The Pirates picked up their first win of the season a week ago, this week the task will get a little tougher as they go on the road to face St. Croix Falls. The Saints come in at 3-1 on the season, having split their first two Lakeland Conference games. Grantsburg knocked off St. Croix Falls a year ago 22-15.

Steve Linzmeier will have to call on 105.7 Classic Hits beginning around 7pm.

Grantsburg is fresh off a 38-14 win over the Webster Tigers. Daniel Larson threw for three touchdowns in the win. Nolan Hanson hauled in two of the scoring plays. Cody Benedict, filling in for the injured Lucas Willis (thumb), scored his first touchdown on the year and continually churned out yards on the ground up the middle.

The Saints have won three of their first four games. Their only loss came in the conference opener against Cameron, 28-16. Last week, St. Croix Falls scorched Flambeau in the opening half with four touchdowns all over 29 yards, en route to a 24-8 win.

Steve Linzmeier and Coach Keith Lehne discuss the win over Webster after the game.
