La Crosse Aquinas, Top-Ranked Team in the State, Cruises to 52-0 Win


Staff Writer

The Aquinas High School football team scored 45 points in the first half and cruised to a 52-0 Coulee Conference victory at Black River Falls on Friday.

The Blugolds (5-0, 3-0) maintained their tie with West Salem for first place in the conference standings behind a big offensive night from senior quarterback Jackson Flottmeyer, who passed for two touchdowns and ran for another.

Flottmeyer completed 7 of 11 passes for 172 yards and connected with sophomore Kyle White on a 62-yard touchdown pass. He has passed for 12 touchdowns and rushed for five this season.

Aquinas junior David Malin carried twice for 52 yards, and Kole Keppel returned an interception 67 yards for another touchdown as the Blugolds, who are ranked second among Small Division schools by The Associated Press, ran their overall winning streak to 21 games and their conference win streak to 10.

Aquinas also ranked number 1 in Division 5 in the state coaches poll in Week 4, and this dominant win is likely to see them remain in the top spot for the Week 5 rankings.
