ROYALTON -- Jordon Rothers ran for 235 yards and collected four of Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg's five touchdowns, but Royalton stuffed the visiting Fighting Saints in the final seconds to pick up a 34-33 Prairie South Conference win Friday.

Rothers scampered 30 yards to get into Royalton (3-2, 5-2) territory late in the game and pass interference call on Royalton gave KMS (2-3, 3-4) the ball at the Royals 11-yard line. But KMS could only reach the Royalton 3 as the Royals notched a sack with 8 seconds left in the game.

Rothers gave KMS a 33-21 lead in the third quarter with a 64-yard TD run before Royalton got a long touchdown run of its own -- 83 yards -- and a short TD run with 4:30 remaining. Royalton managed to gain just 4 first downs in the game, but it had three scoring plays that covered 49, 65 and 83 yards.

KMS ran for 398 yards and collected 23 first downs. Zach Carlson ran for 72 yards and Travis Lamecker gained another 70 on the ground. Quarterback Kyle Baker scored on a keeper from a yard out in the first quarter for KMS' other score.

HBC 50, RCW 12

Jason Mertens, a 270-pounder, lived the lineman's dream on Friday, scoring one of RCW's two touchdowns in a conference loss to Hills-Beaver Creek.

RCW fell to 0-7 in its first year in the 9-man league while HBC, ranked No. 2 in the state, improved to 7-0.

RCW installed a goal-line package that included Mertens this week. In the fourth quarter, facing a 4th-and-2 from the HBC 13 yard line, Mertens carried for 6 yards and the first down. On the next play, Mertens rumbled into the end zone.

Mitch Treml, the area's second-ranked receiver this season, caught a 6 yard pass from quarterback Hayden Johnson for the Jaguars' other TD.
