St. Edward senior Brayden Olson may want to relax a little bit over the holiday weekend after all the work he put in Friday night.
Olson put on a show Friday night as the St. Edward Beavers topped Harvard 59-30.
Olson had 24 carries for an incredible 358 yards and six touchdowns. His long run of 62 yards helped his average of 14.9 yards per carry. He also added 14 yards receiving on the night.
Olson and fellow senior Keenan Rasmussen gave the Beavers a duo that was too much for Harvard to handle. Rasmussen added 180 yards of his own on just nine carries. He added three touchdowns for the Beavers.
As a team, the Beavers rushed for 553 yards.
Quarterback Jonah Micek didn't need to do much on the night with Olson and Rasmussen putting in the work they did, going three for five for 34 yards.
The game was a close contest in the first half, with St. Edward holding a slim 25-24 lead going into halftime. However, their unstoppable rushing attack led to 27 points in the third to pull away for good.
The defense locked down in the second half for the Beavers, led by Rasmussen, Olson and Evan Roberts. Rasmussen gathered 14 total tackles. Roberts added 12 while Olson added 10 tackles and an interception.
The Beavers will take their high-powered rushing attack to Heartland Lutheran next Thursday.
