OSHKOSH – The Marshfield football team took a big step toward ending a three-year WIAA playoff drought with a 54-0 drubbing of Oshkosh North in a Valley Football Association game Friday at Titan Stadium.

The Tigers are now 4-3 overall and 3-3 in the VFA West. With a win at D.C. Everest on Oct. 6 or at home against Wausau West on Oct. 13, Marshfield would become playoff eligible. A pair of wins would guarantee a playoff berth.

Oshkosh North is now 0-7 overall and 0-6 in the VFA South.

Marshfield ripped off 31 points in the opening quarter of its dominating performance.

Brant Bohman had a 35-yard touchdown run and a 56-yard punt return for a score that bookended 3-yard TD runs by Ryan Krueger and Isaiah Baierl, and a 33-yard field goal from Mason Coffren.

The Tigers held Oshkosh North to just 56 total yards, and only 19 rushing.

Marshfield’s JV quarterback Joey Goettl threw an 8-yard TD pass to Caden Pearce and ran in from the 15 to finish off the scoring in the fourth quarter.

AUBURNDALE – The game couldn’t have started any better for the Stratford football team in its game Friday night against Auburndale.

Stratford needed just five offensive plays to score a touchdown, and the Tigers forced a fumble on Auburndale’s first play and scored four plays later to build a quick two-touchdown lead that set the tone in a 40-7 victory at Auburndale High School.

With the victory Stratford ensures itself of a WIAA playoff berth for the 26th-straight season. The Tigers also stay in contention for a second-straight Marawood Conference title, improving to 6-1 overall and 4-0 in conference play. Auburndale drops to 3-4 and 2-3 in the Marawood.

“I give our guys credit, they did a good job,” Stratford coach Jason Tubbs said. “Our offensive line kept their feet moving and opened some holes for Kade (Ehrike) and our other running backs to do their jobs.”

Quarterback Mark Handrick had a 27-yard touchdown run on the Tigers’ fifth play to get the scoring started.

Stratford forced a fumble that was recovered by Connor Multerer on Auburndale’s first play of the game, and four plays later Kade Ehrike ran in from the 4 to give the Tigers a quick 14-0 lead. Ehrike finished with 192 yards on 19 carries.

Auburndale was never able to recover, earning just four first downs and only 14 yards rushing on 20 carries against a stout Stratford defense that was in the Apaches’ offensive backfield for much of the game.

“We got behind the eight-ball right off the bat, and against a good team,” Auburndale coach Jay Anderson said. “I really think our guys wanted to come out and compete, and sometimes that really takes the wind out of your sails. They are a tough team to defend.”

Auburndale’s defense held on Stratford’s next three possessions before the Tigers finished the first half with a pair of scores.

A 29-yard run by Jordan Becker set up a 3-yard touchdown run from A.J. Schoenfuss to give Stratford a 20-0 lead with 4:11 to go in the first half.

A 53-yard kickoff return by Trayton Weister put Auburndale in scoring position, but the Apaches were stopped at the 9 after three consecutive incomplete passes.

Ehrike raced 70 yards on Stratford’s first play of the next possession and scored his second TD from the 6 with 28 seconds to go before halftime. A two-point pass from Handrick to Becker made it 28-0 at intermission.

“He has a burst that I haven’t seen in a running back in quite a while,” Tubbs said of Ehrike. “He reminds me a lot of Matt Olson and Chris Olson back in the day. He’s fun to watch, he’s a great athlete, and a three-sport athlete that you don’t see a lot of anymore, and good at all three. I’m really happy he’s on our side.”

Becker and Schoenfuss added rushing touchdowns in the second half, and Auburndale scored its only touchdown on a 65-yard pass from Ryan Issacson to Cale Jacoby with 8:14 remaining in the game.

The Apaches remain in playoff contention. If they win at winless Chequamegon next Friday, Auburndale would finish 3-3 in the Marawood, making them playoff eligible. Teams that finish .500 in its conference are not guaranteed a spot in the postseason, but it is rare that they are kept out.

