Fond du Lac 55, Everest 7

Everest was down by just one score at 14-7 to the #4 ranked Fond du Lac Cardinals after one quarter of play, but that’s as close as this game would get as Fondy pulled away to cruise to a 55-7 victory.

Everest found itself down 41-7 at halftime.

Quarterback Ethan Ostrowski connected with Bryan Halambeck for the Evergreens’ first and only score of the game.

The Evergreens fall to 1-3 on the season, while Fond du Lac improves to 3-1.

Everest will take to the road to play Wisconsin Rapids in Week 5.

Rhinelander 31, Wausau East 13

Rhinelander got a monster game from Drake Martin, who scored five touchdowns as the Hodags improved to 4-0 on Friday and handed the Lumberjacks their first loss of the season.

Rhinelander took a 18-7 lead into halftime– at that juncture in the game Martin had already scored three touchdowns.

Donovan Levrette and Matt Heinrich each scored touchdowns for East.

Wausau East, now 3-1, will square off against cross-town rival Wausau West in Week 5.

Oshkosh West 17, Wausau West 7

Oshkosh West built a 17-point lead at halftime and then had to hold off the charging Warriors who remained winless on the season.

Wausau West threatened to score late in the opening half, marching down to the Wildcats’ 10, but an interception on the final play of the half kept the Warriors off the scoreboard.

The Warriors finally broke through with just under 4 minutes left in regulation when quarterback Garrett Richardt hooked up with Max Helke on a 51-yard scoring strike. Nicholas Raasch added the extra point.

That would be the end of the scoring, however.

Helke paced the Warriors attack with nine receptions for 123 yards and a TD. Riley Taylor carried the load for Oshkosh West with 133 yards on 26 carries and a score.

The Valley Football Association victory was the second in a row for the Wildcats and brings their overall record to 2-2. Wausau West falls to 0-4.

The Warriors look for that elusive win No. 1 when they take on crosstown rival Wausau East in the legendary Log Game on Friday at 7 p.m. at Thom Field.

Newman 49, White Lake/Elcho 0

Newman notched yet another blowout victory, this time at the expense of White Lake/Elcho.

The Cardinals pretty much put this game away in the first half, racing out to a 42-0 lead at the intermission.

Newman will put their unbeaten record on the line next week as they host Saint Mary Catholic at Stiehm Stadium.

Girls Golf

The weather was an obstacle on Friday for Leg 4 of the Wisconsin Valley Conference girls golf meet in Wisconsin Rapids, but the rainy, blustery conditions failed to hinder Wausau’s Jasmine Yang, who earned yet another first place individual finish.

Yang carded a 42 to lead all golfers.

SPASH earned a first place finish as a team, followed by Wisconsin Rapids.  SPASH’s score was 180.  Rapids’ score of 206 just barely beat out Wausau’s 207.

Along with Yang’s performance, there was another bright spot for Wausau: the play of Julie Engebretson.  Engebretson stepped up to the varsity team to cover for a player out due to illness.  Engebretson took eight strokes off of her best score to help lead the team to a third place finish.
