Weyauwega-Fremont’s football team will head into Central Wisconsin 8 Conference play this weekend on a winning note.
Trevor Flease ran for a game-high 103 yards and caught a 93-yard touchdown pass to help lead the Indians to a 26-14 nonconference win over Brillion Aug. 29.
Carl Koch added 80 yards on the ground for the Indians, Blake Hudziak completed five of six passes for 124 yards and the W-F defense held Brillion to six first downs.
The Indians didn’t waste any time getting on the scoreboard, as Koch capped the game’s opening drive with a 2-yard run with 8:05 remaining in the first quarter.
W-F soon had the ball in Brillion territory again, as Brandon Hanes blocked Alex Cooney’s punt and recovered the ball. The Indians couldn’t convert the turnover into points, however, as Jordan Stanick picked off a Flease pass.
The Lions scored eight seconds into the second quarter, as Dontae Krizenesky fond the end zone from 45 yards out on a fourth-and-1 play. Cooney missed his extra point attempt and the Indians held on to a 7-6 lead.
Hudziak hooked up with Flease on a 93-yard TD on a screen pass with 4:33 remaining in the first half. Hudziak added the extra point and the Indians took a 14-6 lead at the break.
Hudziak scored from a yard out with 8:16 to go in the third quarter to give the Indians a 20-6 advantage, but Brillion’s Dylan Knoespel cut into the lead with a 5-yard run with 2:48 remaining in the quarter. Krizenesky caught the two-point conversion pass from Knoespel to make it 20-14.
Hudziak scored from 2 yards out with 9:39 to go in the game for the final score.
The Indians had a 379-181 advantage in total yards.
W-F will head to Manawa to open CWC-8 play at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 5. The Wolves are 2-0 after opening the season with nonconference wins over Marion/Tigerton and Coleman.
