MLA closes gap, drops home football opener to H-BC

Patriot player seriously injured


THE MOUNTAIN LAKE Area (MLA) Wolverine football squad under Head Coach Tim Kirk closed the gap in the fourth quarter, but the comeback was just not enough, the Maroon-and-Silver dropping their home opener at Munson Field on Friday, September 8 to Hills-Beaver Creek (H-BC), 28-20. More importantly than the loss or the win is the serious injury suffered by Patriot player Trenton Bass. According to friends of the injured player’s parents, Trenton suffered a very serious neck injury. Mountain Lake Ambulance Squad members transported Trenton by ambulance to Windom Area Hospital, where he was taken to a Sioux Falls, South Dakota hospital. Trenton broke the C5 and C6 vertebrae in his neck. He had surgery Friday night to fix the broken vertebrae. The surgery went smoothly. It’s hard at this point to know if he will make a full recovery. As of right now he is able to move his arms and he has feeling through most of his arms and fingers. There is no feeling from the breastbone down at this point.  MLA is now 1-1 on the season and travel to Edgerton on Friday, September 15 to take on Edgerton/Ellsworth (E/E).
