CADOTT – Cadott struck first, but the Spencer/Columbus football team quickly imposed its well against the Hornets.

Spencer/Columbus ripped off 51-straight points and rolled to a 51-24 victory in a Cloverbelt Conference game Friday night at Cadott High School.

Coy Bowe hauled in a 71-yard touchdown pass from Michael Emery 2:59 into the game to put the Hornets (2-4 overall and Cloverbelt Conference) on top 8-0 following a two-point conversion.

It didn’t take long for the Rockets to retaliate.

Hunter Luepke ripped off a 62-yard run less than one minute later, added a 13-yard touchdown run 45 seconds after that, and Jarred Mandel threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to Lukas Ellefson to put the Rockets (5-1 overall and Cloverbelt Conference) up 22-8 after one quarter.

Evan Dieringer kicked a 25-yard field goal, Luepke scored from 1 yard out, and Nate Karau returned an interception for a touchdown in the second quarter as the Rockets built a 37-8 lead by halftime.

“Credit to Cadott for a hard-fought game,” Spencer/Columbus coach Jason Gorst said. “They are an up-and-coming program that is on the verge of upsetting somebody. Their kids are playing hard, they are well-coached, and they have things going in the right direction.”

“Nate Karau had a great game on both sides of the ball,” Gorst said. “He was a game-changer tonight. Hunter had great vision and cut well.”

Luepke added an 84-yard touchdown run and Carson Hildbrandt scampered in from 42 yards away to finish the scoring for Spencer/Columbus in the third quarter.

Luepke finished with an astounding 249 yards rushing on just 11 carries.

Cadott scored twice in the fourth quarter.

Spencer/Columbus plays at Eau Claire Regis on Thursday, Sept. 28. The game, at Carson Park, begins at 7 p.m. and will be broadcast on WDLB-AM 1450 and wdlbwosq.com. Regis edged Colby in overtime on Friday, improving to 5-1 overall and 4-1 in the Cloverbelt.

SPENCER – The streak is over.

The Spencer volleyball team’s run of five-straight undefeated Cloverbelt Conference East Division seasons is done as the Rockets lost to Marshfield Columbus Catholic 3-1 on Tuesday night at Spencer High School.

Columbus Catholic, which took Spencer to five games in last year’s match before faltering, is now 3-0 in the Cloverbelt East, while the Rockets drop to 2-1.

Spencer last lost a Cloverbelt East match on Sept. 6, 2011, at Owen-Withee. The Rockets went on to win eight-straight conference matches that season and went all the way to the WIAA Division 3 state tournament championship match, which they lost to Oostburg. The Rockets’ conference winning streak reached 45 before Tuesday’s loss.

The Rockets played Columbus tough in the first game, and won the second set, but couldn’t keep up in the final two games.

Columbus won 25-23, 22-25, 25-10, 25-19, behind strong play defensively. Spencer had numerous chances to earn points but was denied time and again by the Dons’ backrow. Libero Annie Baierl had 25 digs, and Maren Seefluth and Katie Hall each had 20 digs to lead the way for Columbus.

Brooke Neider had 40 assists, Kenzie Hansen had 16 kills, and Jessica Jakopin had 10 kills and six blocks for the Dons.

Lexi Baehr topped Spencer with 12 kills and 26 digs, and Sadie Mercier had 24 digs and 23 assists in the loss.

“As soon as we got over the nervousness, they played great,” Columbus Catholic coach Kat Egle said. “It’s Spencer, we never beat them, so this was pretty big for them.”

Spencer led the first set 23-21 after a kill by Shelbi Hoefs only to see the Dons rob the game with four-straight points. A long volley on the final point ended with a Spencer error as Columbus won 25-23.

The Rockets regrouped and led for most of Game 2, pulling out to a 23-13 lead after a kill from Baehr.

Columbus mounted a comeback and a tip-kill from Neider cut the Rockets’ lead to 23-21, but Spencer was able to finish off a 25-22 win on a kill from Shaelee Neitzel.

