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.

Donovan finished with 52 yards on 16 attempts. Teammate senior Anthony Moe-Tucker led the KoMets with 74 yards on eight carries.
