First report

Chaska quarterback Justin Bach scored three rushing touchdowns in a 27-20 overtime win over Robbinsdale Armstrong on Wednesday at Robbinsdale Armstrong High School.

Bach’s third and final touchdown — from 7 yards out — was the overtime-winner. The senior finished the night with 80 passing yards.

Chaska (5-3, 3-1) sophomore kicker Nic Snuggerud opened the scoring with a 34-yard field goal followed by a 44-yard boot. The Hawks finished the first half with a Bach 3-yard run to make it 13-6.

Bach scored his second touchdown on the ground while junior running back Matthew Kuntz ran for more than 100 yards including two runs of at least 20 yards.

Armstrong (4-4, 3-0) had most of its offense run through junior quarterback Jake Breitbach. He got the Falcons on the board in the first half with a 36-yard touchdown run.

In the second half, Breitbach continued to carry Armstrong both on the ground and in the air, finding senior running back Nathan Perttula for a touchdown. Breitbach led a rally and threw a 79-yard game-tying touchdown to senior receiver Tyler Everson with less than two minutes remaining in regulation.

Breitbach finished the game with 256 yards in the air and 107 yards on the ground.
