MARSHFIELD – Playing in the WIAA playoffs has become a tradition with the Marshfield football program. That tradition will continue in 2013.

Marshfield junior running back Caleb Alexander scored three touchdowns and the Tigers held Wisconsin Rapids’ running game in check as they rolled to a 35-7 win on Friday at Beell Stadium, clinching their 18th straight postseason appearance.

Marshfield scored on five of its first seven offensive possessions to open up a 35-0 lead early in the third quarter and start a running clock situation.

Marshfield improves to 5-1 overall and 4-0 in the Valley Football Association South Division, while Wisconsin Rapids drops to 1-5 and remains winless at 0-4 in the conference.

“We have a great tradition here and we go out to win every single game,” Alexander said. “That’s how we play – tough and to win.”

Alexander had 115 yards rushing on just seven carries, which included a 71-yard touchdown run on the first play of the second quarter that gave the Tigers a 14-0 lead. Alexander also had a 24-yard touchdown run to cap off Marshfield’s first drive of the game.

“We’ve got our offense together and are making great blocks,” Alexander said. “Every single game we’ve had guys score not even touched. You can’t ask for anything better.”

Wisconsin Rapids ended up with 178 yards rushing, but it took 49 carries to accomplish that total. The Raiders were playing without their top running back Ryan Duxbury and quarterback Jayson Wiernik, who were out with injuries.

Fullback Jeremy Statz tried to pick up the slack, running for 118 yards on 32 carries, but had only two runs of more than 10 yards as the Tigers’ defense held their own against the Raiders’ option offense.

“When you run that type of offense, you’re relying on those kids and their ability level to give the other team fits,” Marshfield coach Denny Goettl said. “I’m not saying that was the only reason we stopped them. Coach (defensive coordinator Len Luedtke Jr.) talked all week about assignment football. We made some adjustments stepping down inside. We played a good game.”

Keiron Howlett added a 16-yard touchdown run and Luke Zuiker hit Alexander for a 28-yard touchdown pass with 1:01 to go before halftime, putting Marshfield up 28-0 at the break.

Zuiker then tossed a 37-yard strike to Brad Krueger on the Tigers’ first possession of the third quarter to complete their scoring.

Rapids’ only score came midway through the fourth quarter on a 2-yard run by Statz.

“Hopefully we can keep winning football games and doing the best we can keeping healthy, perfecting what we do on offense and defense, and we’re going to hope for the best,” Goettl said.

Marshfield hosts Menasha next week for its homecoming game. The game will be at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4, at Beell Stadium and will be broadcast on WDLB-AM 1450 and wdlbwosq.com.

MARSHFIELD – Marshfield came into Thursday’s Wisconsin Valley Conference volleyball match with Wausau East in desperate need of a win.

After going 1-2 at the first WVC tournament on Saturday, the Tigers found themselves in third place in the conference, two games behind undefeated East.

Marshfield dropped the first game and fell behind late in Game 2 before rallying and dominating the Lumberjacks the rest of the way, winning 19-25, 25-21, 25-19, 25-20, at Parent’s Night at Marshfield High School.

The Tigers improve to 4-2 in the Valley, while East drops to 5-1.

East led 20-15 late in Game 2 and it looked like the Lumberjacks were on their way to a rout. Suddenly, Marshfield’s fortunes changed.

Senior Darian Molter served eight straight points to give the Tigers a 23-20 led, and after the two teams traded sideouts, Anna Ripp served out the win to even the match.

“I don’t know how to explain it,” Marshfield coach Dawn Sadowska said. “We’ve struggled all year where we dig that hole and we can’t get out of it. That’s what happened that first game. Something just flipped the switch for them. Something happened and they took over.”

Marshfield trailed 15-13 midway through the third game before rallying again. Chelsea Akin served five straight points, all earned on kills by the Tigers. Courtney Bauer, who had a team-high 19 kills for Marshfield, had a pair in the rally that put the Tigers on top 21-16 and on their way to the victory.

Marshfield closed out the match with a dominating performance in Game 4. Bauer had six kills and a service ace down the right sideline that ended the match.

Miranda Forrest added 11 kills, Molter had 18 digs and Akin added 14, Ripp had 17 assists and Sara Dasler had 16, and Stephanie Rhodes and Ellie Fehrenbach each had six block kills in the well-rounded win for the Tigers.

“Our setters did an awesome job of using all of our hitters, but of course that came from our passing,” Sadowska said. “That was something we were struggling with. The fact that we were able to use all of our hitters, they (East) weren’t able to block us and defense was a lot harder for them.”

Marshfield is off until next Thursday when it plays at Stevens Point.
