Christophor Bain rushed for 277 yards and four touchdowns to lead Grand Meadow to the 9-Man State Championship with a 41-21 win over Cleveland/Immanuel Lutheran in Prep Bowl XXXV.
It was the 50th-consecutive victory and fourth-straight title for Grand Meadow (14-0), tying Eden Prairie for the second-longest championship streak in Minnesota high school football history. Another 9-Man program, Stephen Argyle Central, holds the record with five consecutive championships from 2003-2007.
With the Superlarks leading 20-14 at half, Bain busted through the Clippers defense untouched for a 78-yard touchdown run on the first play of the third quarter. Cleveland-IL (13-1) wouldn’t get any closer.
Bain also scored on rushes of 11, 3 and 7 yards.
Grand Meadow never trailed in the game and amassed more than 460 yards of total offense.
