The Weyauwega-Fremont football team headed to Manawa Oct. 12 hoping to end its season on a positive note.
That didn’t happen, as the Wolves handed the Indians a 42-0 Central Wisconsin 8 Conference defeat.
Manawa outgained W-F 245-81 on the ground and 165-26 through the air, had a 15-6 advantage in first downs and punted only once.
Sam Koehn scored on 4- and 1-yard runs for the Wolves in the first half, while Donny Sell threw a 10-yard TD pas to Wesley Krauss that gave Manawa a 20-0 halftime lead.
Logan Haas added 4- and 11-yard touchdown runs in the second half and Tristan Canterbury capped the scoring with a 1-yard run in the fourth quarter.
Haas led all rushers with 174 yards, while Corey Schmidt led W-F with 28. Sell completed six of his 14 passes for 139, including three to Krauss for 101 yards.
Brandon Loehrke led the W-F defense with a team-high 14 tackles. Dustin Hanes and Nathan Stelzner had added eight each; Cody Chase and Tre Blohm finished with seven each; Dan Prillwitz chipped in with six tackles and an interception; and Adam Krause and Andrew Wild finished with six tackles each.
The Indians finished with a 2-6 record and a 2-5 mark in the CWC-8.
“We got off to a fast start and then hit the very good teams and a pile of injuries,” coach Tom Chase said. “We had 10 new players on the field Friday due to injuries on both sides of the ball. No excuses. Manawa has a very nice team and will do well in the playoffs.”
