Marshfield football routs Wausau West in home opener

MARSHFIELD – Marshfield scored on five of its six first-half possessions on its way to a 42-14 rout of Wausau West in a nonconference football game Friday night at Beell Stadium.

Elliot Ashbeck tossed four touchdown passes in the first half and Riley Gebelein ran for 147 yards and two scores to lead the Tigers, who improve to 2-0. West falls to 1-1.

Marshfield’s offense was clicking early as it scored on all three of its possessions in the first quarter.

After a 49-yard return of the opening kickoff by Gebelein, the Tigers needed just three plays to go the remaining 48 yards for their first touchdown – a 14-yard run by Gebelein.

After a three-and-out by West, Marshfield went 55 yards in nine plays. Ashbeck completed 3 of 4 passes on the drive, including an 8-yard scoring strike to Austin Littmann, who spun out of a tackle on a bubble screen pass and cruised into the end zone.

Marshfield made it 21-0, taking just four plays to go 57 yards as Ashbeck hit fullback Caleb Cline across the middle on a bootleg and Cline raced down the right sidelines for the score.

“We played, probably, a little bit better than we did last week,” Marshfield coach Denny Goettl said. “We’ve got six or seven receivers and we already moved three of them to defensive back because we have two guys injured. We have some kids that can be perimeter players for us.”

West used an 88-yard kickoff return by Brett Peters to set up a 6-yard touchdown pass from Jordan Huehnerfuss to Josh Knab with 8 seconds left in the quarter.

The Tigers continued to dominate. After a fumble stopped Marshfield’s first drive of the second quarter, Marshfield went 80 yards in five plays to score again. Ashbeck hit Littmann on a post pattern for a 30-yard touchdown to make it 28-7.

Trevor Peterson earned his second sack of Huehnerfuss and this time forced a fumble, which was recovered by Justin Sternweis at the Marshfield 38. Five plays later, Ryan Trierweiler hauled in a screen pass from Ashbeck and ran 27 yards for another score, putting the Tigers up 35-7 at halftime.

“The words we use are compete and commitment and I hope it’s getting through to the kids,” Goettl said. “They’re sticking together and believing in each other. You can’t coach speed. Riley’s a 100-meter sprint guy, so when he gets out in the open, it’s nice to see him run. Austin, you see him catch a hitch and the kid can move and scoot, so we love to throw him some short stuff and letting him just go.”

As explosive as the Tigers’ offense was, racking up 290 yards and five touchdowns in the first half, the defense was equally impressive.

Marshfield held West to 105 yards in the first half, had three sacks and forced a fumble.

Peterson and the Tigers’ defensive line created constant pressure on Huehnerfuss, and held West to 13 yards rushing in the opening two quarters.

“I was coming around on the outside and going full speed, putting the rip move on and they didn’t really have much to stop me,” Peterson said.

The dominance continued in the second half. Brandon Baltus and Zach Schwanz intercepted passes on West’s first two possessions.

After the second pick, Gebelein sliced through the Warriors defense for a 53-yard touchdown run, pushing him over the 100-yard mark for the second straight game.

West running back Kallen Bentz ran 66 yards for a touchdown on the Warriors’ next possession, and that finished the scoring.

Now Marshfield turns to Valley Football Association action, playing against Oshkosh North at Titan Stadium in Oshkosh next Friday. The first game in their new conference brings about some new challenges for the Tigers.

“I’m expecting the same thing as the Valley, some hard teams to play,” Peterson said. “We’re just ready to show them what Marshfield’s all about.”

MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield boys soccer team did not score a goal in its first three games of the season, but it ended that scoreless streak quickly on Thursday.

Eli Oba scored just 5:25 into the game and the goal propelled the Tigers to a 3-1 win over previously unbeaten Wausau West in a Wisconsin Valley Conference tilt at Griese Park.

Oba scored off an assist from Austin Gilbert, and 13 minutes later Gilbert scored on an assist by Matt McCann to push the Tigers to a 2-0 lead.

Alex Kelnhofer put Marshfield up 3-0 with a goal off a deflection in front of the net at the 5:35 mark of the second half.

West, playing its Wisconsin Valley Conference opener, scored at the 54:53 on a goal by Dustin Buchberger, but Marshfield allowed minimal scoring opportunities for the Warriors the rest of the way and closed out the victory to improve to 1-3 and 1-1 in the WVC.

“I made a point at practice (Wednesday) to tell them, ‘If you don’t think you’re going to score, you’re not going to score; if you don’t think you’re going to win, you’re not going to win,’” Marshfield coach Ron Todryk said. “We needed to go out there with a positive attitude. The mental aspect is just as important as the physical aspect. You have to have confidence. As coaches, we do, so you need to as well.”

Todryk said he was pleased with both aspects of the game, and how much the Tigers have improved over the course of the first two weeks of the season.

“We made some wonderful passes – six, seven, eight passes getting the ball down the field,” Todryk said. “Chemistry on the team is definitely building. They are getting better game by game. As a coach, when you see that happening, you know things are going to happen in the right way.”

Defensively, Todryk pointed specifically to the play of Bobby Leggon and Nick Guzowski, who held reigning WVC player of the year Elliot Markqardt without a goal.

“They did a great job of shutting him down, keeping their marks on him,” Todryk said. “He got some shots but we were able to hold him down. They did a great job, along with the rest of the defensive players back there today.”

Marshfield plays at Wausau East on Tuesday and hosts Merrill on Sept. 1 as it continues its Wisconsin Valley Conference season.

Tigers 3, Warriors 1
Wausau West 0 1 – 1
Marshfield 2 1 – 3
First half:
1. M, Eli Oba (Austin Gilbert assist), 5:25; 2. M, Gilbert (Matt McCann) 18:37.
Second half: 3. M, Alex Kelnhofer (unassisted), 45:35: 4. WW, Dustin Buchberger (Pao Her), 54:53.
Saves: M, Erik Holm 6; WW, Ben Lahren 5.
Records: Wausau West 4-1, 0-1 Wisconsin Valley Conference; Marshfield 1-3, 1-1 WVC.

MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield girls tennis team went 2-1 at its home invitational on Wednesday at Boson Courts.

The Tigers lost to Wisconsin Rapids 5-2 and defeated D.C. Everest 4-3 and Menomonie 6-1.

Marshfield’s No. 1 doubles team of Cammie Warner and Victoria Jensen were a perfect 3-0. Megan Hayes (No. 1 singles), Emily Pingel (No. 3 singles) and the No. 2 doubles team of Erin Ott and Brittany Seidel each went 2-1 for the Tigers. The No. 3 doubles team of Justin Bushee and Kendall Stauber, Susan Luo at No. 2 singles and Bridgett Welter at No. 4 doubles each went 1-2.

Susan Luo participated in perhaps the most exciting match of the day, losing a two-set tiebreaker by two points in her best performance of the year.

“The duo of Cammy Warner and Victoria Jensen absolutely dominated play on Wednesday,” Lieberman added. “From the first point of the first set until closing the match out, it was apparent the duo of was not to be outdone.”
