Tigers win on a safety in the final minutes as Bluejay RB Grant Petersen was tackled in the end zone.  B-F had the ball at the 1 yard line after Adam Van Ersvelde downed a Luke Honnold.  Honnold then recovered the Bluejay onside kick.  B-F led 14-0 on 2 Petersen TD's.  Ethan Cline filled in for the sick Jake Simon and ran for 86 yards and 2 TD.  The 2nd TD was on the first drive of the third quarter, set up by a 54 yard pass from Cade McKnight to Clay Harris.  The safety was credited to LB Scotty Burnell as the Tiger defense held Petersen to 110 yards.  Grinnell is now 1-3 overall, 1-1 in the district.  Bondurant Farrar is 2-2 and 1-1.
