Don’t look now, but Minneapolis Henry’s football team is undefeated.
The Patriot’s improved to 4-0 after defeating St. Paul Como Park 28-19 last week at James S. Griffin Stadium in St. Paul. The match-up featured teams in the Twin City Red Division.
Quarterback Todd Johnson threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Laryountae Taylor and ran one yard for another score while Haeveon Wesley (15-yard run) and Javien Versey (six-yard run) each hit pay dirt.
Como Park was led by junior quarterback Robert Adams, who connected with Patrick Corniea for a 21-yard touchdown and ran seven yards for another score, and by William Wooten, who scored from 47 yards out.

Hours before, quarterback Dan Foster hit sophomore Kobe Anderson for a five-yard touchdown that proved to be the difference in St. Paul Johnson’s 22-20 victory over St. Paul Highland Park.
Foster connected on a 35-yard score to Longtoua Yang, completed another pass to Holton Phung for a two-point conversion, ran 18 yards for another score, and added a two-point conversion run to complement a solid ground game by running back Keylan Jackson.
Quarterback Amitri Collins-Westlund accounted for the bulk of Highland Park’s scoring with touchdown runs of 20, 60 and five yards.
Antonio Ortiz rushed for 100 yards on 10 carries for the Scots.
