Totino-Grace sends Prior Lake packing

| No Comments

Three touchdown passes propelled the Totino-Grace Eagles to a 21-17 win over Prior Lake in the Class AAAAA quarterfinal Friday.

Totino-Grace standout Andy Moritko carried the team in the second half, intercepting a Prior Lake pass, hauling in a touchdown pass to tie the score and anchoring a defensive stand that forced a late Prior Lake field goal, reported the Star Tribune.

"As a senior, you feel you help carry the team," Moritko said. "It feels great to finally be at the top."

According to the Pioneer Press, Prior Lake pulled to within 21-17 with 4:54 remaining in regulation on a 19-yard field goal by Kirk Lair. The Lakers had to settle for a field goal after their drive stalled at Totino-Grace's 2-yard line.

"It's really tough right now," Lakers coach Matt Gegenheimer said. "We came a long way this season, and our guys played tough. We didn't make the plays when we needed to.''
