Rosemount football falls to Edina 17-14; Irish start season 0-2
Rosemount faced yet another tough opponent this week when they traveled to Edina to take on the Hornets. As was the case last week, it was a tight game until the very end but ultimately the Irish lost 17-14. They are now 0-2 on the season but start Metro South sub-district play next week when they host the Eagan Wildcats.
The game started off slowly with no score through the first quarter. Edina was the first on the board when Matt Cavanagh scored on a 1-yard touchdown run and the Hornets led 7-0 heading into halftime.
Rosemount was first to score in the third quarter on a 29-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Max Carter to senior wide receiver Andrew Reuter and tied the game. However, Edina responded with a 12-yard touchdown pass and it was 14-7. Before the end of the third quarter, senior running back Garrison Green scored on a 5-yard touchdown run to once again tie the game. It was tied 14-14 heading into the fourth quarter.
The only score in the fourth quarter was a 26-yard field goal by the Hornets and Edina won 17-14.
Rosemount once again struggled to run the ball, rushing 20 times for 35 yards and touchdown. However, the passing game was clicking as Carter completed 14-of-25 passes for 148 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Junior wide receiver Jonathan Mann led the Irish in receiving with 54 yards on four receptions. Fellow junior Zach Barnick (who recently just received his first offer from the University of Wisconsin- River Falls) had five catches for 34 yards. Reuter had the lone touchdown catch and totaled three receptions for 44 yards.
