Football KoMets bested by Stewartville; Bears, Vikings, Cobras win

Kasson-Mantorville’sfoot- ball team battled a powerful Stewartville squad last Friday, October 8, and the Tigers outlasted the KoMets, 28-21.

Quarterback Matthew Donovan was the impetus for K-M’s offensive attack, as he was involved in all three of the KoMets touch- downs. Donovan hit senior Gavin Giesler for a 25-yard TD pass, which knotted the score at 7-7, early.

Then after falling behind by two scores at the half, Donovan led a 12-play scoring drive for K-M late in the third, chewing up nearly six minutes before an 8-yard touchdown run on fourth- and-goal brought the KoMets back within a touchdown. Donovan finished with 52 yards on 16 attempts. Teammate senior Anthony Moe-Tucker led the KoMets with 74 yards on eight carries.
