Although Jason Williamson and the Owatonna running game have dominated the headlines this season for the defending champions, the Huskies' defense stole the show during their 39-8 semi-final victory over Elk River.
It was the second time the two teams have met in the state tournament in the last two years. Last season Owatonna dominated the Elks in the Prep Bowl – winning 63-26. The 2018 version started much the same.
A failed onside kick by Elk River set Owatonna up in Elks' territory. The Huskies gave the ball to Williamson three times in a row. The third run went for a 26-yard touchdown run on the first drive of the game. The sweep to the outside gives the Huskies a 6-0 lead.
The Owatonna defense would flex its muscle their first time on the field. Elk River faced a 4th and 5, and the Huskies' Zach Stransky made a tackle for loss giving the ball back to the offense at the 30.
On a third and two near mid-field, Williamson ran off tackle. He showed speed down the sidelines for a 44-yard touchdown and a 12-0 lead.
