Holmen takes care of Sparta to remain unbeaten in MVC football

  • Updated

SPARTA — The Holmen High School football team controlled all three phases of the game as it rolled to a 56-3 victory over Sparta on Friday night.

Senior quarterback Tyler Anderson got the offense rolling with two first-quarter touchdown runs, Dillon Martinez added a 77-yard punt return for a score and the Vikings (5-0, 3-0 MVC) defense held the Spartans (0-5, 0-2) to just 144 total yards.

“It was pretty much a team effort,” Holmen coach Steve King said. “We tried to spread the wealth out a little bit.”

King noted the special teams effort in particular, which led to Martinez’ touchdown and a perfect 6-of-6 effort on extra points by senior kicker Quachee Vang.

“That’s big. We’ve been working a little bit harder on that this week,” King said. “The blocking was outstanding on the punt return.”

Anderson paced the offense with 141 yards on 11 carries, and also completed 2-of-3 passes for 79 yards, both to Greg Rooney.

“He had a real nice game,” King said of Anderson, “ and after that, it was kind of a little bit of everything by a lot of different people.”

Mitch Dienger scored twice and picked up 53 yards on 13 carries for Holmen, who met playoff criteria by ensuring at least a .500 playoff record. Chris Magnuson went 74 yards for a touchdown on his lone touch of the game.