From that point, it was all Dons.

Columbus ripped off five-straight points to take an 18-7 lead and won 25-10 as Kate Turchi served the final four points.

Game 4 was tighter, with the Rockets tying the score five different times, but the Dons were always able to rebound.

An ace from Hansen and a kill by Jakopin gave the Dons some breathing room at 22-16 and they finished off a 25-19 win on the serve of Hall.

“Our back row, our defense, is our go-to this year,” Egle said. “It’s a little different than last year with the big offensive team we had. We’re a little smaller this year, but we’re making it work. The girls are adjusting with our defense. We have a smaller block than we have in the past. They’re moving their feet, their digging well.”

For Spencer, it’s time to regroup. A largely inexperience squad has been up and down over the first four weeks of the season, but with another month left before the WIAA playoffs, there is plenty of time for the Rockets to continue to improve.

“We had too many unforced errors,” Spencer coach Buff Heller said. “They’re a good team. You just can’t give them that many free points.

“We started and were kind of a mess the first week and a half. They keep getting better and better, and learning. We’re not a young team, but we’re an inexperienced team. Our goal now is to take second in the conference, because I think that (Columbus) is probably the best team.”

Both teams return to Cloverbelt East action on Thursday. Spencer is at Greenwood, while Columbus Catholic will play at Colby. Both matches start at 7:15 p.m.

SPENCER – The high-octane Spencer/Columbus offense was on full display Friday night at Ted Fritsch Field.

After an interception on its first play, the Rockets need just 11 offensive plays to score four touchdowns and take control of the game as they cruised past previously unbeaten Colby 57-14 in a Cloverbelt Conference football game at Spencer High School.

Spencer/Columbus needed just five plays to drive 50 yards for its first score – a 3-yard run by Hunter Luepke.

Colby responded as Alex Schmitt returned the kickoff 59 yards to the 27 and the Hornets scored four plays later on a 9-yard touchdown pass from Christian Raasch to Lucas Bruesewitz.

From that point on, it was all Rockets.

Luepke raced 43 yards for a touchdown on SC’s first play after the kickoff, then after a three-and-out and a punt, Jacob Miller went 53 yards for another Rockets’ touchdown to put them up 22-6.

After another three-and-out by the SC defense, Jarred Mandel completed three passes for 50 yards, the final 10 going to Luepke for another touchdown and the Rockets (4-1 overall and Cloverbelt Conference) had a 29-6 lead after one quarter.

“I thought our guys got off to a real good start and overall played really well,” SC coach Jason Gorst said. “I thought we were really quick to the edge and the defense was swarming and hard-hitting all night long. It was a very good game.”

It was much the same for the Rockets in the second quarter as they scored on all three of their possessions.

Miller ran 57 yards for a touchdown, Luepke had a 29-yard touchdown run, and Carson Hildebrandt ran in from 5 yards out to put SC up 50-6 at halftime.

“Our game plan was to outside and we accomplished that,” Luepke said of the sweep plays that were working all night against the Hornets. “We got quite a bit of touchdowns on those plays. We always love starting quick.”

Hayden Bauman finished the scoring for the Rockets with a 55-yard scamper with 4:17 to go in the third quarter.

Miller finished with 138 yards rushing and two touchdowns on just four carries, Luepke added another 118 yards rushing on eight carries and also caught four passes for 87 yards and scored four times.

Spencer/Columbus’ defense was just as impressive, forcing two fumbles and holding Colby (4-1, 3-1 Cloverbelt Conference) to just 75 rushing yards on 27 carries.

“We are doing a couple of things different (with the sweep play) this year, blocking a little bit differently, so we looked at some film to see the way they (Colby) defended us last year,” Gorst said. “We tried to use our speed, we have that as an asset for us, and we blocked the edge pretty well.”

Spencer/Columbus hits the road for its next two games Sept. 22 at Cadott and Sept. 28 at Eau Claire Regis.

Rockets 57, Hornets 14
