The Highland Park Scots faced the Central Minutemen at Central for the annual Musket Bowl.  The Scots arrived at James Griffen stadium a full hour before the Minutemen made their flashy entrance 15 minutes before the game began.

In the second quarter, Amitri Collins scored a touchdown making it 14-7 at half.

In the third quarter, Opi Aghenu, of the Minutemen, scored his second touchdown tying the game at 14-14.

In the 4th quarter the Scots drove down the field and scored another touchdown.  The Scots held on defensively for a 21-14 victory.

The Scots are heating up after their 1-3 start, winning their last 4 straight, including the Musket Bowl.  The Scots now have a chance to make history and enter the state tournament as they play Fridley once again in the section finals.
