Joel Bauman ran for 283 yards and four touchdowns as Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg steamrolled the Eagle football team, 46-7, in a match-up between Prairie Conference North and South teams on Friday night at Smith Field in New York Mills.

Bauman scored on runs of 35, 3, 1 and 76 yards. Aaron Doraska ran for touchdowns of 16 and 49 yards for the Fighting Saints in his only carries. Jonah Johnson hauled in a 22-yard touchdown pass from Jake Armstrong in the opening quarter for the other K-M-S touchdown.

The Fighting Saints' defense limited New York Mills to 177 yards of total offense.

Mills scored their first touchdown of the season in the fourth quarter when quarterback Tanner Wegscheid scored from three yards out.

K-M-S (2-1, 0-1 Prairie-South), the defending Class A State Champs, has now won four-straight against NY Mills.

The Eagles (0-3, 0-1 Prairie-North) will head to Sebeka this week as they hope to end their 20-game losing streak against United North Central (1-2, 1-0 Prairie-North).
