State Football Titles Won in Four Divisions Thursday

Issue Date: November 27, 2019

Champions in Divisions 4, 5, 6 and 7 were crowned at the 2019 State Football Championships Thursday at Camp Randall Stadium.

Catholic Memorial (12-2) won its second straight championship and its third in the past four seasons by rolling past Kiel 35-0 in the Division 4 final at Camp Randall Stadium Thursday night.

The Crusaders controlled the game from the opening kickoff. The Crusaders outgained the Raiders 474-88 in total offense in the game.

Luke Fox connected with Joe Sikma on the first play from scrimmage for a 65-yard touchdown pass to jump out to a 7-0 lead. They increased their lead to 14-0 on their next drive on a 4-yard run by Alex Oechsner at the 7:24 mark of the first quarter. 

Catholic Memorial scored twice in the second quarter to build the halftime lead to 27-0. Obacoso Allen scored on a 2-yard run, and Fox ran to pay dirt from 12 yards out. 

The only score of the second half was a 23-yard scoring strike from Fox to Allen with 3:17 remaining in the third quarter to run the score to 35-0.

Fox led the Crusaders with 253 yards passing, completing 16-of 23 passes and two touchdowns, as well as 103 yards rushing with a score. Joe Sikma caught five passes for the game-high 138 yards and a touchdown. Defensively, the Crusaders were led by Sergio Carini with nine tackles, including a sack.

Mitchell Mahler was 8-for-25 passing for 51 yards for the Raiders, and Clayton Lepisto ran for a team-high 32 yards. Hunter Scharenbroch led the team in receiving with five catches for 36 yards.

Catholic Memorial has now won four titles. Previously, they won the Division 3 championship three times, including last season. Kiel (13-1) finishes runner-up in its first-ever appearance in the title game.

Lake Country Lutheran (13-1) erased a 13-0 first quarter deficit to upend previously undefeated Stratford in the Division 5 title game of the 2019 State Football Championship at Camp Randall Stadium Thursday evening.

A 43-yard punt return by Colten Schillinger set up the first score of the game on a drive that covered just 25 yards to give Stratford a 7-0 advantage at the 8:06 of the first quarter. The Tigers increased their lead to 13-0 at 3:17 remaining in the first quarter on a 17-yard pass from Max Schwabe to Justin Radke.

The Lightning defense stiffened to allow just 61 yard the rest of the game, including five yards in the entire second half. 

Lake Country Lutheran got on the board with 6:19 remaining in the first half on a 5-yard pass from Jacob Studer to Andrew Schumacher, cutting the deficit to 13-7. They tied the game at 13-13 with 8:41 remaining in the game on a 28-yard strike from Luke Haertle to Schumacher. The extra-point was blocked. 

With 4:25 remaining in the game, Haertle split the middle of the Tigers' defense to score on a 20-yard scamper to give the Lightning their first lead at 20-13. Chase Caliendo capped the scoring with a quarterback sack in the end zone for a safety for the final margin of victory.

Haertle completed 12-of-26 passes for 210 yards and a touchdown. He also ran for 34 yards and a score. Schumacher caught a game-high five passes for 97 yards and two touchdowns, while Zech Hans caught four passes for 105 yards. Schumacher also led the defense with game-high 13 tackles.

Max Schwabe connected on 6-of-12 passes for 68 yards and a touchdown for the Tigers. Beau Gross led the team in both rushing and receiving. He carried the ball 17 times for 69 yards and a touchdown, and he made two receptions for 37 yards.

Lake Country Lutheran wins its first State championship in its second appearance in the final. Stratford (13-1) finishes runner-up for the second straight season, completing their season in the State championship game for the ninth time.

St. Mary's Springs (12-2) won its third straight championship by blanking Regis 7-0 in the Division 6 title tilt at Camp Randall Stadium Thursday afternoon.

The score ties the Division 6 record for the fewest points scored by two teams in a championship game.

The lone score of the game came on the opening drive. The Ledgers marched the ball 80 yards on 19 plays that consumed 10:09 of the clock. Marcus Orlandoni plowed in from a yard out, and Ben Fouch added the extra point to give the Ledgers all the points they needed.

The Ledgers' defense allowed just 134 yards of total offense. The furthest advance by Regis was to the Ledgers' 34-yard line. Jacob Koffman led the staunch defense with 11 tackles. Orlandoni paced the Springs' offense with 75 yards rushing on 20 carries, and David Mueller added 59 yards on 14 rushes.

Tristan Root led all rushers in the game with 82 yards for the Ramblers. The defense was led by Luke Rooney with 18 tackles and Henry Theisen with 11 stops.

St. Mary's Springs has now won a membership-leading nine titles. They have won the Division 6 championship seven times. They also have two titles in Division 5, including last season and in 2009. Regis (13-1) finishes runner-up in its sixth State championship game appearance.

Black Hawk/Warren (14-0) won the Division 7 title with a 6-0 shutout over Edgar at the WIAA State Football Championships at Camp Randall Stadium Thursday morning.

The only score of the game came on 30-yard pass from Ethan Williams to Cayden Milz with 1:38 remaining in the first half. The play was set-up by 53-yard run by Jalen Rufenacht on the previous play. The game set the Division 7 championship game record for fewest points scored by both teams.

It appeared as if Edgar may have tied the game midway through the fourth quarter, but a Wildcats' 33-yard pass for an apparent score was negated by a holding penalty, and a pass to the end zone that went through the hands of the intended receiver in the same series of downs.

Rufenacht was the game's leading rusher with 101 yards on 18 carries for the Warriors, and Williams completed 9-of-16 passes for 102 yards. Milz caught two passes for a team-high 48 yards. The Warriors' stellar defensive effort surrendered just 141 yards of total offense to the Wildcats. Milz also led the Warriors on defense with a team-high eight tackles.

Kaleb Hafferman led the Wildcats on the ground with 44 yards on 16 carries. Konnor Wolf completed 4-of-13 passes for 33 yards. Carson Lemmer was the game's leading tackler with 14 tackles for the Ramblers

It's the first championship for the Black Hawk/Warren co-op, but Black Hawk won the title last season as a stand-alone program and was runner-up in 2017. Black Hawk also won the title in 2013. Edgar (12-2) finishes runner-up for the second straight season and for the sixth time overall in their 13 appearances in the final.
