Tigers end Panthers season again

The location, weather conditions and score were different, but the outcome was the same as Belle Plaine rallied to end Glencoe-Silver Lake’s season in the semifinals of the 2AAA football playoffs.
However, whereas the Tigers dominated the Panthers last October on a sunny day at Stevens Seminary Stadium, this year’s matchup was a back-and-forth war of attrition played under ever-increasing rainfall at the Belle Plaine Athletic Complex.
The contest began well for GSL, with Belle Plaine going three-and-out on its opening possession before a bad punt led to the Panthers taking over at the Tigers’ 45-yard line.
A healthy dose of running back Carsen Streich and GSL was on the board as the junior rusher closed out a 10-play drive on a five-yard scoring scamper that made the score 8-0 after what has become a nearly-patented two-point conversion pass from quarterback Luke Frahm to tight end Kyle Christensen.
