The Irish received the opening kick and started play on their own 38-yard line. Maple Lake ran to a couple of quick first downs, but a holding call helped short-change the drive and they were forced to punt.

Irish keep rolling with win over BBE

by Dave Schroeder
On a cool, crisp, clear October evening the Irish gridders traveled west to Jaguar country to take on Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa in Central Minnesota Conference action. The locals came home with a hard-fought, penalty-filled, 21-6 victory to move their season record to 4-1.
On Maple Lake’s first series of downs it took only three plays to get on the board. On a third-and-five Cam Knudsen hit Brian Redemske on a pass and he sprinted 89 yards to pay dirt. The kick was good by Forrest Coughlin and the Irish jumped out to an early 7-0 lead.

Irish shut down by EV-W Eagles

by Dave Schroeder
On a cool, wet, sloppy Friday evening, the Irish invaded Eagle territory to kick off CMC play for the 2010 season. This game had a somewhat big build-up as both teams have been mentioned as a conference favorite this year. The game, however, did not live up to the hype as Eden Valley-Watkins and its stingy defense shut out the Irish 28-0 in the mud.
