Marshfield senior Brandon Bell was the Tigers’ lone first-team representative to the 2016 All-Valley Football Association South Division Team.

Bell was one of seven offensive linemen picked to the first team by the conference’s eight head coaches.

Bradon Bohman was the only Tiger picked to the second team. Bohman, a senior, was picked to the second team as a running back and a return specialist. He rushed for 757 yards and five touchdowns, had eight receptions, and returned a kickoff for a touchdown in the season opener against Wausau East.

Marshfield earned eight honorable mention selections – offensive linemen John Roherty and Sam Bauman, defensive lineman Jon Wittman, defensive end Neil Voros, safety Paul Maguire, cornerback Austin Goode, and linebackers Quinton Alexander and Connor Peterson. All but Alexander are seniors.

Maguire was second on the team with 58 tackles, Wittman had five tackles for loss and 4½ sacks, and Voros had four quarterback sacks for Marshfield.

Wisconsin Rapids quarterback Ben Olson was named the VFA South’s Offensive Player of the Year, Fond du Lac defensive lineman Donte Johnson was picked as the VFA South’s Defensive Player of the Year, and Pete McAdams of conference-champion Stevens Point was named Coach of the Year.

FOND DU LAC – Fond du Lac raced out to a four-touchdown lead by halftime and went on to defeat Marshfield 46-14 in the Valley Football Association South Division season finale for both teams on Friday night at Fruth Field.

Fond du Lac led 34-7 at halftime on its way to its sixth win a row.

Marshfield ends its season with a 2-7 record and a 1-7 mark in the VFA South after losing its fifth game in a row. This marks the third-straight season the Tigers have failed to qualify for the WIAA playoffs.

Fond du Lac improves to 7-2 overall and 6-2 in the conference, finishing in sole possession of second place behind VFA South champion Stevens Point. The Cardinals will move on to the WIAA playoffs next week.

Marshfield was limited to 206 yards of total offense, with 137 coming through the air from sophomore quarterback Ryan Krueger.

Krueger threw touchdown passes to Andy Goettl and Mason Coffren for the Tigers’ two scores.

Both Colton Wasielieski (152) and Keon Jefferson (113) had 100-yard rushing games for the Cardinals, with Jefferson scoring three touchdowns.

MARSHFIELD – The defense did what it could to keep the Marshfield football team in the game, but in the end, a lack of offense for the second-straight week was too much to overcome for the Tigers in their homecoming contest..

Marshfield was held to just 114 total yards as it lost its fourth game in a row, falling 21-0 to Oshkosh North in a Valley Football Association South Division game Friday night at Beell Stadium.

Jordan Roen ran for two touchdowns and Cameron Swanson hauled in five passes for 121 yards and a score for North (4-4, 4-3 VFA South), which clinches a spot in the WIAA playoffs with the win.

North took the opening kickoff and drove 89 yards on 14 plays. Despite three false start penalties, the Spartans picked up five first downs on the drive, chewed up the first 5:16 of the game, and scored on a 6-yard run by Roen.

After a three-and-out, the Spartans drove down to the Tigers’ 40 before an interception by Jon Howlett ended te drive.

Marshfield’s offense couldn’t manage much, however, picking up just two first downs in the first half and the 7-0 score held to halftime.

A promising drive for the Tigers to open the second half ended with an interception and North turned around and drove 75 yards in 11 plays with Swanson catching an 28-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Alex Kujawa to make it 14-0.

Marshfield had a drive reach the Spartans’ 14 early in the fourth quarter before an illegal block penalty set the Tigers back and they eventually turned it over on downs at the 20.

North’s final score came on a 6-yard run by Roen with 5:13 to go following a 38-yard pass play from Kujawa to Swanson.

Marshfield (2-6, 1-6 VFA South) will wrap up its season next Friday at Fond du Lac.

MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield football team knew it had a tough road ahead, having to win its final three games of the season to reach the WIAA playoffs.

First up was Stevens Point, a team that suffered its first loss of the season last week in overtime to Wisconsin Rapids, and the Panthers came out determined not to lose two in a row.

The Panthers’ front seven of their defense dominated from the start and limited Marshfield to just 71 total yards and no points as they beat the Tigers 42-0 on Friday night at Beell Stadium.

Marshfield was held to only 31 yards rushing on 30 carries, with only one run going further than five yards from scrimmage.

The Tigers’ passing game didn’t fare much better as quarterbacks Ryan Krueger and Jared Johnsrud alternated plays for much of the game and was held to 41 yards.

Marshfield drops to 2-5 overall and 1-5 in the Valley Football Association South Division, and will miss the postseason for the third straight season.

“(Stevens Point) is one of the best teams in the state. What are you going to do? We went out there and tried,” Marshfield coach Denny Goettl said. “It’s hard to say that they are superior to you, but they are. They’re a good team. In the past we beat them, there were battles and rivalries, and the pendulum is swinging. We have to hope that we get our kids rolling back, we get more kids out.

