Minnetonka (4-0) has to win the Bay Bell sometimes–it’s the law of averages. Wayzata has won the traveling trophy so often in recent years–10 out of 13 times, the Skippers were due.

Add to the law of averages unforced errors in three out of four games and it is clear why Wayzata is having a tough season. After the contest, Head Coach Brad Anderson called the game a team loss according to a Star Tribune article.

Unfortunately, little else would go right for the Trojans the rest of the game. Skipper QB Grant Olson hit Nate Shoemaker for a 45 yard TD to extend the lead to 17-7 in the third quarter.

Another rushing TD late in the 4th by Olson extended the Skipper lead 24-7 to put the game out of reach for the Trojans.
