than a minute with Owatonna leading by three. Prestemon finished with 226 yards and a touchdown through the air. Junior running back Jim Vitito rushed for 110 yards and a score, while also adding 59 receiving yards for the undefeated Raiders.

Northfield’s defense was also impressive. The unit held Huskies junior Jason Williamson to just 102 yards and a 3.1 yards per carry average. The Raiders can clinch the Big Southeast Red subdistrict title and a No. 1 seed in Section 1AAAAA with a win over Rochester Century on Wednesday.
