MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Jason Schade rushed for 123 yards and two touchdowns Friday afternoon as Glencoe-Silver Lake ran past Albany 21-0 in the Class 3A championship.
Schade, one of four Panthers backs to rush for more than 500 yards this season, scored on runs of 70 and 2 yards as Glencoe-Silver Lake won its first-ever state title.
The Panthers (14-0), ranked first in the final AP regular-season poll, jumped to a quick lead just like they did all season. Glencoe-Silver Lake outscored its opponents 149-8 in the first quarter.
The Panthers intercepted Albany's Cory Schiffler four times and held the Huskies' two 1,000-yard running backs -- James Lehner and Dustin Reding -- to 26 yards apiece. No. 2 Albany (13-1) was averaging 35 points per game.
Dan Resch threw a 15-yard scoring strike to Nic Adrian on an inside screen pass late in the first quarter to put the Panthers up 6-0.
Then on the second play of the Panthers' next possession, Schade raced untouched for a 70-yard score. Tim Vos ran in the conversion attempt to make it 14-0.
