Another installment of “The Battle for the Paddle” will take place this Friday as Champlin Park visits Anoka in this classic Minnesota rivalry.
Champlin Park is looking at a rebuilding year, as head coach Mike Korton resigned after the 2017 season. New head coach will looking to get his start as head coach off to a great start and what better way to do that than with a win over bitter rival Anoka.
Anoka will try to take advantage of the new system after a disappointing 2017 season. Who will take home the paddle this season?
Champlin Park :21
It was a game full of turnover in this season's "Battle for the Paddle," but Champlin Park eventually pulled it together and defeated rival Anoka 21-0. Four first half turnovers spelled doom early for the Tornadoes from Anoka, but Champlin Park couldn't fully take advantage and put the game away thanks to early turnovers themselves. Finally, the Champlin Park offense got a little momentum, aided by their turnover-producing defense and led by eventual MVP Bennett Otto. The Rebel offense was able to put up 21 unanswered points and close out the game with a dominant victory over Anoka. Champlin Park takes home The Paddle!
