The Red Knights couldn't muster enough offense against Irondale on Friday.
Knights proved superior to Red Knights on Friday. The Irondale Knights (4-1 overall, 4-0 in North Suburban Conference) topped the Benilde-St. Margaret's Red Knights (2-3 overall, 2-3 NSC) 20-14 on Friday night in BSM's homecoming game. BSM actually led 14-7 at halftime, but the second half proved frustrating as the Red Knights didn't score again. Irondale tied the game with a 5-yard touchdown run by Justus Canfield in the third quarter, then took the lead on a 61-yard dash by AJ Myles midway through the fourth. Junior quarterback Keaton Studsrud kept the Red Knights in the game with 246 passing yards and a score, completing 22 of 38. A bulk of those throws went to junior Sam Lynch, who caught 11 balls for 122 yards. BSM will host Chisago …

The Red Knights look energized after their big win against Orono last week. Can they upset the 8-1 Spring Lake Park Panthers Friday night?
Benilde-St. Margaret’s (5-4, North Suburban Conference) vs. Spring Lake Park (8-1, North Suburban Conference) in the Section 6AAAA championship game. PLAYMAKERS RED KNIGHTS WIN IF...

Red Knights' second-half collapse Wednesday ends in 46-37 loss to Chisago Lakes in season finale.
Benilde-St. Margaret's (3-4 North Suburban Conference, 4-4 overall) opened the second half against Chisago Lakes (4-3, 4-4) Wednesday with a long kick-off return and a 36-yard touchdown scamper by sophomore quarterback Keaton Studsrud to go up 31-14, conceivably putting the game away. But the Wildcats responded by scoring 32 of the game's next 38 points to stun the Red Knights 46-37 at BSM Stadium in the final game of the regular season. "(Chisago Lakes) came after us (in) the second half and did some really good things," BSM co-head coach Jon Hanks said. "They got back to their bread-and-butter stuff that they really enjoy, which is smash-mouth football. We didn't respond." The Red Knights were led by Studsrud (112 rushing yards and a …
