After the Hornets took over at the 14-yard line, the Crimson defense held the Hornets to a field goal. Then Senior Isaac Collins took over, scoring the first of three touchdowns giving the Crimson a 6-3 lead after the first quarter. Edina answered in the second quarter when running back Doma Morris scampered 65 yards for a Hornets touchdown. The Crimson answered less than two minutes later when Davison found Will Ampe on a comeback route. Ampe dodged defenders and found the end zone and the Crimson would never trail again. After forcing a three and out, Collins scored his second touchdown from 46 yards with 1:44 left before halftime.
The Hornets scored on their first possession of the second half to cut the lead to 20-16, but the Crimson answered quickly as Davison found tight end Will Reul for a 28-yard touchdown extending the Crimson lead to 27-16. Collins would cap the scoring with a 5-yard run in the fourth quarter, his eighth of the season.
The Crimson (2-1) now play tough road games the next two weeks against top ranked Eden Prairie High School followed by a trip to Lombardi’s old stomping grounds Wayzata High School.
