DAWSON — Dawson-Boyd needed a retooled approach in the second half to survive Canby’s upset bid in the Section 5A semifinals on Saturday at RD Clay Field.

The Lancers posted three first-half scores and led by 13 at halftime before the 9-1 Blackjacks rebounded with 18 unanswered second-half points to win 25-20.

The Blackjacks, the 2011 state champions, will seek their third straight berth in the Class A state tournament against section newcomer Wabasso in the section title game at 2:30 p.m. Friday at Southwest Minnesota State in Marshall.

Dalton Palmer, who was seriously injured in last season’s playoff game against Canby, was D-B’s offensive star on Saturday.

He carried 13 times for 142 yards and 1 touchdown, and he caught two Joey Lee passes for 130 yards and TDs of 60 yards to open the scoring and 70 yards for the game-winning points.

Lee, who threw for 229 yards, also threw a 29-yard scoring pass to Michael Lee.

Trailing 20-7 at half, Palmer got the Blackjacks rolling with a 14-yard TD run, Lee and Lee hooked up to pull them within a point, and Palmer’s long TD catch-and-run sealed the comeback.
