Irondale at home in week eight

The Irondale High School football team has a chance to head into the post-season with some momentum. The Knights host a Park Center team that hasn’t won a game since week one of the regular season.

Both teams have only one win each so far this season and Irondale is playing at home. 

Park Center lost its sixth game in a row by falling 29-21 last week to previously winless St. Louis Park. Irondale beat St. Louis Park in week six 32-14.

Irondale dropped its week-seven match-up against sixth-ranked Robbinsdale Cooper 28-7. Despite the loss, the Knights held Cooper to its second-lowest point-total of the season.

Cooper took control with a pair of short first-quarter touchdown runs and also scored in the third quarter on a fumble recovery. 

Irondale’s lone touchdown came late in the third quarter when Brendan White hit Sean Sutherlin for a 27-yard touchdown pass. 

The Hawks closed out the scoring on a short touchdown run early in the fourth quarter.
