Wausau Pilot & Review
WESTON – The D.C. Everest football team jumped into a tie for second place in the Valley Football Association with Wausau West after defeating the Warriors 13-7 in the regular-season finale for both teams on Friday night at Stiehm Stadium.
Gabe Golbach kicked field goals of 27 yards in the first quarter and 29 yards in the third quarter, and Logan George threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Pierson MacDonald in the second to pace the Evergreens.
West held D.C. Everest to just 25 rushing yards, but George finished 12-for-20 for 142 yards to give the Evergreens enough offense to pull out the win.
Carter Amerson hauled in a 16-yard touchdown pass form Jack Kostroski in the fourth quarter for Wausau West’s only score as it fell short in its comeback attempt. Amerson caught five passes for 59 yards and Jackson Ngo had 69 yards rushing for the Warriors.
Both teams end the regular season at 7-2 overall and 5-2 in the Valley Football Association.
