Class 5A

Cretin-Derham Hall 49, Central 17: Miles Bollinger threw five touchdown passes — two to Monteff Dixon — while Tommy Sticha scored a pair of touchdowns on his own as the Raiders moved into the Section 4 final, where they’ll meet top-seeded Mahtomedi.

Bollinger completed 8 of 10 passes for 215 yards.

Second-seeded Central (7-3) jumped out to a 7-0 lead on a 1-yard scoring plunge from Lavontae Cox in the opening frame, but the third-seeded Raiders (5-5) responded with 21 points in the second frame.

Cretin-Derham Hall has won four straight games after falling to 1-5 in the middle of the fall.

Mahtomedi 47, Tartan 14: In the first quarter alone, Charles Brandt completed three touchdown passes to Michael Barry tallying 124 yards. In that same frame, Cole Saenger ran in a touchdown and recorded a safety on defense.

Mahtomedi (5-4) will host Cretin-Derham Hall in the Section 4 final after defeating the Raiders 34-18 earlier this month.

Jerror Borsay tallied both touchdowns for Tartan (3-7) — a 17-yard run and a 94-yard kickoff return.

Bloomington Jefferson 17, Apple Valley 13: Jonathan Weber rushed in the go-ahead touchdown from nine yards out with 74 seconds to play to push the second-seeded Jaguars (8-1) through to the Section 3 final, where they’ll face St. Thomas Academy.

Apple Valley (4-6) trailed 10-0 with a minute to play in the third, but rallied to take the lead on the strength of a pair of Jackson Thornburgh touchdown passes.

Chisago Lakes 31, Simley 7: Simley’s Class 4A state title defense came to a crashing halt Saturday. The Spartans (6-4) struck first on an 11-yard scoring strike from Timothy Pietsch to Andre Levros. It was all Wildcats from there.

Carson Langevin ran in a pair of scores for Chisago Lakes (8-2).

Hill-Murray 51, Johnson 0: The Pioneers (7-2) will host Chisago Lakes next week in the Section 4 title game after the section’s top seed tallied 42 second-quarter points Saturday.
