Rapids rushes through 'Jacks
October 27, 2023
Cloquet drove the ball to midfield to open the game, but the drive stalled and eventually the ’Jacks punted the ball, pinning Grand Rapids back on their own 12-yard line.
Seven plays later, the Thunderhawks scored as they took a 7-0 lead.
Grand Rapids scored another touchdown in the first minute of the second quarter and before the first quarter ended, the Thunderhawks led it 27-3. Cloquet’s only score in the first half was a 21-yard field goal by Cooper Ellena.
Unfortunately for Cloquet, the Thunderhawks proved to have too much of a ground game as they overpowered the ’Jacks at the line of scrimmage, rushing for more than 400 yards on the ground.
Cloquet did manage three touchdowns in the second half — one each by Jack Battaglia, Jacob Peterson and Warren Heitala.
The Lumberjacks wrapped up the season with a record of 3-6.
