The Sunburst Refiners football team lost to North Star 45-24 in last weekend’s action. Coach Jason Hanson said, “Overall, we were flat on both sides of the ball, we need to pick up our intensity this week.”
The Refiners started the game out slow, but managed to tie the game with two minutes to go in the half, but by half-time North Star had taken the lead back. Sunburst had two scoring drives in the first half. Stanley Jarvis had a receiving touchdown and Jaden Koon had a rushing touchdown.
The second half did not go Sunburst’s way. North Star pulled away from the Refiners early. North Star had the momentum and Sunburst couldn’t take it back. Jarvis hauled in another receiving touchdown in the third, and Blake Smylie caught a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter to round out the Sunburst scoring.
Sunburst will travel to Power to play Power/Dut-ton/Brady Saturday. Kickoff is at 1 p.m.
