It turned out to be another lopsided, 62-0 win  for Minneota Friday night, but it meant the world to quarterback Beau Buysse.
Coming off a loss to Dawson-Boyd, in which, “We played a below average game and they played probably the best game they’ll ever play,” this quickly scheduled game with Lester Prairie-Winsted Holy Trinity was important to the Vikings.


“We just came out with a lot of emotion and just had to re-group a little bit. We came back and played with a lot of emotion tonight,” Buysse said.
“Feel better now?” Buysse was asked.
“A little bit,” he answered.
Fact is, “A lot of us guys had something to prove,” Buysse said.
He was happy to have this “extra” game to play despite Renville County West’s forfeit. If they hadn’t played, “I would have just sat there with this bad feeling in my stomach, hurting for two weeks.”
As it turned out, Buysse threw nine of 12 passes with one interception for 138 yards, rushed for another 44 yards, scored two touchdowns and threw a touchdown pass.

Brandon Anderson had another yeoman’s day battering the line 12 times for 177 yards. He also scored three touchdowns.
