New Richmond football tops Amery, Somerset rolls Baldwin-Woodville

The New Richmond football team sent its seniors out in style, as the Tigers won their final home game of the 2013 season on Friday.

The Tigers scored twice in the first 10 minutes of the game and maintained the lead the rest of the way to defeat Amery 35-20.

New Richmond started the game with one of its best drives of the season, going 78 yards in nine plays. Senior Allan Wollenberg took a swing pass and scooted 23 yards for the initial Tiger touchdown.

The next Tiger score came on a 31-yard pass from Davis to Connor O'Loughlin. Davis ran 20 yards for a score in the second quarter to build the lead to 21-8.

Two more big plays produced the Tigers' second half touchdowns. Senior defensive end Keilan Mehls scooped up an Amery fumble, racing 25 yards to the end zone for the Tigers' third quarter touchdown. O'Loughlin gave the Tigers a chance to savor their win, building the lead to 35-14 with 6:39 by racing down the Amery sideline for a score.

Somerset fought off a pesky Baldwin-Woodville squad before rolling to a 54-26 win in Baldwin. B-W led 13-12 midway through the second quarter before the Spartans scored twice late in the second quarter to lead 28-13 at halftime.

In other Middle Border Conference action, Durand kept its title hopes alive by edging Prescott 30-28 while Ellsworth locked up a share of the conference title with a 26-14 win over Osceola.
