Rocori at Becker
7 p.m., Friday, Sept. 15
Rocori last met Becker in the 2014 Class 4A state semifinals, where the Spartans lost 24-0. Both teams risk unblemished records in Friday's rematch.
The sixth-ranked Spartans (2-0, 1-0) travel to face the No. 7-4A Bulldogs (2-0, 1-0) this week.
The Bulldogs (2-0, 1-0) are averaging 56 points per game this year, led by sophomore quarterback Josh Fobbe (445 passing yards, 11 total TDs), running back Sidney Boros (304 all-purpose yards, three total TDs) and wide receiver Lucas Dertinger (117 receiving yards, five TDs).
They can expect the sixth-ranked Spartans (2-0, 1-0) to put the ball in the hands of junior running back Matt Koshiol (312 rushing yards, two TDs), who has found success thanks to an offensive line led by 6-foot-8, 335-pound North Dakota-commit Matt Waletzko.
The teams joined the North Central subdistrict this season, along with powerhouse Hutchinson. Hutchinson and Becker combined to win all four Class 4A titles from 2012-2015.
