COLLEGEVILLE — Lester Prairie/Holy Trinity bottled up KMS back Dylan Rudningen—something no other Saints opponent was able to accomplish—and it helped the Bulldogs upend the Section 4A top seed 33-6 on Friday in the section title game at St. John's University.

Rudningen, one of the area's top ground-gainers, was limited to 55 yards on 24 carries, and he scored the Saints' lone TD on an eight-yard run in the second quarter.

KMS' Alex Call hit 6 of 12 passes for 51 yards and Rudningen threw a half-back pass to Isaac Call for 37 yards. Alex Call also intercepted to Bulldogs passes.

LPHT's Michael Ziermann threw for two touchdowns and ran for another Bulldogs' TD.

The Saints finished the season 9-2 overall.
