Johnson Creek knocked off previously unbeaten Randolph in a key Trailways Conference game on Friday. In a back-and-forth affair, Johnson Creek scored on a two-yard Dylan Bredlow keeper with 3:44 left in the game, and Bredlow converted the ensuring two-point run to provide the final 29-28 margin. Bredlow finished with 81 rushing yards and two scores, while Silas Hartz led the team with 21 carries for 148 yards and two touchdowns.
