STRATFORD – The Stratford football team took one more step toward its outright Marawood Conference title since 2007 with a 28-0 shutout of Auburndale on Friday night at Tiger Stadium.

The Tigers won their sixth-straight game to improve to 6-1 overall and are now 6-0 in the Marawood Conference. Stratford can clinch a tie for the conference championship with a win at Pittsville next Friday, and win it outright by winning its final two games, which includes its finale on Oct. 14.

The last time Stratford tied for the conference title was in 2013 (with Marathon and Edgar). The outright win in 2007 capped a string of seven-straight either outright or shared Marawood titles for the Tigers.

Auburndale falls to 3-4 overall and 3-3 in the Marawood. The Apaches need to win one of their final two games to reach the WIAA playoffs. Auburndale hosts Marathon for its homecoming game on Oct. 7 and closes out its season at Tomahawk on Oct. 14.

Kamren Bornbach ran for 148 yards and scored on touchdown runs of 1, 31, and 2 yards. He also kicked two extra points and ran in a two-point conversion.

Stratford outgained Auburndale 348-142, including 257-61 on the ground.

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

“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.”

STEVENS POINT – Stevens Point scored twice in a five-minute span midway through the second half to edge Marshfield 3-2 in a Wisconsin Valley Conference boys soccer match Thursday night at the Portage County Soccer Complex.

The loss is the first for the Tigers in their last seven games after winning three and tying three in the previous six. Marshfield is now 7-6-3 overall and 3-4-1 in the Wisconsin Valley Conference. Point remains unbeaten, improving to 10-0-2 and 7-0-2 in the Valley.

Stevens Point led 1-0 at halftime before Marshfield forged ahead.

Klaus Friedli scored 5:29 into the second half and Luke McCann connected on a penalty kick in the 62nd minute to put the Tigers up 2-1.

Joey Dorgan counted with a penalty kick goal to tie it at the 70:16 mark and added the game-winner 4:56 later.

“The boys played good and had SPASH on their heels with some good scoring opportunities while we were up 2-1,” Marshfield coach Steve McCann said. “They tied it up on a questionable call for a penalty kick – phantom call with no real contact on the play. It was very disappointing when the kids played soe well.”

Marshfield hosts Wisconsin Rapids at 4 p.m. Tuesday at Griese Park.
