Frankfort finished by halftime in its eight-man Division II season opener against visiting Linn Friday. Hanover won its 39th straight game, and Axtell, Valley Heights and Marysville opened the season with wins.

A large part of Frankfort’s win was Branden Bussmann’s play on the offense. Bussmann had 13 carries for 160 yards and scored four touchdowns. He caught one pass for 19 yards.
