Minneota 28, Fillmore Central 27: Fillmore Central scored the game’s final 20 points in Saturday’s state semifinal, but needed 22.

On the third of its three consecutive touchdowns — the last coming with 3 minutes, 15 seconds to play to trim Minneota’s once 28-7 lead to just one point — Fillmore Central decided to go for a potential go-ahead two-point conversion. It was unsuccessful.

Fillmore Central (12-1) got the ball back for a final potential winning drive, and worked the ball down inside the Minneota 20-yard-line on the strength of a 35-yard heave from Dillon O’Connor to Bryce Corson on a 4th-and-30 play. But Fillmore Central lost six yards from there, and O’Connor’s 4th-and-16 pass attempt on the final play of regulation fell incomplete.

O’Connor finished with four touchdowns — two on the ground and two passing — while Corson tallied 10 catches for 183 yards and a score. Zack Fier notched 23 carries for 136 yards for the Vikings (11-2), while Isaac Pohlen had one passing touchdown and one rushing touchdown.

Springfield 54, Deer River 30: Jakob Nachreiner completed 20 of his 24 passing attempts for 339 yards and five touchdowns as Springfield’s passing game proved too much for Deer River.

MaCoy Krick caught four balls for 136 yards and two touchdowns, and Carter Olson added eight catches for 107 yards and a pair of scores as Springfield (11-2) posted 40 points in the first half alone.

Deer River (12-1) scored 24 first-half points in its best attempt to keep pace. Sam Rahier threw for 174 yards and two touchdowns, and Deer River ran for 185 yards on 35 carries.

Minneota and Springfield will meet in the Class A final at 10 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 2 at U.S. Bank Stadium.