“It doesn’t happen that we have a great team every year. It just doesn’t. We’re probably in the best in the state of Wisconsin. The top five teams are going to be in the playoffs.”

Joey Hauser hauled in a 4-yard touchdown pass from Beau Rosenthal on a lob pass to the right cornver of the end zone with 2:37 to go in the first quarter, and after a quick three-and-out, Gus Turner-Zick ran 24 yards for a score to put the Panthers (6-1, 5-1 VFA South) up 14-0 after one quarter.

Turner-Zick turned a swing pass from Rosenthal into a 15-yard touchdown with just 1:07 to go in the half and came out of the break hungry, needing to six offensive plays on two separate drives to find pay dirt again.

A 55-yard pass to Turner-Zick led to a 1-yard touchdown run by fullback Brandon Patoka, and Patoka caught a 11-yard TD pass from Rosenthal to push Stevens Point’s lead to 35-0.

Alec Borchardt capped the scoring with a 50-yard fumble return for a score on the final play of the third quarter.

Rosenthal finished 12 of 18 for 223 yards and three touchdowns through the air for Point.

Marshfield hosts Oshkosh North (3-4, 3-3 VFA South) for its homecoming game Oct. 7 at Beell Stadium. The game will begin at 7 p.m. and will be broadcast on WDLB-AM 1450 and wdlbwosq.com.

“We have to win homecoming, that’s what we need to do,” Goettl said. “Oshkosh North has the same record as us and we have to show them that we’re as good as them and hopefully beat them. We’ve got to get some momentum going on our offensive line and do something. We run for five yards, but we can’t break anything. We have no explosive plays and that’s something we have to work on.”

WISCONSIN RAPIDS – The Marshfield football team was left feeling ‘What could have been’ after a tough loss at Wisconsin Rapids High School on Friday night.

Wisconsin Rapids held Marshfield without a score on its last eight possessions and scored twice in the first 3½ minutes of the fourth quarter to pull out a 21-14 victory over the Tigers.

Rapids forced five turnovers, two coming in the decisive fourth quarter, and held the Tigers to minus-3 yards on their final five possessions of the game.

Nash Coombs ran 25 yards for a score with 10:32 to go to tie the game and Ben Olson tossed a 14-yard touchdown strike to Keegan Hewitt with 8:24 left to provide the Raiders (4-1, 3-1 Valley Football Association South Division) with the difference.

“Threw interceptions, penalties, holding, we’re running the football down to the end zone (and) holding…it’s a team effort but you sure feel bad when little things happen,” Marshfield coach Denny Goettl. “It’s high school football, any football, penalties are going to move you back.”

The game couldn’t have started any worse for the Tigers.

Olson, Rapids’ senior quarterback, ran 84 yards on an option play for touchdown on the Raiders’ first play from scrimmage.

On Marshfield’s first play following a short kickoff, Ryan Krueger was intercepted by Zachary Langemeier, setting the Raiders up at the Marshfield 30.

The Tigers defense dug in, however, forcing a three-and-out after a sack by Noah Preston on third down and Marshfield turned that momentum to offense.

Marshfield put together its two scoring drives on back-to-back possessions.

Krueger hit Nathan McGrath for a 42-yard touchdown on third-and-8 to tie the game, and the Tigers put together a 11-play, 87-yard drive to take the lead.

Despite penalties, Marshfield moved the ball into scoring position. Braden Bohman, who rushed for 139 yards on 18 carries, had a 29-yard run on third-and-24, and three plays later Krueger threw an 11-yard touchdown to Andy Goettl, putting the Tigers up 14-7 just 7 seconds into the second quarter.

It was a stalemate from there until the fourth. Marshfield had the ball inside the 40 on its next possession and to the 17 just before halftime, but both drives ended in turnovers.

The Tigers (2-3, 1-3 VFA South) took the opening possession of the second half to the Rapids’ 15 before a holding penalty and a sack stymied the drive and they gave it over on downs at the 33.

After Gage Hergert recovered a fumble for Marshfield, the Tigers brought it down to the 18 but a short pass to Braden Bohman on fourth-and-18 went for only 12 yards.

A defensive holding penalty, followed by an offsides penalty two plays later turned a third-and-23 for Rapids into a first down and on the next play Coombs scored to tie it early in the fourth.

Hewitt’s game-winner followed an interception, and Marshfield turnved the ball over on a fumble with 2:33 to go. Rapids ran out the clock from there.

The Tigers finished with 11 penalties, costing them 86 yards, and five turnovers, not a winning recipe in the torrid VFA South.

“They were moving backers around and got us just where they wanted, not looking at where they were coming from,” Denny Goettl said. “They were hitting us in the backfield. Turnovers, what are you going to do. We’re going to get better and the quarterback (Krueger) is going to get better. I think he’s been playing pretty well, aside from a couple of things.”
