Homecoming In St. Charles: Saints vs. Gophers

    ST. CHARLES ' When Chatfield senior running back Gage Tuohy raced 59 yards for a touchdown with 96 seconds left in Friday night's football game, it put the wraps on a couple of things. Gage's second touchdown sealed the Gophers' 22-6 victory over St. Charles and kept one of the state's oldest athletic trophies right where it was, and it also ended a day of festive events in this town of 3,700 located 25 miles east of Rochester.

    The result of the Week 7 game gave both teams a record of 6-1; they came into the contest holding Top 10 rankings in Class 2A, the Saints at No. 5 and Chatfield at No. 9. The top-ranked team is nearby Caledonia, which handed the Gophers their only loss and will play host to the Saints on Wednesday as the regular season ends.
