29-0 Second Half Leads Cannon Falls Football to Victory
The Cannon Falls Bombers took awhile to get started Thursday night in Zumbrota but when the dust settled the Bombers had a 36-13 win. The Bombers are coming off a season when they went to the state tournament. Head Coach Danny Meyers told KDHL during the Cannon Falls Coaches Show last Saturday many of the key players from the state team are gone but the cupboard is definitely not bare.

Cannon Falls answered with a 34 yard run by Trenton Matthies with 4:22 to go in the first half. Sam Ludden booted the extra point. With 2:38 left in the second quarter Cougars junior quarterback William Holm hit senior receiver Zach Hutton for a 74 yard touchdown pass. Z-M converted the extra point to take a 13-7 halftime lead.