Anderson said he wants his team to stay focused on the task at hand and not overlook the 0-7 Screaming Eagles.

“We focused on coming into the season was being able to compete and get these guys in the mindset to be focused on team unity, staying together, the enthusiasm and competition, and we really have,” Anderson said. “As far as our execution, we still have a ways to go.

“I had to remind our guys that we can’t take anyone for granted. Our wins haven’t been easy. There isn’t anyone out there that we can take for granted, or should. We can’t lose sight of the fact that we have a 2½ hour trip ahead of us and we need to improve.”

Stratford heads into its final two games at home next Friday against Marathon and Oct. 13 at Edgar with the conference championship in its sight.

EAU CLAIRE – The Spencer/Columbus football team keeps on rolling.

The Rockets shut out Eau Claire Regis in the first half and went on to a 23-8 victory in a Cloverbelt Conference game Thursday at Carson Park. The win is Spencer/Columbus’ fourth in a row and it improves to 6-1 overall and in Cloverbelt play. Regis drops to 5-2 overall and 4-2 in the conference.

“Regis was well-prepared and will be a good playoff team,” Spencer/Columbus coach Jason Gorst said. “I was happy with the way our guys played in some rough moments. Ethan’s (Meece) pick at the end of the half in the end zone was a huge momentum play. (Lineman) Logan (Zschernitz) had a great game on both sides of the ball. Hunter (Luepke) gave us a little extra and really created some yards after contact.”

Spencer/Columbus hosts Altoona in its Cloverbelt finale next Friday, Oct. 6, at Beell Stadium in Marshfield as part of the Columbus Catholic High School’s homecoming week. The Rockets finish the regular season Oct. 13 with a nonconference game at Glenwood City.

Hunter Luepke ran for 181 yards and scored all three Rockets’ touchdowns, and added a pair of two-point conversion runs in the win.

Luepke had TD runs of 5 and 2 yards in the first half, and scored conversions after each to put Spencer/Columbus up 16-0 at halftime.

After a scoreless third quarter, Regis cut it to a one-possession game when Andrew Root scored from the 3 just 31 seconds into the fourth.

The Rockets held from there and Luepke added a 6-yard TD run late to ice it for SC.

MARSHFIELD – Wisconsin Valley Lutheran gave the Marshfield Columbus soccer team all it could handle for a little more than a half, but the Dons finally got their offense clicking and ran away with a 4-1 victory in a Central Wisconsin Conference match Thursday at Griese Park.

The Dons’ powerful offense was held at bay for most of the first half as Wisconsin Valley Lutheran was able to push the ball out of its half of the field time after time.

Coleton Schubring scored on a penalty kick in the 37th minute to give the Wolves a 1-0 lead before the Dons finally got things going.

Evan Dieringer scored off an assist from Zach Olson with 2:23 to go before halftime to tie the game.

After 10 minutes of scoreless soccer, Columbus’ Nadim Torbey countered WVL’s goal with a penalty kick of his own, and less than 2 minutes later Torbey scored again to put the Dons up 3-1.

Dieringer added a goal on a long kick from the top right corner of the penalty box with 1:49 to go to provide the final margin.

“We needed some more communication on the defensive end, we needed more supportive runs from the forwards, and we cleaned it up in the second half,” Columbus Catholic coach Jeff Edwards said. “The first half was really bad, no one was talking, and we deserved to be tied because we were not playing well.”

With the victory, Columbus (12-3-1, 9-1 CWC) keeps pace with Central Wisconsin Conference leader Amherst/Iola-Scandinavia/Rosholt to remain one-half game out of first place. With four conference games remaining, including a regular-season finale Oct. 13 against the Falcons, Edwards said he is pleased the team is in position to compete for the conference title.

“It will be interesting here,” Edwards said. “If we win out we can win conference again. It would be nice to do. We’re expecting a good game with Pacelli here on Monday. We’re thankful for Northland Lutheran tying Amherst, and they have to still play them again, so who knows what will happen there.”

Columbus hosts Stevens Point Pacelli on Monday at Griese Park.
